    A great effort by this young guy to rescue fish. And he had an encounter with a 1.23 metre carp that 'face planted' him! I think the carp met its end after that! Unfortunately there are no pics of the carp.
    Cheers

    A great story. We need more motivated young people like that.

    Might have to change my technique. The rod and reel hasn't been doing it for me of late.

    I notice he is not wearing gloves, authoroties should donate him a few pairs of fishing gloves for grip and protection from spines and gills ETC.

    Good lad, even other people who aren't fishos get concerned about fish in danger, the murry cod has bought a lot of needed attention about whats going on whith our rivers.
