This last week’s episode of Alone showed Alan making a fish trap. I have seen various versions of fish traps before, most being very similar to what he made. I did run across a very simple and effective trap made with only sticks driven into the ground with a “V” shaped opening like the fish trap openings that Alan made. This type of trap seems that it would be quite effective for a multitude of different species as well as being quite easy to build. Easy build is VERY important because I hate expending calories when I don’t need to. Winter is coming, you know.
Here is the video. Although it is a bit shaky with regard to sound you should be able to get a good idea of what is going on. Enjoy!!
