Two British Records fell this year to Rob Allen guns

rob150The current British spearfishing records are listed below.  The current lemon sole and gilthead bream records were both landed in 2011 with Rob Allen guns.We anticipate the black bream and seabass records falling soon, given the number of sightings of 5lb black bream and 20lb bass this season. Cameron, Titus and Rory have all encountered the fabled 20lb seabass this year and confirm that they are not straightforward to catch!
