Can you cross some outdoor sports to become new ones?

How about fishing and trapping?

Witness what happens when a foothold trap goes fishing.

In a video shared by Facebook user Guy Savidge you will witness what happens when trapping and fishing combine.

Before you try this better think again. There might be wildlife regulations that would make this illegal

In the video the angler takes a coilspring foothold trap that was tied onto a reel’s line, sets it, baits it and lowers it overboard. A fish gets caught in short order and is going nowhere. Who would have even thought this was possible? In a survival situation, this little video might give you a life saving idea. Just sayin’!
