|Attractive to other birds and hunters alike.|
A Stripy feather is a drop from the Tropical wagtail bird caught using the Hunter skill. Level 19 Hunting and at least one bird snare are needed to catch these birds in the Feldip Hunter area. These feathers may be used with a fly fishing rod to catch Rainbow fish in rivers of RuneScape. Rainbow fish give 80 Fishing experience per catch, 110 Cooking experience to cook, and are used raw as bait for deadfall trapping Barb-tailed Kebbits in the Feldip Hunter area.
The rainbow fish give more xp per catch than trouts and salmons, but the fishing speed is considerably slower. At fishing level 45, using normal feathers gives around 80% more xp than stripy feathers in the same duration.
Stripy feathers can also be used the same as a normal feather in the Fletching skill.
