    Fantastic photo. That's about 6-7 times larger than the crayfish (crawdads, we call 'em in some parts of the US) I would see in the creeks near my home as a kid.
    Not too appetizing when alive, but they sure are tasty when prepared right. I'd love to try some Yabbies down under!
    I have on the odd occasion seen grandaddy ones up to a foot long in the creek on a farm where we used to live.

Just about every time you pulled the sring out of the water there was a crawdad that had the bacon and refused to let go.

      That's a cool story. Between the ages of 7 and 15 I spent a lot of my free time in a wooded area next to my house...probably 20-30 acres of trails, woods, a meadow and a decent creek, bounded on one side by RR tracks. You can imagine the various fun my friends and I had with that wonderland nearly all to ourselves. We would catch the occasional crawdad because we stumbled across it by accident. If I had known they would come for the taking just by using a bit of bacon, I might have endangered the entire population of that crick!

      I presently live about 25 minutes from where I grew up. Last April Jill, our dog, and I took a stroll around the old place.
      Surprisingly (or perhaps not so much) I found a tree into which I had carved my initials. That must have been ca. 1979:





      We crossed the creek several times, but I cannot recall seeing any crawdads that day.
      Hey you guys, nice trip down memory lane.

          Four months and change from now I will be spending some vacation time in Maine. I am now very much anticipating lobster dinners.
