Fisherman washed off rocks at Bondi

* April 25, 2009 - 9:56AM

A fisherman has been washed off rocks at North Bondi beach.

The man, who is aged in his 50s, was fishing with a friend on rocks in front of sewerage works when the pair were struck by several large waves about 6.40pm (AEST) on Friday, police say.

The missing man's fishing companion contacted emergency services to raise the alarm.

Police say two rescue helicopters, water police and coastal patrol vessels searched for the man, but failed to find him.

The search was called off after about two hours due to poor conditions.

It will resume at first light on Saturday.
