With all the hardware in place, the crew watches the sun as it set over the trap. It’s a lot of work assembling our pulleys, lines, and aluminum poles in just the right positions, but attention to detail now will pay off when it comes time to fish. An osprey caught its dinner just upstream of the trap today. It watched us struggle to install poles and lines as it ate its catch. It’s a pleasure to watch these master fishers dive along the banks and — with such little effort — pick fish from the water.
