WARNING: Be sure you check your state and territory regulations there are some places where Opera House Yabby Nets have been deemed illegal for use to protect native species that rely on yabbies as food source such as platypus.

Catching yabbies is one of Australia’s great outback pastimes. There’s nothing easier and nothing more delicious than a feed of yabbies. All you need is a dam or creek, several Opera House Yabbie Nets, a length of rope and some time on your hands. You will also need some bait to tie into the net. The experts will tell you, a good bait is essential for a good catch. Fresh fish flesh is often seen as the best. No doubt, it’s a good bait. When you are fishing the vast number of dams on an outback property however, fresh fish flesh is not necessary for a huge haul. Anything from a ham bone with some flesh on it to an old chicken leg will work wonders in these locations and believe it or not rockmelon will also drive a yabby crazy.
The Opera House yabby nets for sale feature fine, durable mesh and double entry rings. There is also a bait holding basket which ties securely in the centre of the net. Ensure the bait net stays there, if a Yabbie can access the bait from outside your net it certainly will and you’ll pull up an empty net with no bait and no yabbies. The net design prevents other animals such as Platypus from entering the trap. It’s important to check the legality of the net you are using against local laws. Most dams are on private property but if fishing in public areas is pays to know the regulations.
Yabbie hunting is very rewarding and a whole heap of fun. While your traps are set you can picnic, fish or kick back and enjoy the peace. For a great haul, leave the traps out overnight. Be conservative. Your Opera House Yabbie net can take a surprising number of Yabbies. Keep only what you want to eat fresh and put the others back to grow, breed and keep stocks healthy.
