Wading boots or waders, dip nets, folding bait traps, bait or burley for the traps, buckets (with lids), a field tank for photography, an esky or styrofoam box to hold the fish in, plastic bags for the fish, rubber bands, non- iodised salt (cooking salt, rock salt, etc), drinking water, sunscreen and insect repellent, fish and plant identification books, goggles and snorkel (for the brave), and water test kits if you have them (hardness, total hardness, pH, dissolved oxygen, salinity, etc).
We are a conservation society. We are not there to rape and pillage.
Take only as much as you need to display or breed. It is illegal to sell fish from the wild without a licence.
An important part of each field trip is to survey and record the water conditions and what we find, and any assistance with this task will be appreciated.
