A net trap is a type of hunting trap employed in the net-trapping Hunter technique used to trap swamp lizards and salamanders. With level 29 Hunter, a rope and small fishing net in the inventory, clicking on a young tree will set the trap. When the lizard or salamander passes, it may be caught, but only when your character isn't standing on the net.

If the prey is successfully caught, the net will close in around the animal, and you will have the option to "Check" the net trap. If not successful, the tree will snap back to its original position, and your small fishing net and rope will appear on the ground, which you must pick up, or it will eventually disappear.

Bait may increase the catch rate for lizards and salamanders and is made by using the herb with 15 swamp tar and a pestle and mortar, though they can be decently caught without any bait.
