Fishing with a spear is a technique used by cultures worldwide, for about all of recorded history.
Ancient Native American cultures, for example, deployed teams to push fish into shallows into traps or spear fishermen who eagerly awaited spearing them in the shallows.
Spearing fish is an easy way to catch fish in virtually any environment, even in colder conditions as long as you can gain access to fish be they lurking near the shore or near the surface of your fishing pond, lake, stream or river.
In a survival situation, you may not have access your fishing gear and even if you are experienced spear-fishing, the spear you usually use.
That makes being able to fashion a fishing spear from scratch critical to your success.
