Story behind the photograph
On my recent outing to Avoca Beach I came across a group of interesting dressed fisherman. Unlike most people there who simply fished in their tongs and t-shirts this group was dressed head to toe in protective gear. I’ve approached them and asked them if I could take a photo. While I was doing that a big wave hit the rocks and carried one of the t-shirt clad fisherman about 10 meters on his back on the rocks. Now I could easily understand why these seasoned anglers were wearing so much gear. The fishermen were originally from Philippines who now call Australia home. Jokingly they said “We don’t like fishing but we are here every day”. As you can see in the photo gallery they have had some success with their angling.
