Arrows predate all recorded history and were common to most cultures which means they have been made for many centuries using only organic materials. It is archery itself and the choice of materials and craft techniques used that interested me in having a go at fletching (arrow making). My experience is extremely limited as this is the first set of arrows I have attempted to make from scratch. A bit of research soon told me that there was a lot more to it that one would expect, I decided to dispense with the finer technicalities and concentrate on just the basic principles.
