Fishing with a blowgun

https://www.persee.fr/doc/befeo_0336-1519_1938_num_38_1_4722

This link is in French but we can read that Indonesians used a blowgun for fishing.
With a blowgun, hook and float are launched. Number 5.
When the fish bites, the hook separates from the float. Number 4.
In page 215 : the text
And in page 254.c : 2 drawings, number 4 and 5.

From your drawing it seems like it is of the "telescope" type of construction, that is, it is made from bamboo internodes put inside larger internodes.
It also seems kinda short but also wide.

Does the paper comment on any of this?

The text speaks of hollow wood without specifying the nature of the wood.
According to the text, the blowgun is bamboo or copper.

Yes, modern version with a reel.

In the texte, it's a gaffe (a hook).
With the same technic, blowgun and gaffe, they hunted also mule like the video.

I hope I'm clear.
