Traditional English Longbows
« on: January 23, 2007, 12:10:00 AM »
Can anyone recomend a bowyer who specializes in tradional english longbows?  I'm not sure if I want to go for a selfbow or a bow laminated with a variety of woods.  I am looking for a bow greater than 70".

Try Pacific Yew Longbows.  Jay St. Charles makes them.  Very nice bows!

I find the older I get, the less I used to know!
