Interview with Bert, Joel and Rory!

Today’s interview is with Bert and Joel as we round off our WA trip. More great fish but this time with a lot more sharks! We had such a good day out spearing, everyone landing great fish and Joel and Shrek checking off new and target species. They put some new Old Man Blue gear to the test, trying out their impressive new prototype weight vest! Some sad and scary stories of knots letting you down, getting taxed and hurting some innocent gear. What a great trip with Joel, Bert and Rory! Will they ever find the lube?? Have a listen to find out! Also, a massive thanks to @Deryck.Gyotaku for his amazing print of Shrek’s Baldchin Groper!
