will chuck pics up tonight but i'll try explaining it. It's a broom handle with a slight notch carved in it and a hole drilled. the spear tip is a single prong with a 90 degree bend in it that slots into the hole when the prong is in the notch. Just wanting to put some binding around it to secure it a bit better.

I used thin copper wire for the exact same job as yours...works a treat.

You can get a Otter brand 304 stainless steel wire, I have a couple of bails of it very strong stuff - that would be better with the steel on the spear head...

It will be easier with the pics but with spear making, metal wire seems to be the go.

Its strengthens the shaft around the impact zone. There are some video's where you drill a hole down the middle of a wooden shaft. In goes the spear head, then they wrap tightly with fencing wire a fair way down the shaft. Then they bang a nail next to the shaft of the spear head to tighten it all up.

Due to the impact of driving the spear into rock while spearing fish, and that they throw the spear - everything has to be symmetrical and strong so the spear handle doesnt shatter near the tip.




Or you can cut notches in the side of the spear shaft like this video

That appears to be the work of a true innovator. One who was told it couldnt be done and did it anyway. Hats off to him - who ever he is

Its blokes like that, that give me the inspiration to try new things

I'm loving the BFL vids. There should be more of them.

That was a fair distance you rode to get to that spot...!
