a spring-loaded trap made of netting on a frame that closes over a fish. The two rectangular halves of the trap are spread apart from the central spring mechanism. The fish is attracted by bait or a dummy fish that the fish sought tries to fight, e.g. a wooden male salmon painted in spawning colours. See also shutter trap
