Interview with Taylor Slattery

This interview with Taylor Slattery was recorded on Day 1 of a charter to the Southern Great Reef aboard the Eastern Voyager. Taylor has been a part of the Adreno spearfishing team for years and has speared all over Australia. In this interview we get systematic on a single drop. This is a mental blueprint for getting the most out of each dive and maximising your time on the bottom hunting fish. Cool dude, cool chat!
