John (a good friend of mine) and I where talking in December of ’10, trying to decide on what activity we should take up in the new year. For some reason spearfishing came up and we decided to do some research on the subject.
Got on youtube, searched for ‘spearfishing’ and started watching some clips, well…we were hooked, this was the sport/activity we were looking for.
We were hungry for knowledge and scoured the interwebs for more on the subject, thankfully we came across a local, and very busy, spearfishing forum called Sealine and there we met people, people that have now become friends and advisors, dive buddies and comrades of the deep. We also met Eckart (the man that supplies us with everything we need to continue this addiction).
It took a while for us actually to get into the water, having to buy all the equipment, getting the permits and finding out where we could actually go and hunt fishes. But a few days later and a few thousand rand spend we were wet and stalking fish :)
This is just a blog about my spearfishing adventures. Enjoy!
