Hi Ya,

I read a post by Terry on another forum that the Govt wants them to have 1000 members to maintain funding.  When I joined a coupleof weeks ago I think I was member number 606, so I agree, nowhere near enough.

Join up.  It can't hurt.

Details about Recfishwest

Anyone who want more details about RFW can PM or email me via Fishwrecked.

Recfishwest works so that:-

• fishing for you and your kids and your grand kids will still be there and be better in 10, 20, 30 years' time;

• recreational anglers get a fair share of the fish, crabs, crays, etc;

• access to the fish and fishing spots is not taken away without REALLY good reasons;

• fishing and environmental actions are sustainable;

• the rules are based on sustainability and the real risks to fish and the environment, not based on blind ideology.

There's lots of info on the RFW website about what RFW does for recreational fishermen in WA, for example

Latest is the submission on Managing the Catch of Demersal Scalefish which is one of the most important changes for boat fishermen ever.

RFW members get regular weekly emails with a summary and links to several important or interesting internet articles about fishing. Those alone are worth the membership because they help keep you informed.

Earlier editions of "Casting Around the Internet with Recfishwest" delayed by about 4 weeks are on the Recfishwest website at

There are lots of posts in the Fishwrecked "Political and Environmental Issues" Forum and similar special forums on other WA fishing sites.

You can join RFW for just $20 or $10 for over 65/under 18, $40 for a family of 4 - by post, by phone 9246 3366, fax 9246 5955, by email , in person, or fill in a website form see
