I decided, again, to get level 99 in my fletching skill. This time, I know it's possible. I have a straightforward plan, a way to make a profit, and advice from other master fletchers. The road may be long, but it is profitable.
I went straight to the Grand Exchange in Varrock and bought 3300 unstrung yew longbows, 5000 flax, and 3300 nature runes. 2,541,800 coins were spent to obtain this, but I know I'll make at least 2,534,400 coins with this one load alone, a 132,000 coin profit on my first step.
The hardest part so far has been the distractions. Already today, I have gone to pest control, Catherby for Chiafriend12's master fletching party, and many other places for the second third of the Seers Village achievement diary, which I have still not completed!
If the distractions would go away, I'd only be worried about one thing: the speed at which I spin flax into bowstring is almost nonexistent!
I created 477 yew longbows today.

There were almost no distractions today, I'm thankful for that. I compared supplies with another person who is going for 99 fletching, although they are much further into their goal:
I got my first fletching levelup of the goal at approximately 7:00pm:
I made 2044 yew longbows today.
