For many of us, hunting Yabbies in the dams, tanks, creeks and rivers when we were kids is a wonderful memory. The hunt, the catch and the delicious spoils were so good, most of us have continued chasing Yabbies from childhood, and we deploy a trap whenever we get the chance.
The Gillies Pyramid Yabby Nets for sale now is an extremely important development for Yabbie hunting fans. More importantly, the Gillies Pyramid Lift Net for Yabbies is vitally important for our iconic, much loved monotreme, the Platypus.
The use of certain Yabbie traps, especially the Opera house yabby trap, has been responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Platypus in Victoria alone. Estimates suggest a drop of 50% in Platypus numbers, with certain shaped Yabby traps being the most destructive.
The opera house yabby trap is band in many locations, as are other styles of traps. The Gillies Pyramid Lift Net for Yabbies is government approved but be sure to check your intended trapping location for local rules. Be aware, those caught using the (band) traps face a $37,000 fine or up to two years in jail.
At the fishing tackle shop we are strong advocates of responsible fishing practices. That’s why we’re selling the Gillies Pyramid Lift Net for Yabbies for rock bottom prices to encourage as many of you to buy as many traps as you can so we can see an end to the deadly bycatch.
Granted, you’re not going to see any Platypus in a tank out back of Bourke in the middle of a massive sheep station, but it’s better to encourage best practice and get rid of the old methods that have caused so much destruction.
