Bowfishing has been growing in popularity in recent years as more beginning archers look for fun shooting opportunities for spring and summer. As with almost everything in archery, you can get into bowfishing at nearly any price point you choose. For basic equipment, some archers simply buy a kit that includes:

  1. One solid-fiberglass fishing arrow
  2. Fishing points
  3. A spool with heavy Dacron line
  4. An arrow rest

Some bowfishermen transfer all the equipment back and forth to their regular hunting bow, or buy a new bow for hunting and put their bowfishing gear on the old bow. Regardless of what you choose to do, any archery shop can guide you into the right product whether you’re just starting out or looking to upgrade your equipment.
