I hope you have this ?

A knife

Can be bought at the shop assistant at ::home


How to do Aerial Fishing:

To get there:

Use the portal nexus at ::home, go to skilling, and teleport to Aerial fishing

Once there:

Pick up about 3 king worms from around the island


Right click on Alry the Angler and click "Get bird"


Lastly get fishing by going to the edges of the island and clicking on the fishing spots

They move around but runelite should help them standout. 

Green ones are the best to go for because they are closer so you catch the fish quicker. However the blue ones work just fine.


When out of king worms, cut your fish into fish chunks by using your knife on the fish. 

This is done because each time you click on a fishing spot there is a chance to reward your bird with king worms or fish chunks. 

Cutting the fish also provides cooking xp depending on the level of the fish.
