The oily fishing rod is a unique fishing rod made during the Heroes' Quest by using blamish oil with a normal fishing rod. An oily fishing rod can be used with fishing bait to catch lava eels and infernal eels. The oily fishing rod cannot be used to obtain the ring of charos from the Edgeville well when you are required to place it in there during Garden of Tranquillity. It also cannot be used during the competition in the Fishing Contest.
Note that this item is also used during a hard wilderness diary task, so do not drop it after the quest unless you've completed that task or you do not plan on ever completing it.
If lost, players can make a new one by buying a sample bottle from the general store in Canifis, obtaining a thin snail or fat snail and using it with a pestle and mortar, combining the blamish snail slime with a Harralander potion(unf) to make blamish oil, then using it on a Fishing rod.
Players can remove the oil from the fishing rod with a Cleaning cloth.
