PRIMITIVE FISHING

Have you ever wondered how our ancestors were able to sustain themselves…not only surviving, but actually thriving? Primitive fishing has been one of the cornerstones of how it is done.

In this Workshop, learn

  • how to make a fish spear and techniques of stalking,
  • a way of making a fish net,
  • designing your own hooks and gorges, and
  • a tried-and-true method of “hand fishing” where we can catch and release and have had great success.

This is a real “game changer”–being able to go from nothing and making all of your own fishing lines, spears, gorges, lures, weirs, hooks and traps with all natural materials.

Join us! This class is for participants of all levels–no prerequisite required!
