How to Make a Fishing Spear The Primitive Way
This fishing spear is not only a proven way to spear fish, it could help you out as a pretty mean weapon in a pinch!
This primitive spear is fantastic to use when catching fish. The 4 spears in one help secure the fish and aids in removing the fish from the water when it is wriggling about.
This fishing spear is really easy to make and with just a knife, which I hope you all will have… you can make this in 10 minutes with minimal calorie loss.
Being able to fish if in an emergency situation could save your life, fish can be eaten raw and provides a lot of needed calories. If you can get passed the gross factor, the eyes and the brain have the most caloric value 🙂
I have made several of these in the past and they work really well. The only issue I had with mine is that you cant catch the smaller fish. I don’t know if I was doing something wrong but this spear worked wonders with the medium to large fish. Have a lot of patience too, this takes practice.
Check out this really good tutorial on how to make a fishing spear and remember if you make this strong enough you may be able to use this to catch snakes and small game too.
