Welcome to Bowfishing Donkey!

Welcome to Bowfishing Donkey, where every shot tells a story, and each catch holds a memory. I’m James Bass (my pseudonym), and I am more than just an avid fisherman – a storyteller, a nature enthusiast, and your guide around, about, and through the enchanting fishing world.

As young men growing up in Virginia, we constantly fished- river, lake, pond, bow, boating, wading, bridging, or bank fishing. And when we’d get a big one, we’d call that a Donkey! Now you know why I called this site Bowfishing Donkey.

My Journey with the Bow and Arrow

My passion for bow fishing ignited in the serene, whispering waters of Southwest Virginia, where, as a young enthusiast, I experienced the electrifying rush of striking a fish with my arrow. Those early mornings by the water, under the gentle light of dawn, were not just about the hunt; they were about immersing myself in nature, syncing with its rhythms, and mastering the arts of precision and timing.

As the years passed, my bow fishing adventures expanded from the familiar creeks of Yellow Breaches to the expansive, wild blue of Smith Mountain Lake. The places where I aimed my arrow became integral to my story. Whether I was targeting the resilient smallmouth bass or skillfully aiming for rainbow trout, each venture honed my abilities and fortified my bond with bow fishing.

A Life Built Around Bow and Arrow

In the last 40 years, I’ve delved deep into the realm of bow fishing. My journey has led me to various continents, exploring a myriad of water bodies and challenging myself against numerous fish species. Each expedition has been a lesson in the craft of bow fishing and the critical importance of aquatic conservation.
