Rope for a spear
« on: Jan 26, 2017, 08:52 AM »
I just finished making my first spear. I was thinking about using paracord for the rope, does anyone have a reason I shouldn't?   I searched but didn't come up with anything.

Good question, I was thinking the same thing because I want a slightly longer one and I have a ton of para cord.

I use Paracord connected to the spear by way of a taped on ring to dampen noise.

A lot of people measure to the bottom, but always allow for extra and let the pike sit and fight for a bit on the bottom.

Then get ready after pullingthe fish up. I have had pike come in to swim around in the plume of mud. Sometimes multiple pike.

I also use paracord. Been running that way for three or four seasons now with no complaints.

I did end up using paracord but have yet to release the spear.  Glad to hear it works for you.

I use paracord but make sure it is the real thing.
