About the author
Dr. Terry Maas is a veteran freediver and world record holder. He started diving when he was 14 years old and has been freediving steadily for the last 58 years. One of his most memorable events was the landing of his 398-pound bluefin tuna. [more]
"As a young man starting out spearfishing, I discovered Blue Water Hunting and Freediving by Terry Maas. As I read over the pages of that book, I learned how to build my own gear and I learned to read the fish and the underwater environment as Terry explained in those pages. Terry’s book helped me and my friends take a giant leap forward in our understanding of our ocean environment and hunting abilities. His new edition is even better than the first. Terry has spent a lifetime observing the ocean environment around the globe, and perfecting his diving and hunting techniques. There is also advice from some of the best divers in the world today in word, pictures and amazing video. You access the video using the 30 QR codes embedded. You would need to spend 10 lifetimes diving around the world to acquire all the knowledge in these pages. Whether you are a seasoned pro or just a beginner, this book will have much to teach you"

"Super excited on the latest reprint of the Blue Water Hunting book by Terry Maas. A book that every waterman and spearfisherman must have. After all it is known as the Bible of Spearfishing. Luckily to us Terry have gone above and beyond to bring us this version. The latest print is going to offer high res photography (Which will make us feel even more into the moment) and all the updates. Thank you very much Terry for all your contribution to the sport. I can’t wait to get my hands on it"

"For years I’ve been recommending and loaning my first edition of the book to friends because it remains the best single reference on Spearfishing techniques, equipment and safety. The digital version brought it up to date and included great videos illustrating things discussed in the preceding paragraphs, but I’ve always thought it would be great to have an updated print version for the coffee table. I’m glad to hear that it’s available now."
