Safety Advice for Fishing from Beaches / Rocks along the Coast

The following advice is provided as a guide to keeping safe while fishing from beaches / rocks along the coast:

  • Endeavour to go fishing in a group of 2 or more - or go to an area where you would expect other anglers to be.
  • Ensure that someone not on the fishing trip knows where you intend to go and roughly how long you will be away. If possible, take a mobile phone with you
  • For longer fishing trips ensure that you have enough food and drink to sustain you
  • Plan your fishing trip along the coast - take time to find out the time of sun rise, sun set, high tide, low tide and the weather forecast. All these elements can have a significant impact on the conditions for your fishing trip.
  • Take particular care if your route is via a beach or cove - ensure you know the tide times so you won’t be cut off
  • Take particular care when paths, grass, timber and/or natural stone is wet as these ground surfaces can be very slippery. Please dress for the terrain and the weather.
  • Take special care of children and pets if they are on the fishing trip with you
  • Do not attempt a fishing trip beyond your fitness level.
  • The following is recommended in terms of appropriate safety equipment for a fishing trip to a coastal area:
    • A lifejacket
    • Footwear with good foot/heel protection and non-slip soles
    • Light but warm / rain resistant clothing
  • In an emergency dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
  • If someone is washed into the ocean
  • Don't jump in after them
  • Look for a throw line, lifebuoy or something that floats and throw it to the person in the water
  • Dial 999 on your mobile phone and ask for the Coastguard or go for help
