A Rocky Start To The Morning

I’m not saying this man I photographed at Snapper Rock yesterday on the Gold Coast was in danger, but rock fishing is noted as the most dangerous sport in Australia. There has been at least 68 deaths in the last five years in Australia with almost all victims not wearing life jackets. This bloke survived okay, but I didn’t see him catch any fish. Queensland, Australia.

  1. Great capture of the water spray Tommy – and it serves to illustrate how dangerous rock fishing is! It’s a problem in NZ as well, and it’s usually people trying out a new spot (and tourists) who get caught out.
