Episode 011:  Chris Coates, Spearfishing Guide & Adventurer

 

Chris Coastes

 

 On this episode of Spearfactor today’s guest is Spearfishing Guide and Adventurer Mr. Chris Coates.  Chris shares with us his experiences diving in South Africa and beyond. We talk extensively about spearguns, dogtooth tuna, flasher tips, gear, slip-tips vs. floppers, accuracy issues and how to fix them, as well as trophy hunting and conservation. This episode was tough due to connection issues from USA to South Africa, but after some creative thinking, I was able to record one of the most informative spearfishing episodes yet!
