Artist's Description


Rock Fishermans last resort, the Angel Ring life buoy at Nth Curl Curl.

As a side note to this image let me tell you of what I saw the morning this image was taken:

Fisherman arrives, making his way around the rocks between sets of larger waves. He finds a spot he is keen to fish from, moves away from the rock platform edge to set his fishing kit down and then set up his rod and reel. From the moment he found his spot and turned his back he paid no attention to what the waves were doing. With his bag down out came the bait, tackle box and other assorted items. Just as he was sorting out his rig and what to use a larger wave hit the rock platform edge. This time it was big enough to wash over the edge, up over the rising platform then down into the rock pool behind it. In doing so it caught this said fisherman completely unaware. This time he was lucky, it was only his kit that got worked over. If he continues to treat the ocean with such contempt he may not be so lucky and this buoy may be his only saving grace.

Let’s hope it never comes to this.

For me, my sympathy goes to the Surf Life Savers and Rescue personnel that put there own lives at risk due to individuals stupidity and ignorance.

Also I would like to draw your attention to this project, known as the Angel Rings Project . It is managed by the Australian National Sportfishing Association.
