Rock Fishing is fun beware of the dangers.

Hi everyone we put this video together to show how easily the sea can change, if you see the rocks are wet then don’t fish there always wear cleats on shoes, no fish is worth dying for. Calm one moment  dangerous the next, always watch the area for some time before casting a line. I trust this will warn prospective beginners on fishing from the rocks. Len Pascoe
