The Twisted Fletch
Another morning finds me out on the grasslands with my bow and arrow, although on this morning I am using Flu Flu arrows equipped with twisted fletching, ensuring short arrow travel.
Flu Flu arrows are specialized for taking down targets on the wing.
I f you expand the photo, and look closer at the arrow that I am about to release, you will notice that the fletching is much larger than on my normal arrows. Also, you will notice the special tip that consists of a blunt end with 4 wire loops forming a frontal area measuring about 3" in diameter.
This Flu Flu arrow will only travel about 30 yards before plummeting to the ground, due to the twisted fletching adding huge wind resistance to the arrow.
The flight characteristics of a Flu Flu arrow along with the wire bird point, makes it the perfect choice for taking gamebirds such as pheasants, or grey partridge in the air.
Of course this only happens during the Upland game bird season, and with a gamebird licence in your possession.
