Spearfishing is a popular and well established sport worldwide and has been growing in popularity in the UK every year. In the South West we have some great spearfishing spots, here in Falmouth we have some nice sheltered spots for the beginner.
HOW TO GET STARTED
Spearfishing is carried out with only a snorkel and not with the assistance of underwater breathing apparatus. Having learnt to snorkel and to hold your breath for a minimum of 30 seconds underwater, you should be able to proceed to basic Spearfishing techniques.
Here at Cornwall Divers
we have a comprehensive range of spearfishing and snorkeling equipment from well known experts like Cressi and Mares all at competitive prices.
Buying good quality equipment will not only save money in the long run, but is also likely to bring success that much more quickly.
Essential equipment would be
MASK, FINS, SNORKEL,NWETSUIT, WEIGHTBELT, SPEARGUN, FLOAT, KNIFE and FISHKEEP;
'extras' would include a waterproof watch and an underwater torch.
