Flotation devices save lives
More and more recreational fishers these days are putting safety first.
Whether fishing from shore or on a boat, disaster can strike quickly and the best thing you can do to ensure your own safety while on the water is to be as prepared as you can.
To this end, personal flotation devices are becoming more and more popular with boat and shore fishers.
Gone are the days of large bulky life jackets that were uncomfortable to wear and made performing even simple activities while fishing tough.
Modern PFDs are so light and comfortable you barely even know you are wearing them and they are all fully adjustable so there really is no excuse not to wear one when fishing.
Even boat skippers are wearing their PFDs all the time rather than just having them stored away for an emergency. At Recfishwest, we recommend only the new Crewfit PFDs, which we believe are the world’s best lifejackets.
They come in manual and autoinflate models.
We can even deliver them to your door through our shop at the Fish and Survive website, fishandsurvive. com.au.
The Crewfits are designed to be worn even in the Kimberley heat, hold 200kg in the water, and are endorsed and worn by member of the Department of Transport, Fisheries and Water Police.
Their small size and non-obtrusive design are helping people make the switch to a jacket we believe is the best.
These slimline, lightweight jackets ensure you can carry out important fishing tasks like casting, pulling the anchor rope and reeling in that fish of a lifetime with peace of mind.
