Flota­tion de­vices save lives

Pilbara News - - Sport - An­drew Row­land

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.
