This event is also a Yabby Trap Drop Spot. Bring down any old and unwanted opera house yabby traps, from 8:15am to 1:00pm and swap it for an Oar-Gee Plow lure to support sustainable fishing practices. Opera house nets are now illegal in NSW and those collected will be recycled into useful products for anglers, with the proceeds being used to support habitat restoration.
Registration is essential. We hope to see you there!
