Fishing rod detail.png

A Fishing rod is an item used to catch fish through the Fishing skill. It can be bought from Gerrant's Fishy Business in Port Sarim, Harry's Fishing Shop in Catherby, or Hank's Fishing Shop in Lumbridge. A fishing rod can be stored in the Toolbelt.

In order to fish, players must have fishing bait in their inventory and at least one inventory slot to hold a fish (more inventory slots for more fishes), for every fish except Rocktail. To catch Rocktail you will need Living Minerals instead of fishing bait. It was once possible to lose your rod from random events, but after the 25 February 2009 updates, it is now impossible for this to happen. Free players can use it to catch Sardines, Herrings, and Pikes. Members can use Blamish snail slime on it to turn it into an Oily fishing rod. The Oily fishing rod can only be used to catch Lava Eels.

Using this type of rod, you can catch:
