Fishing supplies, supplies for fishing, food and more.
The death of a fisherman in a fishing incident in Cairnes last night is a reminder of the dangers of the sport and its dangerous lifestyle.
The man, aged in his 60s, was fishing in a small creek in the creek at the Cairngorms on Thursday when he fell into the water.
“He was floating and was caught under the water, but luckily he’s been pulled out alive,” Cairn’s acting Regional Manager of Fisheries and Aquaculture Peter Smith said.
“The incident was a freak accident, it’s just a horrible thing to do to someone, it was a really sad incident and a terrible loss.”
The man had not been wearing a life jacket, nor were his clothing or lifejacket.
He was wearing a blue lifejear jacket, blue lifejackets and blue lifewatches, but was wearing no life jackets.
“We’ve got people who are working on the surface of the water with life jackets and we’re going to continue to monitor what’s going on, but it’s not good enough, it should be better,” Mr Smith said of the incident.
“It’s not a great feeling to be in the water and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
I’m very proud of what we’ve done with this program, the divers have been very professional and the divers are doing great.
“The Cairndorp Community Centre has released a statement saying the man died as a result of “a terrible incident”.”
He’s sadly gone in our care, he was an extremely loving father, husband and grandfather, and a member of the Cailndorp community,” it reads.”
Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.
“The coroner’s office is still awaiting an autopsy report and no further information will be released until then.
