How to make a home made bowfishing kit:
Step 1: Find an old bow you wouldn’t mind using as your ‘fishing bow’.
Step 2.1: To make your own bow fishing arrow, I would recommend selecting an aluminum arrow to avoid carbon splinters as the slide lock slides up and down the shaft of the arrow.
Step 2.3: Buy or make a bowfishing tip. You could reverse modify an expandable broad head, but I would recommend spending the $5.00 on an actual bowfishing arrowhead.
Step 5: Make sure to tie the base of your line to your bolt (firmly scured to your bow) and the tag end of your line tied to your arrow. Just stuff the excess line in you tin can and you are ready to shoot some carp.
