SILVER KING

SILVER KING

At some point in your angling evolution you have to cross paths with the silver king.  "Apte..ly" named they are the king of the shallow flats.  The site of them cruising at you in 6 ft of water will make you tremble.  Having one turn and follow your fly will send you pulse skyrocketing.  Jumping one and have them spit the fly will have you cursing everyone and everything.  And to catch one...well, you will have to ask those that have done it.

A debt of gratitude to JT Van Zandt  and Captain David Mangum for sharing this photo and video.

Now he only wears his SEAHOLM Offshore.

Free-diving is an art that one fine tunes over years and countless hours of experience, attention and study. It challenges human endurance and product capabilities alike. At SEAHOLM, our watches go through rigorous testing. Lab tests designed to exceed industry standards and push the capabilities of our watches.  But there is no way to better test them than in the field.

We partner with people that we know will put our watches to the test; not just over a couple of days, but over months and years of use. One of those people is Brandon Lillard, a globe-trotting waterman. Brandon is an accomplished skydiver, BASE jumper, spear-fisherman, surfer, World Surf League water patrol and overall saltwater junkie.
