  1. White Wolf Mountain:
    Here is the exit from White Wolf Mountain to enter Catherby. There are lots of wolves on the mountain, so be careful. They vary in level from 25, 38, and 73. Wearing good armor and carrying food is recommended for lower level players. There is a tunnel under the mountain which players can use freely as long as they have completed the Fishing Contest Quest.

  2. Fishing area:
    This is one of the most popular fishing areas in all of Runescape. It contains 2 places to Cage and Harpoon fish, 3 places to Net and Harpoon fish, and 2 places to Net and Bait fish (NB. Some of the spots may disappear at times). A bank and range are also nearby, so this is the recommended fishing area for members that cannot get into the Fishing Guild. There is also a fruit tree patch to the east of the fishing spots.

  3. Harry's Fishing Shop:
    Here you can buy and sell raw fish to Harry cheaply, since the shop is almost always highly stocked. The prices do vary with quantity, because the quantity changes a lot. It is a good place to train cooking, since you can buy fish very cheaply, and cook them in the range nearby. If you bring Harry a fishbowl with seaweed and water, he will give you a tiny net to catch a fish to put in the fishbowl.

  4. Hickton's Archery Emporium:
    Here you can buy all kinds of ranging and fletching equipment for pretty cheap prices. This shop is often well stocked, most of the time full of lower level arrows; the higher level ones are often sold out. The prices vary with quantity because many people buy and sell arrows here. Hickton will also sell you a Fletching Cape of Achievement for 99k if you have 99 fletching.
