Ollie Williams goes spearfishing in Cornwall with harpoon master Mat Coombe. Mat calls it ‘underwater deerstalking’ (and he loves his deerstalking, too). They are after bass and mullet. Plus Mat explains how they dodge the UK water companies’ sewage pollution.

Meanwhile, how easy is it to become a ‘spearo’? Game chef Cai Ap Bryn joins the growing band of people who like to know where their seafood comes from – many of them shooters/hunters on dry land as well. He goes spearfishing with Maxime ‘the Frenchman’ Blondel, who introduces him to the sport. In return, Cai cooks up a seafood feast.
