"There I was on all fours and he's looking at me and I'm looking at him and then he started to do the dance around and shake and I couldn't get out quick enough onto the gunnel," Mr Selwood said.Selwood was not bitten, but the shark fin hit him so hard that he was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injured arm. The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) used a forklift to remove the shark from the boat. It was taken away for a necropsy. Selwood says the incident will not stop him from fishing.
"I was losing a fair amount of blood, I was stunned, I couldn't register what happened and then I thought oh my God, I've got to get out of here."
Mr Selwood reached for his radio and called the local marine rescue volunteers at Evans Head.
Marine Rescue Unit commander Karen Brown said a crew was sent out to rescue Mr Selwood and then went back out a second time to retrieve the fisherman's boat and the shark.
