About Noob Spearo


About the Noob Spearo

My name is Isaac ‘Shrek’ Daly and along with the Noob Spearo team, we create a spearfishing podcast that’s making a difference.

The Noob Spearo Podcast is a show for anyone interested in the extremely cool (and challenging) pursuit of spearfishing. Basically spearfishing is holding your breath, diving down and trying to outwit tasty fish to feed your family.


Spearfishing has a tough learning curve.

Things like equipment, learning to hold and improve your breath-hold, equalizing, finding people and places to go, hunting techniques, etiquette, ethics, safety, first aid and overcoming fear of dark/dirty water are just a handful of them.


On the show we make an effort to chase down and interview spearfishing experts and authorities from around the world who share their stories, insights and wisdom to help our listeners become better spearos.

These interviews (145+) are available for free on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Castbox | Google Podcasts | Stitcher | Podbean. Listen & subscribe!

What Noobers Are Saying

“Hey mate just want to say a big thank you. Don’t know if you would remember me, it was about this time a year ago I met you in Adreno spearfishing Brisbane. I went in there as green as any first time spearfisherman could be. You struck up a conversation with me at the counter while I was waiting to pay for a new wetsuit.

I remember just before I left to exit the store I asked you if you have any tips for a greeny and that’s when you handed me a hard copy of 99 tips to get better at spearfishing and told me you had a spearing podcast. I have truly lived, breathed and ate spearfishing the last year and it has gone from a “maybe should try one day activity” to a lifestyle. Your podcast has replaced any noise that comes out of any speaker at home, car, work radio and even in the ear pods while working in a switchboard and that book you might as well name it the bible to spearfishing as it doesn’t leave the side of the bed.

Fortune enough to have a house on the coast in Bargara where a 5min walk and swim down the road to the local beach will provide a reef species play ground. I am moving back to Brisbane for work in June and have every intention to join the bull sharks. Thanks again mate I couldn’t recommend your content enough” – Brandon

“Hi Isaac, just wanted to say thanks for all the time you and Levi put into what you have created.  I found it as I just got into the sport.  I’m so new I only have fins, mask/snorkel, wetsuit and weight belt. Before I buy a speargun, as you and all of your guests have stated, take a course. My freedive course is this weekend ( would have been over a month ago but delayed due to Covid.)
But it’s a weird, small world. I started back at episode 1 and listened thru and heard you interview my patient, Dan Walsh. I replaced his knees. Although I knew he was into diving I didn’t realize what a legend he was.  I spoke to him the other day and he is doing well. Privacy reasons I didn’t want to post this publicly.  But I’ll be sure to leave a review online. 
As I listen I pick up great advice like Rob Allen talking about swimming toward your flasher if the fish is swimming away and the breath up by Chris Dillon.  Is that the stuff in 99 tips? Jus bought the book and supporting the cause.
Thanks again and stay safe,”

“Shrek, I’m still alive today because of your interviews on spearfishing.
Keep up the good work, it’s profound how your getting the worlds best Spearo’s together and organizing this content. Noob Spearo podcast is a life saver for me on many levels. 
Listening to epic fishing stories “grounds me” in this materialistic world and helps me focus on hunting, which brings endless joy. No Shout Out bro, just letting you know how important your Podcast is for the global Spearo community. Thanks for your hard work.”
