Used for fly fishing.
Feather detail

Feathers are used in the Fishing and Fletching skills. In fishing, feathers are used as lures for fly fishing. Feathers may also be used as bait for Barbarian heavy-rod fishing, as a cheaper alternative to fishing bait. In fletching, feathers are used to make arrows, darts, and bolts. Feathers are not notable, as they stack in your inventory.

These are the only feathers that can be used to summon a Newtroost during the Creature Creation activity in the Tower of Life, as coloured feathers are not accepted by the altar.

Obtaining feathers Edit

Feathers can be bought at a number of stores across RuneScape including Gerrant's Fishy Business, which is located in Port Sarim, and can also be obtained as drops from many monsters, most notably chickens, which drop them in amounts of 5, 10, and 15. They can of course also be bought from players.

Coloured feathers can be acquired from snaring birds using the Hunter skill.

Shops containing feathers also have Feather packs added beside them of which allows players to purchase up to 100 feathers at a time within the package. The price of the package is an additional 46 coins more than purchasing the feathers individually but is a faster method of buying feathers.
