CLAIMS:

1 . A spear for spearing fish including:

an elongate spear shaft having a proximal end and a distal end defining a sharpened spear tip, the spear shaft defining a longitudinal axis between the proximal and distal ends, and having a spear locating formation disposed at a location near the spear tip and spaced therefrom; and

a toggle removably located on the spear shaft near the spear tip thereof, the toggle having a toggle body defining a channel within which the spear shaft is received in a snug fit, the toggle body defining a toggle locating formation configured for releasable engagement with the spear locating formation when the toggle is located on the spear shaft, the toggle body having an elongate configuration and defining leading and trailing ends relatively closer to the distal and proximal ends of the spear shaft, respectively, when the toggle body is located on the spear shaft.

2. The spear as claimed in claim 1 , wherein the toggle body is thin-walled and configured so as to conform to the profile of the spear shaft.

3. The spear as claimed in claim 2, wherein the toggle body comprises a pair of spaced side wall sections and an operative upper bridging wall section which extends between the side wall sections and which abuts an operative upper side of the spear shaft.

4. The spear as claimed in claim 3, wherein the spear locating formation comprises a locating pin projecting from the spear shaft and wherein the toggle locating formation comprises a complementary locating aperture defined in the bridging wall section of the toggle body for receiving the locating pin therein.

5. The spear as claimed in claim 4, wherein the locating aperture of the toggle body is in the form of an elongate slot extending in a direction along a longitudinal axis defined between the leading and trailing end of the toggle body.

6. The spear as claimed in claim 5, wherein the locating slot of the toggle body is located at a position of the toggle body relatively closer to the leading end of the toggle body.

7. The spear as claimed in any one of claims 3 to 6, wherein the spear shaft includes an abutment formation near the spear tip configured for abutment with the leading end of the toggle body.

8. The spear as claimed in claim 7, wherein the abutment formation of the spear shaft comprises a pair of stop pin formations which each extend radially outwardly from opposite sides of the spear shaft.

9. The spear as claimed in claim 8, wherein the toggle body defines a pair of abutment faces at the leading end thereof configured for abutment with the stop pin formations.

10. The spear as claimed in any one of claims 3 to 9, wherein each side wall section of the toggle body defines a particular one of the abutment faces, each abutment face being angled such that an operative lower end of the abutment face is relatively closer to the spear tip than an operative upper end thereof when the toggle body is located on the spear shaft.

1 1 . The spear as claimed in any of claims 1 to 10, the spear includes an attachment cord for attaching the toggle to the spear shaft.

12. The spear as claimed in claim 1 1 , wherein the toggle and the spear shaft define complementary cord attachment apertures which are in register when the toggle is located on the spear shaft, through which the attachment cord passes, in use, for attaching the attachment cord to the spear shaft and the toggle.

13. The spear as claimed in claim 12, wherein the spear shaft and the toggle each define a pair of the cord attachment apertures thereby permitting the cord to be looped through the toggle and the spear shaft when attaching the cord to the toggle and the spear shaft.

14. The spear as claimed in any one of claims 1 to 13, which includes a releasable retaining band which is located around the toggle and the spear shaft near the trailing end of the toggle body for releasably holding the toggle body on the spear shaft.

15. The spear as claimed in claim 14, wherein the retaining band is in the form of an elastic band.
