Snorkelling and Spearfishing Nr Old Harry

I hear that the water under the cliffs past Old Harry are good for spearfishing?

I don't know anything about the subject so I was wondering if this type of fishing is any good with a mask and snorkel?

Not really bothered about rushing out and buying a harpoon gun just yet, but I was thinking of a trip out in the sib to take a look next month and I may even take a spinning rod to try for some bass?

Any advice would be great

A visitor to one of our open meetings went spear fishing off the beach with a mask and snorkel. He came back with a pair of bass that made the local sea anglers give him funny looks.

I dont quite understand your question.

If your asking if you need to wear a mask and snorkel whilst fishing from a sib with a rod in a 'spearfishing area'? The answer is no.
