Interview with Emma & Marcus Lincoln-Smith

Todays interview is with Emma & Marcus Lincoln-Smith, father and daughter spearfishing duo and founder of ocean themed apparel company Ocean Ranger from Sydney! Growing up on and around the ocean has inspired a way of life many dream of! Marcus, being a marine biologist with several published papers, has a unique and fascinating insight into the underwater world and how spearfishing interacts with it. His love for the ocean clearly shines through in Emma, an Olympic Skeleton Bobsleigh champion that froths just as hard on spearing! Together they team up to go hunt fish and have collected some awesome stories from their times out in the water. Learn why Mulloway are their favourite fish to hunt, how to target Kingies in Sydney and where to shoot Dolphin Fish/Mahi Mahi/Dorado! Also, hear about the time they had a run in with a huge Great White! Loads of great stories and info in this one, we hope you enjoy!
