Fish trap

This fish trap is made of bamboo and fasten with rattan rings. It is of cylindrical shape with a separate funnel fitted at the mouth for the fish to enter through one direction. This type of fish trap does not require it to be attended to so much so that a few can be set up by the river banks at any one time.
