One of my all time favorite pass times in Jamaica was spear fishing. For the people who don’t know what that is it’s simply when you have a gun and you shoot fish. That’s the simple way of putting it but you know a good thing about doing it in Jamaica is that there are many places where you can do it. That is because there are many rivers in Jamaica and you can make equipment to go hunting for the fish very simply. Now you might think that it is overly difficult to go in the river and shoot a fish but it’s rather simple. First all you have to do is gun a spear gun, find a river and go shoot fish.

I happen to remember the gun a few friends and I built from a carved wood, a few nails and a medical tube. Those medical tubes were hard to come buy but they were incredibly strong flexible and were used for all our builds. The procedure to build these guns was simple and needed basic wood cutting skills.

Now the best time to go is during the summer when the water is nice and warm and also the rivers are as clear as the sea. I would definitely suggest going to ST Elizabeth for spear fishing also as there is one main river called Black River (not to be confused with the city/town) of black river.  There is sure to be joy for all who decide to take the trip to Jamaica and whom decide that spear fishing is something they would want to do there.
