What’s the best way to make a fishing spear?
The trick on how to make a fishing spearhead is trial and error. They are quick to make and last a long time. My favorite hand spear is the MAKO Spearguns as shown above. Multi barbs just increase the probability of striking a fish. To increase the odds of hitting a fish I like to berley them up with bread or fish pellets.
What’s the best way to secure a spearhead?
You can secure the spearhead with a short nail or a pin. Alternatively, you may simply use glue or epoxy if you do not have access to a drill. If there are multiple holes in the spearhead socket, make sure you drill straight through the haft, otherwise the pin or nail will be out of alignment with the socket holes.
What are the different types of fishing spears?
There are two main designs of fishing spears, single barb and multi barb head spears. These can be made out of metal or wood depending on the materials available. Each will target a different type of fish, and in this post, we will teach you how to make both.
How big do you cut a sapling to make a spear?
Choose a tall, straight sapling, about two inches in diameter. I start by creating a pressure cut around the perimeter of the tree with my knife. There is no carving involved in this technique. You are simply applying heavy pressure while rotating the knife around the wood.
