Interview with Robert Schmaus

Todays interview is with Robert Schmaus, a spearfishing FROTHER and guide currently based in Panama! If you wanted to plan a spearfishing holiday to somewhere maybe not as well known as other places, Panama seems to be the PERFECT option! Surrounded by 2 different oceans, thousands of islands, unbelievably productive topography and good fishing all year round, this seems like the ideal spearfishing destination! Robert has also written several books on spearfishing and is a wealth of knowledge. Listen to 5 minutes of him talk about spearfishing in Panama and you’ll be booking your trip there in no time! Check out Robert’s books here!
