Why Reels and Lines?

Reels and lines are integral tools in spearfishing, especially when targeting larger game or navigating challenging underwater terrain. They serve several essential functions:

  1. Controlled Fish Fighting: When you’ve speared a powerful fish, a reel allows you to play it safely. It prevents the fish from making a rapid escape with your spear or line.
  2. Deeper Dives: Spearos often venture into deeper waters where visibility may be limited. Reels provide control and help divers manage their depth effectively.
  3. Navigational Aid: Lines can act as guide ropes, aiding divers in finding their way back to the surface or their entry point.

 

Safety First with Reels

Rob Allen’s insights highlight the significance of training when it comes to reel and line use. Safety is paramount, and here’s why:

  1. Complexity: Reel systems can be complex. It’s vital to thoroughly understand how they work, including proper deployment, retrieval, and maintenance.
  2. Potential Hazards: Mishandling reels and lines underwater can lead to entanglement or other safety hazards. Training ensures you’re equipped to handle unexpected situations.
  3. Conservation: Responsible spearfishing goes hand in hand with protecting marine ecosystems. Proper training ensures that you can retrieve your equipment, leaving minimal impact on the underwater world.
