Did you know Recfishwest, along with community partners and tackle shops provide the WA fishing community with Free Loan Lifejackets, where rock fishers can head into their local regional tackle shop and hire a lifejacket for free for the day?
The jackets that are available for hire are Crewsaver Slimline Manual Inflating jackets that require you to pull the ‘inflate’ toggle when you enter the water. Recfishwest believe these are the best available on the market.
