Making a snare out of fishing line is a great way to trap small game without having to buy expensive trapping equipment. It is also an effective way to catch fish if you don’t have a rod and reel.
Here are the steps for making a snare out of fishing line.
Step 1: Gather your supplies. You’ll need some strong fishing line, a few rubber bands, and some type of weight (like a rock).
Step 2: Tie the fishing line around an object or tree branch that will act as the anchor point for your snare. Make sure it is secure and won’t move when tension is applied.
Step 3: Tie two rubber bands onto the fishing line at two different points about 5-6 inches apart.
Step 4: Tie the weight to one side of the rubber bands so that it hangs down from the fishing line.
Step 5: Set up your bait near the weight and wait for an animal to come along and take it. When they do, the weight will pull down on the rubber band, which will tighten around their neck or body.
Making a snare out of fishing line is a great way to trap small game without spending money on expensive equipment. With just some basic supplies and some patience, you can make your own snare that is just as effective as any store-bought one.
