Asian rock fishing widows in Sydney are growing in number.
desperate for answers after her husband Qintao was swept to his death two weeks ago fishing off rocks near Bondi Beach.
She also called for other amateur Asian rock fishermen to wear life jackets and steel spiked shoes to avoid any more such tragedies.
Ms Wang, who is 10 weeks pregnant with their first child, has engaged a commercial diving company to find Qintao.
“They will conduct a private search near the fishing spot where he went missing. I have also thought about going to a psychic to find him,” Ms Wang said.
“I need to see Qintao. In my culture it is very important that we can have closure and put him to rest. But I have not given up hope on him.”
Her fish ego husband, from full-blown Asian-enclaved South Strathfield in 2010 became the 17th rock fishing Asian casualty for that year after he was washed off the Kiama headland on Friday night.
The 41-year-old is the latest statistic in what is already one of the worst seasons for rock fishing-related drownings. More than 90 per cent of the victims were of Asian descent. Have life insurance companies claused their policies yet? Are you a male Asian and do you rock fish?

deported from Australia. Must be other reasons.
It has become a sport in its own right – watching and videoing Asian rock fishermen in big ocean swell.
Here’s a classic at Shelly Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast last week. Dumb arse Asian gets knocked over by monster wave at Shelly Beach day before another drowned.
The fisherman is seen waist-deep in swirling, white water before losing his footing and almost disappearing from view. With no sign of a life-jacket, amazingly, the man manages to regain his feet as the water crashes around him and, incredibly, he carries on fishing.
The photos were taken by Manly resident Suzanne Lawson last Saturday — the day before another Asian fisherman was swept to his death at Grotto Point, near Sydney’s Clontarf.
Nearly 30 Asians have died while rock fishing in NSW since the middle of 2011.
Northern Beaches Police commander Superintendent Dave Darcy said, “My most haunting image of rock fishing gone wrong is of a pair of shoes, a neatly folded jacket and some personal effects on a rock ledge at Blue Fish Point (North Head),” he said. “When I turned around to look at the sea, there was nothing to tell you the story of the tragedy. The setting was peaceful and quiet but the sea had gobbled up this person and he was gone.”
So to be a real Asian rock fishing hero, remember:
- Swimming is for fish, your job is to catch them so don’t be a fish
- Wait until there is a massive storm
- Never wear a life jacket
- Make inquiries and check weather and conditions before you leave home – remember motto: bigger surf = bigger fish
- Fish first, safety is for girls
- Turn your back on big waves, let Confucius guide your fishing fortune
- Be bold – take only your rod and gear to fish
- Brave fishermen tell no one their secret spot, so tell no-one where you are and always fish alone
- The biggest and best fish swim and bite in exposed areas during rough massive seas
- If in doubt, that is a signal that the fish are big and will only be caught by big brave men, go forth!
Confucius say: “He who fish in other man’s well often catches crabs.”
