    Making an Arrow

    Hi guys

    I'm having a bash at making an arrow for a survival bow and wonder if any of you could help with some advice?

    I have all the stuff I need it is mainly putting the flights on where I get a bit stuck they always look a mess so if anyone can say of any good ways to secure them on there or the best length and stuff that would be great

    I will put some pics on later at my attempt

    Cheers Ben

    Keep us posted in this one please mate.

    I tried doing the Ray Mears arrow with bluebell bulbs and goose feathers a few years back with zero success.

    To be honest it looked like something that my little girl could have knocked up when she was at nursery 7 years ago!!

    Good luck and let's have some pics.

    put it on by tacking with pine pitch then wrap between the filaments with thread,or sinew if you want to be traditional.
