6 x UK spearfishing champion Kevin Daly joins us for a cracker chat about everything from competition strategy to maintaining ear health over prolonged days diving. We discuss spearfishing world competitions in multiple locations including last years competition in Greece. Kevin is also the former world record (current South African record holder) for Spanish (King) Mackerel. Its a great story as he shot the fish and then carried on diving for crayfish, hanging the huge behemoth from his float! Kevin’s been spearfishing in many locations including the U.K, South Africa, Australia, Europe, Venezuela, Croatia, and more. Listen into a chat with a true veteran of the sport!
