101 Dry Training for Spearfishing + Cris Dillon Spearjunkies Update
This epiode is a bit different. The first 30 minutes are all about improving your breath-hold using dry training. The second half of the show is a Cris Dillon Spearjunkies Update. These guys are travelling the world seeking 12 species that many of us can only dream about encountering. If you have trouble getting in the water at least a few times a week, then you will take some practical information out of the dry training section to improve your breath-hold. We can all do with more stoke factor and Cris from the Spearjunkies crew never fails to deliver with his stories, this time from adventures in Madagascar and Panama. Listen in!

My first doggie. These fish really earn your respect and fight to the death with unbelievable strength. This beauty was shot at 25m and luckily I stoned the fish so sharks did not get a snack and my spear did not get bent. Thanks to @coatesmans for putting us on the fish🙏.
