Primitive Technology: Shrimp Trap

Guy builds a shrimp trap from lawyer cane, sticks and vine to catch some shrimp for lunch. This method of catching shrimp is easy with the only skill needed being basketry. In practice, a long stretch of creek might have several traps collecting food each day without any effort on the part of the fisherman. Bait is not necessary to catch shrimp as they will be naturally be drawn to the fish trap out of curiosity. But scraps from previous shrimp may be used to bring in new ones.
