Fishing is the skill that provides the raw material for the best source of healing in the game. It is also one of the 3 skills that can be camped for AFK experience. However, it is less crucial for players than the other skills, as it is possible to train most skills without access to food.
There are only two different types of Fishing Pools on the map - shallow and deep. Each pool has a different group of fish that can be caught, and the probability of getting better fish changes with each increased fishing level. At 100 Fishing, The Shallow pool will only provide Mullet, while the Deep pool will still provide Boxfish, Rockfish and Starslugs.
From 20 Fishing and 10 Construction, Shallow Pool Camps require 5 Oak Logs, a Saw and a Net. Deep Pool Camps require 50 Fishing and 30 Construction, and require 5 King Maple Logs, a Saw and a Net.

Training Strategy Edit
Similar to other campable skills, training manually for the first 20 levels then camping at the best pool you can is the best way to train. Most people choose to train fishing at the pools near Cadgwith as they are close to a bank, and the fishing store for buying new nets. However, there is no king maple tree nearby, meaning that logs should be cut beforehand, and just retrieved from the bank.
If you have a reasonable crafting and thieving level, you should definitely consider using bags for your nets. That way you can bring more tools in a single trip while allowing more logs to be held at once. For deep pools you could consider a king maple bag of 30 slots, with a net bag of 10 slots, which would allow you to build 10 camps before heading back to the bank, and you would have just enough space for 3 different noted fish, coins, your net and saw.
