How to make a fishing spear

Fish made up a significant part of hunter gatherer diets in northern Europe, according to this study.  They might have caught those fish on a hook, similar to the ones we make on our Primitive Fishing Kits course, or with a net, a trap or a fishing spear.

In this video I show you how to make a fishing spear, it’s straightforward and quick to do.  Remember that you can’t use these in fresh water in the UK.

We teach how to make a fishing spear on our5 Day IOL Bushcraft Competency Diploma course.

You can see loads of photos from that course, as well as all the rest of the fantastic courses that we run, on our Facebook page.
