Interview with Ole Johannes Duerlolimi and Gil Orr
Arctic Spearfishing Norway
‘Big laughs, huge Halibut and ginormous tips for coldwater spearfishing’ pretty much sums up this interview. Gil and Ole from Arctic Spearfishing were a tonne of fun and I really enjoyed this chat. The couple live in the North of Norway and dive pristine waters chasing amazing critters like Lumpsucker, King Crabs and Wolf-Fish.

Special Shoutouts: Ole “Axel Schuller is the guy I started spearing with and he’s also the most active person in the Arctic Spearfishing business. As well as him, Sebastian Siwam Wada and Joel Burman are also a critical part of the crew.”
