Dolphin style fluke or fin for man

Is it possible to catch a fish with your hands in open water????
In my dreams very definately so, but I have been accused of having an overly active imagination.

Go have a look at this article - it tells of a very efficient fin that may allow the futute spearo to replace his speargun with his bare hands. The blades are not rigid allowing for better power transfer and this fin can propell a person up to 11 miles per hour which is rather fast.

For a report see:

See it in action...





Then fantasise...
