Angel Ring history

In 1993 the life of a rock fishing angler was saved at Moes Rock, south of Jervis Bay (NSW) by a life ring installed by a bereaved father who had lost son who was rock fishing at Moes Rock at an earlier date.

In 1993 the NSW Department of Sport Recreation and Racing formed a group to focus on Rock Fishing Safety. A year later, ANSA NSW was commissioned to manage a project that would see the installation of “Guardian Angel Rings” in known rock fishing spots and thus the creation of the Angel Ring Project, which has been actively running and gaining momentum since then.

From 1994 to today, ANSA NSW has been managing the project and has installed over 100 angel rings in known rock fishing spots and is participating in community education programs.
