Rob Gates Featured interview
Beginning his spearfishing journey many years ago in the fresh waters of Zimbabwe’s Lake Kariba gave us ample excuse to dub Rob Gates, the ‘Freshwater Assassin’. This interview with Rob opened both Turbo’s and my eyes to the often misunderstood nature of freshwater spearfishing. Being snobby Australian and Kiwi spearo’s respectively we thought that freshwater spearfishing lacked in both challenge and an array of tasty species to chase – we discovered (as quite often is the case) that we were both wrong. From Crocodile attacks to Electric species and over 100 potential species in Lake Kariba alone, this chat with Rob was a memorable and enjoyable interview. Tune in and have your perspective changed and learn what skills are transferable, from fresh to salt water spearfishing.
