    Guide to gear and catching Abalone in Melbourne (Victoria)

    Interested in catching some Abalone in Melbourne?

    Victoria is a great place for Abalone, Black lip and Green Lip abalone alike. However, before I talk about some of the equipment best suited to catch them I will note that there is strict regulations on Abalone in Victoria. Please see this link below to understand these regulations.

  2. How to pick the right replacement spear and rubber (powerbands)

    How to pick the right replacement spear and rubber (powerbands)

    Replacing your powerbands or spear shafts is actually a simple process, but it requires a bit of planning. 

    Spears / Shafts

    For selecting your spear shaft the first thing you need to consider is the type of mechanism your speargun has. There are two common styles, one which latches onto a notch on the shaft and the other that presses down on a flat surface (often called the "euro" style mechanism). Old style seahornets, some styles of wood guns, and others home made guns can have the notched style spears. These are somewhat less common in Australia these days. Torelli, Rob Allen, and Cressi use the 'euro' style mechanism where the spear is held in place by pressure applied to the flat smooth surface. These are the main spears we sell and will suit most of these big brands.

    To select the right spear / shaft length you want to choose a spear that is either 4

  3. Spearfishing Gear and Safety

    Spearfishing Gear and Safety

    Diving safely with the right equipment could save your life

    Spearfishing is a great sport, but it comes with its own dangers. The best way to negate these dangers is to pick the right gear and safety equipment. Here i'll talk through some of the most basic and some gadgets to help keep you safe on the water.

    Knives

    Knives are the most simple and useful part of your equipment, but they also have a safety role. Knives are used to dispatch fish and burley, but they are also useful for cutting anything you may be entangled in.

    Floats

    Spearfishing floats are useful for holding your fish and other equipment high in the water and reducing drag. They are also extremely useful as buoyancy devices to rest on if tired. They are bright coloured and often reflective so to be seen from boats,

  4. What are Spearfishing Flashers? (Fish Attractors)

    What are Spearfishing Flashers? (Fish Attractors)

    Flashers are one of the most useful tools to a spearfisherman or diver for attracting fish in open water.

    Flashers, as the name suggests, flashes light around the water which attracts fish from far away. The fish can be mesmerised by the flashers spinning or flickering in the water allowing a great opportunity to capture them. There are different designs, some more complex than others. However, the simplest piece of reflective glass can be extremely effective at attractive fish e.g. the Torelli Flick Fish. All of the flashers provided at Legendary are tried and tested tools. You may wish to look on youtube for pelagic fish attracted by flashers to see how effective these really are. Flashers are an important part of your spearfishing gear if you're heading out to shoot most pelagic species!
