Our History

Here, you can learn a little about us and our history. Start Point Spearfishing, (formerly Spearfishing Store), was established in 2012 by Anthony Butcher.  In 2020, the store was taken over and rebranded to Start Point Spearfishing by Barcley Spicer Jenkins. The store is named after a local beach where Barcley learned to spearfish, but also reflects the store’s dedication to helping beginners at the starting point of their Spearfishing journey.  Now the UK’s largest spearfishing store, Start Point Spearfishing is Located in Plymouth, well known as one of the best spearfishing spots in the UK.

Meet The Team

The team at Start Point Spearfishing are here to introduce themselves.

Barcley is Start Point Spearfishing’s managing director, leading the UK’s premier spearfishing company as the spearfishing hub of the UK. Born and raised in Devon, Barcley has been spearfishing the Devon and Cornwall coastline for almost a decade. He loves adventure and is happiest when camping on a remote beach and eating only what he has caught himself. Finding and extracting large lobsters are what he enjoys the most. He is extremely knowledgeable about wetsuits, spearguns, rigging and reels and is pretty handy in a chef’s apron too!
