I used to shoot Carp in this old pond I know of when they went on spawn but I don't eat them (who eats Carp?) and I'm not into killing something unless I plan on eating it.

Fishing using archery equipment. The Bow's have a reel on them with line attached to the arrow so you can reel the fish back in.

Seem's like it'd be fun, never done it though. Not even sure if it's legal here in the mitt.
