Fishing Using Bow and Arrow

Bow fishing using special archery equipment was once common in Kumarakom and the Kuttanad areas. The bow has a reel fixed to it, which in turn is connected to the arrow with a line. Once the fish is shot with the pointed arrow, the archer pulls the line and arrow using the reel and takes his catch. The arrows used were heavy as they were made of iron; the line was of nylon.
