Another important benefit is being connected to the voice of spearfishing in your area. With so many stories about new protected areas essentially making spearfishing inaccessible and illegal, having a connection your local government to have your voice heard as a spearfisherman is extremely important. Simon has been playing this role for the Central Coast spearos and been a voice for fisho's and spearos alike. Go find out about your local clubs and join!

Starting as a small hobby, he gave Cameron Kirkconnell one of his spearguns to test and he's been making more ever since!
