Does Fly Fishing Need Bait Osrs?

Fly fishing is a unique and exciting way to enjoy catching fish. It requires skill, patience, and a good attitude to succeed.

In order to catch fish on the fly, you need the right equipment, the right fly and the right bait. For many anglers, this is where the question of whether or not fly fishing needs bait comes into play.

The answer to this depends on what type of fishing you are doing and what species of fish you are Targeting. In general, trout and other small gamefish can be caught without bait using a dry fly or a nymph.

Larger species such as bass may require bait in order to entice them to bite. Additionally, adding bait can often increase your chances of catching more fish when fly fishing.

When it comes to Old School Runescape (OSRS), there are several options for those looking to use bait while fly fishing. OSRS offers several types of baits including worms, maggots, minnows and other small creatures that can be used in combination with flies or on their own. The most popular type of bait used while fly fishing in OSRS is shrimp.

Using shrimp as bait while fly fishing in OSRS has several advantages over other types of baits. It’s easy to find and gather in the wild and it’s a natural food source for many species of fish that inhabit the rivers and lakes within OSRS. Additionally, shrimp are easy to store and maintain over long periods of time making them an ideal choice for those looking for an easy-to-use yet effective bait.


In conclusion, while some anglers may be able to catch trout or small gamefish without using any type of bait while fly fishing in OSRS, adding some form of bait can greatly increase one’s chances at success. Shrimp is one type of bait that is widely available in Old School Runescape that can be used for this purpose with excellent results.
