Description

Double entrance fish trap. A long narrow tube with an opening at one end. There are two openings near the middle where the fish enter. These are facing away from each other and they have strands of bamboo pointing inward so the fish can't swim back out. Mostly used in September-November. Re-numbered "82-7-258" but changed back immediately. No lacquered number on object.
