The reality of using a hand spear to catch fish vs building simple fish traps.Did you know that hand spears are only good when you have surface, slow swimming, large fish species to catch. Deeper faster swimming species can avoid hand thrown hand spears most times as the fish will detect the sound of the spear moving into the water and escape. In this video I also show the reality of using a spear and the consequences of missing your target.
I’ll show you how to build a simple fish trap which requires no bait at all to work. Understanding the behaviour of your quarry is a paramount skill for all sorts of hunting and fishing.
Like all forms of hunting silence is golden if you want to catch anything. Hunting and fishing is not a random process.
