Well I am always around watching from a far but we have the same issues as you do!
Nobody really knows what will happen but fingers crossed we can get in the water before the season ends!

Hey Foxfish, with all this time inside, do you have any of your epic gun builds planned or in progress? Would love to see some pictures!

I can show you plenty of guitars that I build but the last gun I built was this time last year!
I always built one or two a year as prizes for the Guernsey spearfishing competition but last year was the last competition we were organising although hopefully it will be back next year with new guys in charge.
Chris Mills an aka Trelawny on the forums won the gun, I will see if I can find some pictures ....

That thing is beautiful. Almost too pretty to get wet. Kudoes!

My old gun looks like something that was left out in the yard for a year after the dog chewed on it. Shoots good though.

What are the coronovirus rules in your area, relative to spearing? in Florida, fishing (spearing) is still allowed, even though a lot of boat ramps are closed.

In my area , nothing that puts a threat on the emergency services is allowed, this is a little controversial but basically... people can swim in the sea and fish from the shore but spearfishing is deemed to much of a threat sois not allowed, no private boating either .
On the positive side, only a few small fishing boats are operating and the whole commercial fishing fleet is in dock.

Much to everyone’s consternation, the gun is going to be used for its intended purpose when the lockdown is eased.
I’ll only be using it on the boat, well away from rocks and barnacles!

Wow ^^^^ amazing bit of craftsmanship @foxfish well done!

I'm still about, desperate to get in the water, I don't recon it will be too long now, hopefully just a few more weeks.

Just stocked up on some new kit for the season, cant wait to get in.
