How to make a harpoon at home. Harpoon for fishing.

Harpoon for fishing: varietiesTip harpoons are of two types: removable or solid. The first type is universal, it is easy to change it depending on the type of prey and its weight, dimensions, and also in the case of deformation during fishing. The second type is a single unit with the base of the harpoon, is considered more reliable than removable.

Depending on how the harpoon snapping is made, the following types can be distinguished:

  • Snap Front
  • Snap front to sleeve with slip
  • Snap behind the sleeve with slip

Snap front is easy to manufacture, holds the fish well, easily shooting through it. But with this method of binding, it is harder to get into the fish from a long distance, the arrow may get stuck in the trunk or break at the place of binding. The second type has the advantage of a longer fishing line, necessary for hunting at a long distance, as well as independence of the tench from the harpoon. But, this type is difficult to make independently, its design is more complex. In addition, the prey is difficult to hit on the flight and hold it. The harpoon with attachment behind the sleeve with a slide is simple to manufacture, and the tench does not affect it. The disadvantages of this type are: difficulties with replacing the line, loosening the boom hole, the impossibility of defeating production through.

How to make a harpoon at home

At home, it is easy to make a spear harpoon, which will consist of a handle and a tip. Before you start making a harpoon, you need to prepare the following materials:

  • Wooden stick
  • Polypropylene pipe section
  • Bandage martens
  • Medium sized nails
  • A thread
  • Large nut
  • Vice
  • Sandpaper, file
  • Hacksaw
  • Insulating tape

At home, it is easy to make a spear harpoon, which will consist of a handle and a tip. Before you start making a harpoon, you need to prepare the following materials:

  • Polypropylene pipe section
  • Bandage martens
  • Medium sized nails
  • A thread
  • Large nut
  • Vice
  • Sandpaper, file
  • Hacksaw
  • Insulating tape

First, the harpoon itself is made. For this, the nut is placed in a vice. At the same time, a wooden bar is put on the drill. Using medium speed, the bar is inserted into the nut and scrolls through it, achieving a round shape. Then, also, turning the drill, the bar is polished with sandpaper. Then you need to take the nails (3 pieces), saw off their heads with a hacksaw, and sharpen both ends of each nail with a file so that they are sharp. The end of the bar is wound with electrical tape, nails are attached to it in turn with a strong fishing thread. After they are tied with a thread, small wooden sticks must be inserted between them and the stick so that the nails take a position at an angle. The gap between the nail and the bar for strength is filled with glue. It remains to wind the place of fastening nails with tape, and a tool for underwater fishing is ready.

Next, you need to make the main part to start the harpoon. To do this, from the bandage of martens (or rubber cord) you need to cut a small piece, and attach to the cut of the polypropylene pipe from both sides. This can be done with glue. On top of this part, as well as the place of contact of the harpoon with the bandage, is wrapped with several layers of electrical tape. The device is almost ready, it remains to attach the harpoon with a fishing line or fishing string to the launch device to keep the prey.

Methods of making a harpoon as a projectile for a gun

If we consider the harpoon not as an independent weapon, but as a projectile for an underwater crossbow, then its design will not differ from the one described above (shaft, tip, rope for attachment to the crossbow). The difference from a handgun is that the rope is wound on a reel, and after a shot is easily unwound. To keep the harpoon on the trajectory of motion on it is often the plumage.

Similar to a manual harpoon, in this case the shaft is made of lightweight, durable material. A thin branch, hardened by fire. If the tip is non-removable, it is necessary to use solid steel. It is turned on a lathe from a steel bar. If there is no such possibility, make to order. When designing a harpoon with a removable tip, the main part is made of wood, as mentioned above, or of metal. The tip is formed from a thick wire (4-5mm), bent at a right angle. It consists of several parts, one of which is made flat using a press and attached to the axis with a rope or plunge. In the manufacture of removable tip type, it is desirable to make several pieces at once for their future replacement. They must have threads of a certain diameter and pitch, which are present on the axis.
