    Get The Most Out Of Each Dive: Noob Spearo Podcast 137

    October 14, 2020 2 min read

    Taylor Slatter: Adreno Spearfishing Team Member on the Noob Spear podcast.

    This interview with Taylor Slattery was recorded on Day 1 of a charter to the Southern Great Reef aboard the Eastern Voyager. Taylor has been a part of the Adreno spearfishing team for years and has speared all over Australia. In this interview we get systematic on a single drop. This is a mental blueprint for getting the most out of each dive and maximising your time on the bottom hunting fish.
