View Full Version : Bow fishing for Carp

I have just been reading that NSW are starting bow fishing for carp trails on December the 4th and will run the trial for 18months in restricted areas identified as suitable and safe for the trails.
A permit is required to take part in the trails and a course on safety and identification is a requirement.

I'm very interested in these trials as it's quite a sport in the US and anything that removes carp from the rivers and impoundments is a good thing.

Will be interesting to see how it goes. I might have to dig out my 65lb recurve when I head up at Christmas.

I heard about this the other day. Apparently there are a few creeks /rivers around us. Upper Murray area but not in the Murray itself. Pity it isn't in the Hume Weir as the carp in there some mornings seem to fill the surface of the water but if the trial goes well maybe it will expand!
