Fred Bear might be one of the most famous bowhunters of all time, but few people have seen footage of him bowfishing.

This rare clip shows Bear testing out some of his bowsfishing equipment in the Florida Keys. Notice how the equipment has changed and become more specialized over the years. Instead of having a reel attached to the bow itself, Fred attaches the line to a traditional reel.

Also featured in this video is the famous footage of Fred Bear hunting for pheasant with a bow and arrow. All of this really stands as a testament to one of the fathers of modern bowhunting.
