This is the regular Fishing guide, the guide for ironman / hardcore ironman players can be found here.
Fishing is a skill which involves catching fish from selected spots around Etherum. Higher Fishing levels allow for better fish to be caught and also increases a player's catch rate. The fish that you catch may be cooked using the Cooking skill to create food which may be used later to regain hitpoints during combat. Fishing is also a good way to make money, as players often want to buy the raw fish to train their cooking levels.
Getting Fishing Supplies
Each fish requires a specific set of equipment in order to be caught. There are three fishermen in Etherum, one in Catherby another one in Karamja, and the last is in the Donator Zone. These Fishermen sell the equipment used for fishing

You can get to the Donator Zone by using the "Donator Zone" teleport which is found in the Donator section of the Quest Tab or by typing ::dz. When you arrive from your teleport, simply run north and you will see a fishing spot in the river.

All though Karambwans give more experience than all other fish, they can only be fished in the wilderness which makes acquiring them very difficult.
