THE body of a rock fisherman has been found in the sea off Sydney's northern beaches early yesterday evening.
Police say a surf skier spotted the man floating off Freshwater Beach at about 5.30 pm (AEST) yesterday and took him to the beach, where attempts to resuscitate him failed.

Police believe the 47-year-old man from Epping either slipped on rocks or was washed into the sea while fishing.

His name has not yet been released.
