This quest is given by Delvin Mallory . “Fishing” is just HIS way of saying “ Pickpocketing “, so for this job you will be tasked to take a RANDOM item from a RANDOM person throughout Skyrim, so as you can see you may end up going to a number of places.

There’s two things to know about pickpocketing. The first is that your mark will OFTEN be walking around out in the open. This means that you’re going to need to TAIL them while sneaking so you can pickpocket them. Be SURE that you are HIDDEN before doing the actual pickpocketing. The second thing to know is that pickpocketing is all about percentages. The item you are sent to get may have a very low percentage of you being successful, so be sure to SAVE first and foremost, and then equip as much “ Deft Hands “ ( + Pickpocket Skill ) gear that you can!

Once you have the item in hand, return to Delvin and let him know. You will be given your cut (400 Gold) and the job is complete.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are well suited for the bitter cold and mountainous terrain which defines the land. Now scarred by civil war, Skyrim faces its darkest days with the return of the legendary dragons and their leader, the World-Eater Alduin. The future of Skyrim and even the lands beyond hangs in the balance, as the people await the prophesized Dragonborn, a hero born with the power of The Voice and the only one who can contend with the dragons. You are that Dragonborn; your task is to investigate why the dragons are returning, and discover a way to defeat them. At the same time, you’re free to explore Skyrim at your own pace, uncovering its many wonders along the way.
