Angel Ring count grows

RECREATIONAL Fishing Alliance Secretary and ANSA President Stan Konstantaras, a tireless advocate for rock fishing safety in NSW, has once again been busy promoting safe fishing practices in the state.

Konstantaras was last week involved with the installation of seven new Angel Rings at popular rock fishing locations from Yamba to Cape Byron. He also spoke to the region’s anglers about rock fishing safety and gave away the RFA’s Rockfishing Safety DVDs.

The total number of Angel Rings in NSW is now 130; the lives of 57 rock fishers have been saved thanks to the installation of these safety flotation devices.

Konstantaras says Angel Rings have also been installed in Western Australia via local anglers in Shark Bay and he hopes they may also be seen in other parts of Australia, including Tasmania and Far North Queensland.

Angel Rings are NSW Recreational Fishing Trust funded and supported by Crown Lands and National Parks and Wildlife Service in NSW. Stan Konstantaras and a small group of volunteers install and and maintain them as part of ANSA NSW.

Fishing World would like to commend Stan Konstantaras, the RFA and everyone involved for their ongoing efforts in promoting rock fishing safety.
