Its a trap... for fish. Its pretty much the basic trap that uses the funnels where fish can swim in but not out.
Step 1: Materials and such
most of the materials and such in this project can be subsituted and worked around depending on what you have.
-some sort of mesh
It needs to be small enough that the fishies cannot swim out of it. I used a plastic mesh that i got from the fencing department in lowes
-thin enamel coated wire
They dont need to be very thick, i used bamboo kebabs.
posterboard, wrapping paper
something that you can use to make a cone stencil
something to cut the mesh with
needle nose pliers
Step 2: Cut the peice
The trap consist of four peices , two cones , the cylinder body and the door.
to make the cylinder body just measure out a rectangle of the mesh, The rcylinder should be about twice as long as it is wide so keep tht in mind when you cut the rectangle.. This step isnt real hard its basically cut a rectangle.
Step 3: Roll and connect
So now you need to roll the rectangle into a cylinder . Try to leave and overlap of about 2 units of the mesh. Then used the thin wire to weave the two sides together Start at the edge of the mesh and work across making a seam. Do it as if you were sewing the mesh together with the wire and every so often make a couple loops around the two edges to reinforce it. Using needl nose pliers to pull it through it makes it much easier.
