When you spearfish as a team, it is more fun and more comfortable because you will teach each other and protect one another. Planning will help you to bring all the tools that you need so that you do not get to the fishing spot and get discouraged when you remember the tools you have forgotten. You will need fins, gloves, fin socks, wetsuit, first aid kit, mask and snorkel, float line, and float, knife, a spear gun, shaft, and line, weights, belt and extra gear. Are wondering what type of a spear gun you should carry? You have a variety of spearguns to select from. Have you ever heard about a pneumatic speargun and what should you know about it?
The first pneumatic speargun was made in the 1950s. It is a favorite spearfishing gun for many fishermen. The gun has to be “primed’ before it is used under the water. Fill the sealed chamber with air using a hand pump. Special valves prevent the air from leaving so that the gun can release several shots under the water before there is a need to refill the air.
Accident firing is prevented by the safety catch to avoid disasters. You should force the tough steel shaft into the barrel until the firing mechanism gets into the right position when you get under the water. Ensure that the safety catch is off before you pull the trigger to release the piston.
They are reliable, powerful and compact guns. Most of the pneumatic speargun models have a ‘Hi-Lo’ power actuator that allows you to adjust to low power when shooting at a close range and high power at a long-range. You need more physical strength to handle a larger pneumatic speargun than a smaller one.
These guns also have their challenges which you should know. These guns not only require regular servicing and maintenance but they are also noisy hence they can scare away your prey. You will need time to get used to aiming using the gun, but once you are used to it, the gun will be able to make accurate aims.
Sea creatures avoid danger by determining it using body language hence you need to up your game by approaching the fish skillfully in a way that they will not interpret your body language as danger. You will learn to be disciplined, patient and an observer so that you master the art of moving and behaving like a fish beneath the water. Spearfishing is not the time to meditate about the many problems that you have been facing lately but a moment of finding happiness in the small things that you are doing.
