Amazing Fish Trap Making | ഈ മീൻ കൂട് ഉണ്ടെങ്കിൽ മീൻ ചാകര ഉറപ്പാണ് | M4 Tech |


HI FRIENDS, WELCOME TO M4 TECH. TODAY WE ARE GOING TO MAKE A ‘MEEN KOOD’ (A SORT OF FISH TRAP). USING THIS FISH TRAP WE CAN EASILY CATCH FISH WITHOUT MAKING OUR HANDS WET. THAT MEANS, WE DON’T HAVE TO TAKE TOO MUCH EFFORT TO CATCH FISH. ONCE WE KEEP THIS IN WATER, FISH WILL ENTER INSIDE AND GET TRAPPED IT’S OWN IN THIS. THE FISH WONT BE ABLE TO COME OUT OF THE NET AFTER IT GETS TRAPPED INSIDE. WE WILL KEEP SOME FOOD IN THE NET TO FEED THE FISH AND THEN KEEP THIS IN WATER. IT IS VERY SIMPLE TO CATCH THE FISH WITH THIS TRAP. NOW LETS SEE HOW TO MAKE THIS FISH TRAP. LET US MOVE ON TO WORKSHOP FRIENDS, NOW WE ARE GOING TO START OUR WORK. EVEN IF ITS LIGHTLY DRIZZLING WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO COMPLETE OUR VIDEO. FIRST, WE TOOK A STRING. (USUALLY USED TO TIE THE FALLING COCUNUT TREES) WE CAN BUY THIS TYPE OF STRING
FROM HARDWARE SHOPS. FROM THAT COILED STRING, WE HAVE TO CUT THE STRING REQUIRED. CUT-OFF PARTS OF STRING HAVE TO BE JOINED NOW LIKE THIS. FOR THAT, WE ARE USING THIS PLASTIC THREAD AND WINDING IT AROUND. FROM THIS PLASTIC THREAD, CUT AND TAKE THE PIECE OF THREAD NEEDED TO TIE UP THE ENDS OF STRING. WE HAVE CUT THE THREAD WITH ABOUT 1.5 METER LENGTH. AS SAID EARLIER, TO JOIN THE ENDS OF STRING, HOLD BOTH ENDS OF STRINGS AND TIGHTLY WRAP THE THREAD AROUND THE STRING. ACTUALLY, TODAY WE THOUGHT OF DOING ANOTHER VIDEO RELATED WITH ELECTRONICS. BECAUSE OF RAIN, WE WERE TOTALLY HELPLESS. WE WERE NOT ABLE TO COMPLETE THAT VIDEO. AS WE WERE FREE, WE THOUGHT OF DOING A VIDEO ON FISH TRAP. FOR A LONG TIME, I WAS THINKING TO DO THIS VIDEO. BY CHANCE ,TODAY WAS THE LUCKY DAY TO COMPLETE THIS. SO WE HAVE TO WIND THE WHOLE THREAD THAT WE TOOK. NOW THE FIRST STRING TIED UP WITH THE THREAD IS READY. TO STRENGTHEN THIS KNOT, TAKE FLEX QUICK OR SUPER GLUE THAT STICK EASILY AND DOESN’T DISSOLVE IN WATER. APPLY IT ON THE THREAD TIED ON THE STRING LIKE THIS. THEN THE KNOT WILL BE MORE STRONG AND WILL NOT GET LOOSENED UP. NOW ITS DONE AND WE HAVE TO REPEAT THE SAME IN THE OTHER TWO STRINGS. SO OUR RINGS ARE TIED UP. NEXT WE ARE TAKING PIPE WHICH ARE USUALLY USED FOR WIRING. THIS IS A FULL LENGTH PIPE AND IS AROUND 3 METER. WE HAVE TAKEN 3 SIMILAR FULL LENGTH PIPES. NOW WE HAVE TO CUT THE PIPE. CUT TO A LENGTH OF 90 CM OR 1 METRE. NOW A SET IS CUT DOWN AND READY. WE CAN NOW CUT THE OTHER SET OF PIPES. WE ‘VE TO CUT OTHER PIPES IN SAME MEASUREMENT AS EARLIER. WE NEED 8 PIECES LIKE THIS. NOW WE ARE GOING TO TIE EACH RINGS WITH PIPES. TAKE ONE RING AND A PIECE OF PIPE. HOLDING THEM VERY CLOSELY, WRAP THEM USING A THREAD PIECE AS SHOWN IN VIDEO. EVEN IF WE USE THE THREAD AND TIGHTEN UP AMAP, IT WILL NOT GET SO SECURED. SO WE ARE APPLYING GLUE AS EARLIER. FIRST RING IS READY. TAKE THE SECOND RING AND HOLD IT IN THE CENTER OF PIPE. TRY TO FIX THE RING EXACTLY IN THE MIDDLE OF PIPE. SECOND RING IS ALSO ATTATCHED TO THE PIPE. SO WE HAVE COMPLETED JOINING TWO RINGS WITH THE PIPE. NEXT TAKE THE THIRD RING. AS SAID BEFORE , TRY TO SECURE THEM AMAP AT THE VERY END OF PIPE. SO WE ARE GOING TO TIE THE LAST PIECE OF PIPE. WE TOOK 8 PIECE OF PIPES AND HAVE FINISHED ASSEMBLING 7 PIECES. WE ARE GOING TO JOIN THE LAST PIECE. TRY TO KEEP SAME GAP BETWEEN PIPES WHILE TYING. IF GAP BETWEEN TWO PIPES INCREASES, IT MIGHT EFFECT THE SHAPE OF THE TRAP WHILE TYING THE NET. BEYOND THE SHAPE,THERE IS NO OTHER PROBLEM. NOW WE ARE TYING THE LAST PIECE AND APPLYING SUPER GLUE. ATTACHING 8 PIECES OF PIPE IS NOW COMPLETED. NOW IT IS IN A SHAPE OF A HOLLOW OBJECT. NEXT IS TO SET THE NET AROUND THE RING. THERE IS SOMETHING BEFORE THAT. THE IMPORTANT PORTION OF THIS FISH TRAP IS TO MAKE THE NET IN FUNNEL SHAPE. FIRST, LETS MAKE THAT. TO MAKE THE NET INTO FUNNEL SHAPE, WE HAVE TAKEN A NET OF 1 METER. WE ARE NOW GONNA CUT A CONE SHAPE FROM THIS. IN ORDER TO CUT IN CONE SHAPE, WE HAVE TO FOLD THE NET AS SHOWN IN VIDEO. WE ARE CUTTING FROM 2 SIDES OF THE NET LIKE THIS. SO CUTTING FROM ONE SIDE IS OVER. LET US CUT OTHER SIDE TOO. CUTTING FROM BOTH THE SIDES HAVE COMPLETED. NOW WE HAVE TO CUT IT IN A STRAIGHT MANNER, END TO END LIKE THIS. REMOVE THE LEFT OVER NET AFTER CUTTING THIS IS THE PIECE WE GOT. WE HAVE TO STITCH THE EDGES OF NET. STITCH EACH SIDE OF THE NET WITH THEIR RESPECTIVE EDGES. WE ARE NOW GOING TO START STITCHING THE PIECES OF NET. FOR THAT, I HAVE TAKEN A LONG NEEDLE WITH THREAD INSERTED. LETS START STITCHING. FRIENDS, SO WE HAVE COMPLETED STITCHING 2 SIDES OF OUR NET. NOW WE CAN SEE, AT ONE END THERE IS LARGE HOLE. AND AT THE OTHER END, THERE IS A SMALL HOLE. THAT MEANS IT SHOULD LOOK SOMEWHAT LIKE A FUNNEL. NOW WE HAVE TO BIND THIS NET ON FRAME THAT WE HAVE ALREADY MADE. FRIENDS, SO WE ARE GOING TO TIE THE FUNNEL SHAPED NET TO THE FRAME. FOR THAT, FIRST TIE THE 4 SIDES OF NET TO THE RING. NOW WE ARE SEWING THE NET AROUND THE EDGES OF RING. WE DON’T NEED TO STITCH IT TIGHTLY. STITCH IT IN A TO AND FRO MANNER LIKE THIS. TAKE THE NET AND KEEP IT LIKE THIS. SEWING IT TO AND FRO AS SHOWN WITH NEEDLE AND THREAD MAKES IT MUCH TIGHTENED. ITS RAINING HEAVILY, BUT WE WILL DEFINITELY FINISH MAKING THIS TODAY. BY EVENING WE HAVE TO DIP THIS FISH TRAP IN WATER. SO WE WILL SURELY COMPLETE DOING THIS. I AM SURELY GONNA SUFFER WITH FEVER THIS WEEK. IF WE FINISH THIS TODAY, WE WOULD BE LUCKY AS WE ARE GONNA GET PLENTY OF FISH. SINCE ITS RAINING GOOD AFTER A LONG TIME, THE FISHES WOULD BE GOING INTO FIELDS VIA ‘CHAAL’ (SUB RIVERS) WE WOULD GET MANY FISHES IF WE FINISH THIS TODAY. SO WE WOULD SURELY FINISH THIS. NOW WE ARE TO REACH THE LAST PORTION OF SEWING THE FUNNEL SHAPED NET ON THE TOP SIDE. ONLY LITTLE MORE PORTION IS THERE TO COMPLETE. SO WE HAVE FINISHED SEWING. AFTER THAT, WE HAVE TIED TWO PLASTIC THREADS IN TWO ENDS OF THE EDGE OF NET. NOW WE ARE GOING TO TIE THIS THREAD TO OUR FRAME. TIE THE THREAD BY EXTENDING IT AMAP. THE KNOT MUST BE VERY TIGHT. ONE SIDE IS OVER. NOW THE NEXT. MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS A HOLE LIKE THIS LEFT IN THE MIDDLE BEFORE TYING THE SECOND SIDE. ONLY THEN THE FISH WOULD ENTER IN. WE WILL NOW COVER THE WHOLE RING WITH THE NET. SO MAKING FUNNEL AND WRAPPING IT AROUND IS THE FIRST STEP TO MAKE THE TRAP. SO PULL IT AMAP AND TIGHTEN IT. FRIENDS NEXT WE ARE GOING TO DO IS TAKE A NET OF THIS SIZE. THIS IS TAKEN TO COVER THE WHOLE FRAME OF FISH TRAP. WE HAVE TAKEN A PIECE OF NET THAT IS ENOUGH TO COVER THE FULL FRAME. WE NOW WANT TO TIE THIS NET ALL AROUND THE FRAME SAME WAY AS WE DID TO TIE THE RING. FRIENDS, SO WE HAVE FINISHED STITCHING THE NET AROUND. NEXT WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO IS JOINING THE EDGES OF NET AFTER WRAPPING IT AROUND THE FRAME. SO WE ARE DOING THAT. TO STITCH THE EDGES, INSERT THE NEEDLE INTO A HOLE IN EDGE OF NET AND THEN TO THE HOLE IN OTHER EDGE LIKE THIS. REPEAT THIS . AFTER SEWING 5 TO 6 HOLE LIKE THIS, TIGHTEN IT BY PULLING THE THREAD LIKE THIS. AFTER TIGHTENING WE JUST PUT A FINAL KNOT ON THE LIKE THIS. THIS WILL NOW REMAIN STRONG. WE HAVE TO FOLLOW THE SAME PROCESS IN EACH 10 HOLES. SO WE HAVE COMPLETED SEWING FROM THAT END TO THIS END. SO NEXT STEP, LETS SAY AS FINAL STEP, HOLD ALL THE LEFT OVER PORTION OF THE NET TOGETHER AS SHOWN SO THAT IT CAN BE CLOSED USING A SINGLE THREAD. LETS DO THAT NOW. AS YOU SEE, TAKING A COUPLE OF HOLES, WE ARE GOING TO INSERT THE NEEDLE. NOW WE HAVE FINISHED INSERTING THE THREAD TO EDGE HOLES OF NET. YOU CAN SEE THE TWO ENDS OF THAT THREAD IN MY HAND. NOW IF WE PUL THE ENDS LIKE THIS, THE NET GETS JOINED UP FROM ALL SIDES TO THE CENTER WITHOUT LEAVING GAP IN BETWEEN. LET US SEE HOW TO TIE. FIRST GIVE A SIMPLE KNOT DON’T GIVE A STRONG KNOT. PUT A KNOT THAT CAN BE LOOSENED WHEN NEEDED. SO HERE WE COMPLETE THE WORK OF MAKING THE FISH TRAP. OUR FISH TRAP IS READY NOW. NEXT I WILL EXPLAIN HOW WILL FISH GET TRAPPED INSIDE THIS. THROUGH THIS SIDE, WE WILL FILL THE FOOD TO FEED THE FISH. AFTER FILLING, WE WILL DIP THIS IN SOME WATER BODY. TO EAT THE FOOD , FISHES ENTER INSIDE THIS NET THROUGH THE SMALL HOLE. ONCE FISHES ENTER, IT WON’T BE ABLE TO COME OUT. FISH’S UNIQUE BEHAVIOR IS THAT IT ALWAYS SEARCH THERE IS GAP OR HOLE IN SIDES OF NET. SO IT WON’T BE ABLE TO GET OUT THROUGH THE CENTER. THIS IS THE WORKING. TRAPPED FISH CAN BE TAKEN OUT THROUGH THE BACKSIDE BY LOOSENING THE THREAD. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE GIVEN A KNOT THAT CAN BE LOOSENED WHEN NEEDED. JUST LOOSEN THE KNOT AND OPEN SO THAT WE ARE ABLE TAKE FISH FROM THE BACKSIDE OF NET. FRIENDS, SO WE HAVE COMPLETED MAKING THE FISH TRAP. WE WILL NOW DIP THIS FISH TRAP INTO WATER. PUT SOME FOOD TO FEED THE FISH, DIP INTO WATER, COME NEXT DAY AND CHECK OUT. PLENTY OF FISH WILL BE DEFINITELY TRAPPED IN THIS NET. THAT IS WHY ITS NAMED ‘MEEN KOODA’. SINCE ITS RAINING AND WINDING HEAVILY HERE, WE WILL DIP AND KEEP THIS IN WATER AT NIGHT, WHEN THE RAIN SLOWS DOWN. SO WE ‘LL PUT SOME FISH FOOD AND DIP IN WATER. LETS WAIT FOR NIGHT. FRIENDS, EVEN IF WE WAITED TILL NIGHT FOR THE RAIN TO STOP, ITS LIGHTLY RAINING HERE WE ARE GOING TO DIP OUR TRAP INTO WATER. BEFORE DIPPING, WE NEED TO PUT SOME FOOD INSIDE. WE ARE PUTTING SOME PIECES OF CHICKEN INTESTINE IN IT. IT IS NOT MANDATORY TO USE CHICKEN INTESTINE, YOU COULD USE ANYTHING FISH EATS LIKE FODDER. NOW LETS DIP THIS IN WATER. BEFORE DIPPING, LOOK FOR A PLACE WHERE WATER FROM LARGE RIVER OR POND FLOWS TO THE STREAM. WE ARE DIPPING THIS IN THAT SORT OF AREA. SO WE ARE GONNA DIP THIS. WE HAVE TIED A LONG ROPE TO THE FISH TRAP NET. SO IT WILL BE EASY FOR TAKING OUT THE TRAP FROM WATER. WE HAVE TO KEEP A WEIGHT IF THE PRESSURE OF WATER FLOWING IS MORE. HERE FLOWING PRESSURE IS LESS. THAT’S WHY WE ARE DIPPING DIRECTLY. WE HAVE PUT THE FISH TRAP, NEXT WE HAVE TO TIE THE ROPE TO SOMETHING SO THAT FISH TRAP REMAIN HERE THOUGH THE FORCE OF WATER FLOW BECOMES HIGH. THUS WE HAVE TIED THE TRAP AND THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO DO THIS NIGHT. LET US GO AND SLEEP TONIGHT AND SEE WHAT IS THE RESULT WE GET FROM THE FISH TRAP. SEE YOU NEXT MORNING. WE PLANNED TO COME EARLY MORNING, BUT THE RAIN DIDN’T MAKE IT POSSIBLE. NOW ITS AFTERNOON. LETS CHECKOUT OUR FISH TRAP. AS THERE WAS NO HIGH WATER FLOW, THE TRAP HASN’T MOVED. [MURMURING] TURTLE! BEYOND FISH, CRAB AND TURTLE ALSO GOT TRAPPED INSIDE. LET US SPREAD A SACK AND DUMP ALL THESE TRAPPED ONES. LETS REMOVE THE KNOT. AFTER LOOSENING THE KNOT, WE CAN SEE THE FISHES INSIDE. AS THIS A TRAP, ONCE FISHES ENTER INSIDE, IT CAN’T ESCAPE. SO LET US DUMP THE TRAPPED FISH ONTO THE SACK WE HAVE TAKEN. YOU CAN SEE, WE HAVE DUMPED ALL THE FISHES ON THE SACK. THERE ARE FISHES, CRAB. LOOK, CRAB IS RUNNING. LETS CATCH HIM BEFORE HE FALLS INTO WATER. SO LETS CATCH HIM AND PUT IN THE BUCKET. SO LET US CATCH IT BEFORE WE GET BITE FROM IT. LETS PUT THE CRAB IN THE BUCKET THAT WE HAVE BROUGHT. LETS CHECK WHAT ARE THE FISHES WE GOT. THEY ARE WRITHING MAKING ‘PIRI-PIRI’ SOUND. THERE IS ONE TURTLE HERE. WE DON’T KNOW HOW THE TURTLE CAME IN. THERE ARE LARGE FISHES ALSO. THIS IS MALABAR LABEO. IT IS CALLED ‘THOOLLI’ IN OUR AREA. IT IS TRYING TO BREATHE. THEY ARE LOOKING VERY TIRED. THEY LIVE IN THE WATER AND HENCE, WHEN THEY COME OUT, THEY WOULD BE TIRED. BUT THE SMALL FISHES LIKE GIANT DANIO ARE WRITHING WELL. THIS BLACK FISH YOU SEE IS CALLED ‘MODHA’ (COBIA) THESE ARE CONSUMED FOR ASPHYXIA AS MEDICINE. THERE WAS A CRAB BITING IT’S TAIL. COBIAS CAN SURVIVE UP TO 4 HOURS IF WE PUT IT ON LAND. A SMALL CRAB IS RUNNING.
PRAVEEN, CATCH HIM. OH, IT IS TRYING TO BYTE. [CHUCKLES] YOU ARE SURELY GONNA GET A BITE FROM IT TODAY. CATCH IT FAST. THE FISH IS ALMOST GOING TO DIE SOON. LOOK AT IT’S MOUTH. FRIENDS, WE HAD CAUGHT FISH ONCE, WE ARE DIPPING THE TRAP AGAIN. THE SPECIALTY OF THIS TRAP IS WE CAN USE IT TILL IT IS DAMAGED. PUT SOME FOOD IN IT. AND DIP IT INTO THE WATER. THEN WHEN WE CHECK IT AFTER 1 OR 2 DAYS, IT WOULD BE FILLED WITH FISHES. SO FRIENDS, DEFINITELY LIKE THE VIDEO IF YOU ENJOYED IT. DISLIKE IF YOU DIDN’T ENJOY.
