Bolts are made by using a metal bar at an anvil while you have a hammer in your inventory. This grants Smithing experience. The bolts created in this process are unfinished and still require fletching (they need feathers). This part provides the Fletching experience. Bolts are also the fastest way to acquire experience, and you will not lose much money. It is also great combined with Smithing

The village was once the home of Jimmy Edwards (1920–1988).

Fletching (also known as a flight or feather) is the aerodynamic stabilization of arrows or darts with materials such as feathers, each piece of which is referred to as a fletch. A fletcher is a person who attaches the fletching.

The hamlet of Sharpsbridge lies in the south of the parish.

Achey logs can be whittled into ogre arrow shafts. Each achey log yields between 2 and 6 arrow shafts. Four feathers are needed for each shaft. The shafts may be tipped with wolf bone arrowheads or with nails. Ogre shafts tipped with nails are called "brutals" and are especially useful for killing Zogres. Any type of metal may be used for the nails.

Currently, the only known method to give a boost to the fletching level is by eating orange spicy stews. However, the amount of boost is random.

It has an historic church of St. Andrew and St. Mary the Virgin dating from the twelfth century.[4] Simon de Montfort prayed there before the Battle of Lewes. Historian Edward Gibbon (1737–1794) is interred in the Sheffield Mausoleum attached to the north transept of the church,[5] having died in Fletching while staying with his great friend, John Baker-Holroyd, 1st Earl of Sheffield.

Fletching is a skill which allows the player to create various types of ranged weapons and their ammunition. The products of this skill are primarily used in the combat skill, Ranged. It also provides some of the most popular materials used for High Alchemy, which is one of the main methods for training the Magic skill.

The following table shows every type of bolt available.

In medieval times Fletching was a major producer of bows and arrows, many of which were used at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415.

As with all skills, your Fletching level will temporarily rise by one when a Fletching skillcape is worn. Though it requires level 99 Fletching to buy/wear.

Some quests give Fletching experience as a one-time quest reward.

The stringing of the bows is very intensive work and allows little room for other interaction. Any merchanting for materials would need to overlap with the cutting phase of fletching bows. An option is to keep both coins and a noted log in your inventory while fletching unstrung bows, to be able to engage in trades easily. Another good time to merchant for materials is during the high alching of the fletched bows.

The following table shows experience per item made and per 10 items made (the amount made per metal bar).

Javelin are made by attatching javelin heads to javelin shafts

To fletch crossbows, a player must make a crossbow stock out of a log using a knife. Then, metal limbs must be added using a hammer. Finally, a crossbow string must be added to the unstrung crossbow.

Fletching is a tedious and monotonous skill. However, players can take advantage of the fact that fletching must be done in a bank, preferably a crowded one. The fletcher can make some money on the side by merchanting. Seers' Village bank is good for buying more fletching supplies, while the bank of Castle Wars is good for trading armour and weapons.

This section shows the maximum possible experience per hour, and the potential costs, for fletching or stringing the high level shortbows and shieldbows. The last column shows what the possible profit/loss is per hour, according to the info on the left.

Players will encounter many random events while fletching; however, there are no random events that pertain to fletching.

Some quests grant Fletching experience. Refer to the main article for more details.

The school is Fletching CE Primary school.[6] There are two public houses in Fletching: The Griffin Inn (which calls itself a gastropub) and The Rose and Crown. Nearby is The Piltdown Man at Piltdown (now called The Lamb).

Although they are sold as ‘left wing’ and ‘right wing’, this does not reflect the hand of the archer. It is the wing of the bird, not the handedness of the archer.  A left handed archer can shoot a right wing feather perfectly well.  Just do not mix them!  Choose one or the other and you are all set.

The word is related to the French word flèche, meaning "arrow", via Old French; the ultimate root is Frankish fliukka.

We are looking for volunteers to help us plan, set up and run the Fletching Festival on Saturday 16th July 2016. The event will start with a soap box derby at 12pm, followed by fun and games on the Recreation Ground from 2pm until 5pm. Then from 5pm there will be a street party in the High Street. Here is a list of the stalls and activities we need more volunteers for:

Bolts are the standard ammunition for crossbows. They are created by combining unfinished bolts with feathers. One feather is consumed for every unfinished bolt and are finished bolts are created in stacks of 10. Finished bolts can be improved by adding bolt tips to them. For example Sapphire bolt tips can be attached to Mithril bolts to create Sapphire bolts. Improved bolts can be enchanted using the Enchant Crossbow Bolt spell.


The next Fletching Festival Committee meeting is on Thursday 3rd December at 8pm in the Village Hall, anyone is welcome to attend. If you are able to help with any of the above, please contact Katherine Rumble on 01444 483080 or e-mail emailProtector.addCloakedMailto("ep_79742ae7", 1);

There is no golden rule about what size fletching to use.  Generally speaking, the smaller the arrow the smaller the fletching, and vice-versa.

Fletching requires various items, depending on what a player wishes to create. These items are relatively universal, with slight differences based on exactly what is made. All sorts of fletching require logs, a knife, and other various supplies, which can be found below.

This trading method usually gives less profit than if you were to buy and sell separately. Therefore, if you're looking to earn a little cash and do not mind the trouble, sell your bows off at the market price first, then buy fresh materials.

This section will show the time and number of either logs or unstrung bows and bowstrings needed to reach level 99 if switching to each newly unlocked bow type you can fletch as soon as possible, along with the prices of the materials involved; logs, bowstrings, unstrung bows and finished bows.

You can fletch darts by adding feathers to a smithed dart.

If you do not like the hassle of buying materials and sell the finished bows everytime, you may want to try trading your finished bows for the materials (logs and bowstrings) in community forums, especially the official Fletching marketplace forum. This means that you only need to purchase materials only for the first batch of bows you make.
