Question for you spearos from down under, What in the world is a gidgee? A sheila from down undah was telling me about this device and was befuddled of her description. Does anyone of you Aussies have a picture of it? :duh

Hope this helps

It is a hand spear(sling) with a pranger(5 prong) head on it.

They are ok for close stuff but obviosly limited by the length of the pole:D ! you know what I mean!!

Hope this helped

so...the longer and the stiffer the gidgee...the more "fish" it gets.:D
LOL rofl

just make sure you have a tight grip on your rubber and don't let it shoot to soon:D !!!;)
