 would be to hit up a decent takle store such as complete angler, they'd surely have them there. With cliff/fly gaffs you want to connect to the gaff with some rope. once you've hooked your big fish you want to thread the main line into the fly gaff, it's kinda like a split ring i guess. When i have used them before i was shown by my mates old man years ago, i stood off to the side of the main line a little whilst lowering it down, this prevented the rope wrapping around the main line. don't lower the gaff down too fast either. once the gaff is close to the fish move and stand closer to the main line and drop it on making sure some of the hooks get into the fish. from there pull the mofo up. you might be better of with a extendable/retractable gaff on the jetty i would think. been a while since i fished in busso.

 For bus so jetty you would only need an extendable long handled gaff . More control and can be used on beaches or a boat , lot more practical .

Crab net

I've seen people using a crab net successfully before. I'm not sure whether it was planned or just happened to be there at the time.

Gaff

 I live in Busso, you can just pick it up when you arrive or need it. Be some local knowledge to go with it, if the gaff could talk it would have some good storys to tell.
