In 1993 the life of a rockfishing 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 rockfishing at Moes Rock at an earlier date.

In 1993 the 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 rockfishing spots and thus the creation of the Angel Ring Project which has been actively running and gaining momentum since then.

1994 – Today – ANSA NSW has been managing the project and has installed over 100 angel rings in known rockfishing spots and is participating in community education programs.

The very first guardian angel ring.
