Welcome to my instructable on extreme creek fishing,...Or for lack of a better description,the" I can't sit still long enough to fish the normal way, (with bait) instructable." I hope you enjoy my efforts to show you how to "hunt for fish".
As always, I welcome comments, both good and bad.
As an avid hunter, I own two compounds and a recurve bow. I use the compounds for deer hunting quite often and did not want to alter either one. This made my recurve the prime target when the urge hit me to get back into bow fishing. Not wanting to damage my recurve any, I decided to make my fishing setup attachable without any drilling.As a result,"Bobby's back woods bow fishing kit"was born.
sad foot note;As much as i wish to claim "i invented this",i cannot,after assembly and testing i thought to search the web and found i had been beaten by others, the bucket idea had already been used. After a brief moment of sadness i said "oh well,at least i have not seen it on instructables yet" hence, Bobby's backwoods bow fishing kit is born.
Step 1: Materials Needed
I will not specify any tools used as I believe that everyone will use whatever they have available to work with.
But as for an items needed list, we will start with:
#1 a bow,compound or recurve,it is your choice
#2 a bucket,it can be a bottle,coffee container or in my case a five gallon bucket
#3 hose clamps, or duct tape once again you decide from what you have available
#4 strong string,i had mason string so that is what i chose
#6 a few bolts and nuts,washers if you want
Now on to the beginning stages of assembly.
Total cost is my favorite part of this instructable as everything used was salvaged from previous projects and no longer in use for said projects.........Total cost........$ 0.00 $.
Total benifits,exercise,improved aim and skill with bow,(some fish dont give you much time to shoot), and food for the table( I only hunt what i can eat )
