Good to see advertisements for safer fishing address the real problems* which is ensuring preventative measures are taken (Southern Courier, page 22, 5/2/13).  But pity that the supervising adult in the advertisement isn’t wearing a flotation device.

One of the key messages for safe fishing is  if conditions are not suitable find a safer spot.  But it is unrealistic to think that visitors will want to go home when they have limited leisure time and have driven long distances to get to this area.  We don’t have many suitable shoreline spots where fish can be caught so it is time to be proactive.  Molineux Point should be considered – see previous post. 



*There has been a change in the communication approach. In 2008 the tragic deaths of rock fishers were used for ‘political’ purposes.   This is an example of a front page the Southern Courier ran Apri 15, 2008: “We could have saved his life” by Nick Moncrieff-Hill”.

    Hi, yes communicating to the public the Rock Fishing Safety planning strategies have changed for the better we hope. As you note something good is coming out of past rock fishing incidents, and we thank you for increasing the public’s awareness. We hope the families of lost ones will appreciate this and see this as a positive outcome. The NSW Government has supported the Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW and our other dedicated project partners (NSWDPI-Fisheries, SLSNSW & Aust, MMM) with funding from the Water Safety Black Spot Fund under the Governments Saving Lives Policy. There are several programs running at present, the Media Buy shown here is a part of that funding, there are several media medium styles, in English and other Language text, the images change providing visual safety messages along with the standard safety tip dot points.
    The aim is to increase anglers personal safety awareness , improve the voluntary acceptance of wearing life jackets or buoyancy vests amongst all anglers, and to have families and friends ask where and when an angler is going fishing.
    If you need more information then please contact us via our web sites or, or via the RFA Facebook page and we will respond in due course. Malcolm Poole
