KILL SWORDFISH WITH BOW AND ARROW (Oct, 1933)
KILL SWORDFISH WITH BOW AND ARROW
Hunting the swordfish with bow and arrow, thus combining the skill of archer and angler, is a thrilling new sport introduced by Long Island, N. Y., fishermen. The arrow, which takes the place of a harpoon, is heavily barbed and carries a stout line. Standing on a plank projecting from the bow, the archer lets fly when he sights the fins of a sword-fish. If he makes a successful strike, the angler reels the fish in, after a struggle with rod and line.
