Fish Trap





Introduction: Fish Trap

Hi, in this trap i will teach you how to make a simple fish trap.

What you'll need:

1) Plastic bag.
2) Two wooden sticks.
3) Rope.
4) (In order to attract the fish you'll need bread) 
5) Tape.

Step 1:

First, cut 2 equal pieces of rope (it's important that they will be long enough so you can stand far enough from the trap, i suggest about 2 meters). 
Then, ape a stick to one side of the bag like in the photo.
Now tie one piece of rope to the middle of each stick.
Do the the same to the other side of the bag so it looks like a purse.

Step 2: Testing the Trap

Now take the trap to a shallow river, lake, etc. open the bag and fill it with water but leave a small air bubble inside, it helps keeping the bread inside.
Put a small stone inside to keep the bag open. 
The bag should be with its entrance pointing upstream.
Put a small piece of bread inside.
Hold the ropes Strained and wait for fish to come in.
Pull the ropes and move the fish to a box.

Step 3: That's It

I hope you enjoyed this guide, if you have any questions I will answer them happily.

we didn't use bait. the fish just came in on their own.

Cool it's nice to hear that. What did you use as a bait?
