Practice to achieve proficiency

Rantings of a life-long trainer Let’s face it, being a competent and confident diver is (or should be) important to us. We want to have the skill sets, the abilities and the experiences that go with all of these, right? I started spearfishing when an entry level pole spear was a wooden dowel and surgical tubing….ok, maybe not that long ago, but that is what I could afford. Life came along. Jobs, family, more jobs and more family and the next thing you know its many years later. Some of you reading this are nodding your head, others are...

FISHING FOR THE FUTURE

By Andrew Miller and Eric Keener My first time spearfishing unfolded the same way a lot of firsts seem to: wide-eyed, eager and woefully under-lubricated. I pushed out of my comfort zone and surrendered to the unknown. In this case, that unknown was the murky, green, 53-degree water of Pacific Grove, California, and the supposedly tasty things that live within it. I say “supposedly” tasty because until that point, I had hardly ever handled—let alone cooked—a fish. Sure, I’d seen a few videos about how to take off a fillet.

Gear Review: KOAH Spear Kaddy

This piece of equipment really got my attention over a year ago as master gun builder John Ippolito detailed his plan to build an all in one “Gun rack” that could hold four guns, both reef and blue-water, four sets of fins, gloves four masks, as well as, multiple spare shafts. I’ll be honest, as John continued to pile equipment to the list of what this “idea” for a gun rack would hold, I had my doubts. Lets be real, thats a ton of gear and he wanted to make it light AND totally removable. I had high hopes;...
