Spearfishing not Spear Fishing

Although writing spear fishing is not wrong. The community combines the two words into one. If you are on a forum or want to do research on line use the one word combined version: Spearfishing

Same goes for Speargun, Polespear, and Freediving

We really like combining words. You will probably get better results when searching for these terms if you use these forms. Learning and using the right terminology will take you further in your research and interactions with other spearfishers.
