A new fishing reef south of Botany Bay has been named after one of the legends of the Australian fishing tackle industry.

The late John Dunphy, a member of the Australian Fishing Trade Association (AFTA) Hall of Fame, and a Shimano Australia veteran, died in 2015 after more than 30 years in the industry.

The $500 million reef is the result of 15 years of hard work by a number of recreational fishing organisations in Australia. A plaque was unveiled paying tribute to Dunphy by Stan Konstantaras, of the Recreational Fishing Alliance of NSW, Colin Tannahill, CEO of Shimano Australia, and John Burgess of the Australian National Sportfishing Association.
