    Only way is to fish, go to a large dock area and map out your fishing spots. If you can find some alacrity scrolls they will help, but outside of paying mint for transcendence scrolls, you must fish. Once you hit 75 get a boat and go fishing. Be prepared for the sea serpents however!! If you have access to a vollem, they are wonderful protectors.

    Have fun fishing, and save up for a high seas boat, you will need the storage. Oh and if you don't already have high seas, go get it!!

    If you go to the Royal City in Ter Mur, Ortlem the Mystic (south of the farmer's market tent) offers a quest called "A Mystic's Journey." He wants 100 daemon bones and 100 dragon blood. You can get the daemon bones by killing void creatures in Ter Mur (i.e., the sparkly black monsters with name in red that spawn near the edges of most land masses) or by killing stuff in Doom dungeon. The dragon blood is obtained by killing and skinning reptiles (dragons, sliths, etc.). The reward for the quest is a Crystal Ball of Knowledge. If you keep one turned on in your fisher's backpack while she is fishing, it will tell you whether or not you are fishing in a good spot to get fishing gains.

    Thanks Tina, for some reason I did not know about this. Is it similar to the fish finder that puts you on schooling fish?

    No, it has more in common with the skill tutor statuette. All my training chars carry one.

    Hello MareJadeSky...

    Tina Small is right on here... I like to have the char who is training fishing sit in one spot where my Crystal Ball of Knowledge says it's optimal for gains to fish. This one is simple. Get the Crystal Ball of Knowledge and nose your ship against a shore. Fish. If the Ball says it's too easy back up one and try again. Rinse and repeat until you get optimal.
    For great info on fishing, UOGuide is your friend. Here's an excerpt from the Fishing page:
