SA spearo taken

Rumour has it that some FFF members are spearos. It's time to come out of the closet.

Gee thats a long time to release the inquest findings. Must be some reason for the delay?

I rarely ever thought about sharks when i was diving. except for when i did a specific shark dive at the pinnacles off Forster NSW.

Mates of mine who spear fished often had hassles with them, not hard to guess why, struggling / bleeding fish nearby

Was always in the back of my mind in SA. They have some cracker rays down there too, the smooth rays are huge.

just on a side issue, they tell us that the hooks rust out in a few days. cr.p!
try it for yourself
put a hook is really salty water and see how long it takes to rust out. it takes months
