    Spearfishing

    It was suggested that I start a spearfishing thread so here it is.

    I will post a couple of photos of some memorable fish over the last few years and will attempt to keep the thread updated when I dive. If anyone else is out there smashing fish on breath-hold please feel free to chip in and share a yarn or some pics.

    Also happy to do Q and A if there's anything people want to know - I don't claim to be an expert but I've been doing it for about 14 years now and have learned a few things from some pretty legendary people along the way.

    This one is special for two reasons... he's a shade over 20lb and I'm standing less than 50m from where I proposed to my wife.
