The incident has prompted a safety warning forrock anglers in the region.

About 10.40am Thursday emergency services were called to the Bogey Hole, after a 28-year-old man, believed to be fishing, was washed off rocks and into the ocean.

Meanwhile, all rock anglers are urged to follow these safety tips when they venture out:

* Carry safety gear; head protection, as well as a float and line to help anyone else who might be washed into the water.

* Never fish by yourself and always stand within sight of each other

* Make sure you let family and friends know where you are going and when you’ll be back

* Carry a mobile phone

* Never fish in exposed areas during rough or large seas and be aware that conditions may change dramatically in a short period of time

* Stay alert. Never turn your back on the sea

* If waves, the weather or swell threaten your fishing spot, leave immediately

* If in doubt, don’t go out

* In the event of an emergency, call Triple-0 immediately.
