If you are new to Bowfishing, or are curious as to exactly what it is that we do, Wikipedia describes the definition as such; "Bowfishing is a method of fishing that uses specialized archery equipment to shoot and retrieve fish. Fish are shot with a barbed arrow that is attached with special line to a reel mounted on the bow". Now by definition, that does explain the basics of Bowfishing, but booking a trip with us is so much more than just that!
