Grim Workshops' Survival Tip

Using an old two liter bottle you can easily and quickly make an improvised trap for insects, or bait fish. Cutting the top off just as it starts to straighten out and inverting it so it points in towards the bottle. You can poke a few holes in it to wire, or zip tie the top on and poke some holes along the sides to help it sink easier. You can also throw some rocks into it so it sinks faster in the water (just don't forget to tie a line to it so you can check it regularly and not have it drift off!)
