Event Details:
A great event for novice and expert alike. The cull involves going out with your buddies to shoot catfish using a pole spear/Hawaiian sling. This year we will spit up into pairs (not groups). If you don’t have a buddy, don’t worry – we can find a match for you. If you’ve never done any spearfishing before then this is a great way to start. Cost to enter is $40. This will get you an event T-shirt, sausage sizzle at the prizegiving, Spearfishing NZ donation and prizes.
