Interview with Sven Franklin

 

This interview we head down to the hipster capitol of Australia Melbourne to chat with Sven Franklin. We chat all about Club Spearfish, a local Melbourne spearfishing club where they have a great culture and some pretty cool meetups. Sven also gives us a good overview of Melbourne spearfishing species and areas to go as well as some idea about weather and conditions which is always helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed this chat and Sven reinforced several huge factors for improving your spearfishing such as the importance of hydration, being a good buddy and staying grateful. Listen in!

Mentioned in the show was this article by Sven called What I Learned In My First Year Spearfishing – check it out:)
