A player wearing the angler's outfit.

The Angler's outfit is an experience-boosting clothing set that grants 2.5% additional experience when worn while participating in the Fishing skill. Bonus experience is not granted for random events, Experience lamps, or Experience Tomes. A Fishing level of 34 is required to wear any piece of the outfit. Showing the completed Angler's outfit to Kylie Minnow is required in order to gain access to the minnows in the Fishing Guild, but does not need to be equipped. A particular Sherlock master skill challenge requires that the full outfit be equipped.

The Angler's outfit can be stored in the Armour case space in the POH.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

After completing a game of Fishing Trawler, pieces of the outfit may be found in the trawler net directly west of the boat. Players have a 1/8 chance[1] of receiving a piece of the outfit that they do not currently own.

It may also be obtained from aerial fishing, by purchasing it from Alry the Angler for a price of 100 Molch pearls per piece.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Prior to an update on 11 August 2016, Ironman accounts could not obtain this outfit, due to Fishing Trawler forbidding Ironman accounts from participating. This was changed after the addition of an activity bar on the minigame.
  • If the player equips the set from level 34, the set will save approximately 337,644 experience if levelling to 99, and 4,897,799 experience if levelling to 200 million. Thus any player should assess whether the time investment for the game is prudent, as the random nature of receiving the set can outweigh the potential time saved from the set. However, the set is necessary for a Master clue step
  • Contrary to popular belief, there are no angler gloves.
