    awesome design. where did you get the fiber optic from? was it something you had laying around or did you have to buy it?

    I bought it, its a toslink cable which are common, they are used on xbox 360 etc. to transmit audio. The ends of the cable can differ, you want one with a bulbous end, they seem to throw out more light.

    The heavy cable shown in the last trap just came from a fibre optic dealer.

    Brilliant, so sooo easy to make, yet effective, appeals to fisherman, researchers and kids alike and theres nothing on the market that I know of that is simular. Maybe you should have patented it lol. Wondering though whats attracted to light and whats attracted to the bugs caught, maybe both.
