THE SPEAR Fishing Podcast Ep 014 Transcript
Welcome to the spear, the spear fishing podcast where spearos share stories, insights and tips to help you and your spearfishing journey. Welcome to the tribe and now your host, Roman Castro from spearoblog.com
RC: Today’s episode is brought to by me if you would like to hear less Ad or no ads there is something you can do. I started a Patreon campaign where listeners can pledge as little as $1 per episode to help me fund the show and take it to the next level. So, do me a favor and visit SpearoBlog.com/give you don’t have to pledge if you can’t at the moment but at least go check it out.
Today I interviewed a freediver, who doesn’t hunt and in fact she doesn’t eat meat. You might be thinking “but this is spearfishing show” and yeah it is, but I believe that in order to become a great spearo you must first become a great freediver. So, who better to interview than a freediver that practices freediving exclusively without any distractions of the spear or the hunt? But before we go to the interview here are the spear community announcements.
We have the Jack Prodanovich White Seabass open coming up May 29th through May 31st firstname.lastname@example.org, we also have the Kirk McNulty White Seabass Classic it’s actually still going on now through May 30th the info for that is at hookbuzz.com. We have the OC Classic spearfishing tournament run by the OC Spearos and that is going on August 15th the info is at OCSpearos.org, click on the events tab and then finally we have the San Diego Freedivers which is my club, the club I belonged to.
