Interview by Michael Bell - Subject 1 - Peter van Meurs

This is the first in what I hope to be a series of interviews with people who have proven to be successful in 500 Metre fly and or are respected in their fields.

The aim of these articles is to get some insight into the methods and opinions of these people so that all “fly” shooters can learn a little about what it takes to get the best from themselves and or their equipment.
