Fish Trap

I have been asked by one of my readers to provide a little more information about a fish trap which I use at the cabin.  This particular trap is called a “Mjäder” and I first used it when I visited the cabin before I even owned it

The frame is made from steel wire, and then the frame is covered with chicken wire.  It can be very effective at catching fish.

There is a small door so that you can reach in and remove the fish.

You can see here that there are many different designs.
