Fish Spears

Fish spears are used to stab fish while they are still in the water. It can take a lot of patience to utilise this fishing method successfully, as one has to wait rock still for the fish to swim within range.

Another factor complicating this method is that of the refraction angle of an object when it is in the water. Objects in the water appear much closer than they actually are.
