a bowhunter and a walker man! you have a great looking dog there. i hunt a walker out of the banjoe dog....also run a couple curs and a feist.
a closefaced spincast reel will work great with some fastflight line, [200 lbs.] you can get a shakespear synergy, the big one, at wallmart, and the reel mount and line at www.sullysbowfishing.com ask for lance, hes a good guy. thats the set up i use. dont try using a spinning, or baitcasting reel, or mono. those reels could be dangerous when shooting an arrow, and the mono will break.

well....a reel mount and an arrow...your all set! you can use a mount that screws in the stalilizer hole, or a side mount in the site mounting holes. and the line, then your all ready to hunt down some fish!

Double the end of your line over, then tie a half hitch about a 1/2 inch from the end. that should leave a loop at the end of your string. Then thread it through the hole near your knock. After you thread it through, then put the knock throuh the loop then pull tight. It won't come untied thay way, and it is easy to take your arrow off the string once you are finished fishing.
