Fishing from the rocks

Fishing from the rocks

This man is engaged in a rewarding but potentially dangerous pastime – fishing from the rocks. The foaming waters and kelp beds that surround rocky headlands are often good spots for catching species such as kingfish. But anglers must always be alert, as big waves can knock them into the water, where the weight of their clothes can drag them under.
