There's a cross that's probably gonna stop what's going on doggies welcome back to another video all right we're going to build a mud crab trap so yesterday a little bit of a walk back behind me there there's a creek.
Yesterday i was just exploring this new part of the island and um i walked up this little creek looked to my left looked to my right looked down and there was a bloody mud crab not even joking there was a mud crab in about this much water and i um tapped him with a stick on the back and he just went.
Full in defense murray had his claws in the air and i just went you're kidding so it's it's the next day so now i'm walking along the coast here and um i'm picking up bits of bamboo like this all we have today is a knife we've got a small machete that's it pretty much have to build this.
Crab trap out of everything we find on the coast i'll set it this afternoon and hopefully fingers crossed we can crack we can um catch that crab that i saw because it was actually a pretty bloody big sized crab and mud crab by far is my fight one of my favorite things to eat so um.
That's what we're doing today we're gonna build a mud crab trap purely out of material that we find on the beach so uh it's gonna be a bloody exciting one and tell you what if we get that crab that's gonna be even more exciting how good is this little bit of grass ocean's right there so um probably gonna.
Make camp here build the trap on the grass and then we'll walk up the coast a little bit of a punch that way to where i store the crab but um right now i've got a big job ahead of me just gathering materials along this coast and uh hopefully oh man if we can catch.
A cab it's gonna be good like i said i've got no materials all i've got in my backpack is one knife so let's put our brains to the test and see if we can build a bit of a trap so all right this is actually a lovely little part of the coastline you get.
This whole nice grass patch and then a beach which is just full of bamboo like this there's so much bamboo along this coast so i think that's going to be enough to start the trap i'm still not really exactly sure how we're going to build this trap i've got definitely definitely need to go find rope.
Fishing line some kind of a form of some sort of a material where i can bind all the traps together but um look it's gonna be bloody fun and if we get a crab well i'll tell you what that is gonna be so much boys so much better so probably just going to set up camp here on the nice grass we'll start cutting.
This bamboo up and um start this trap all right so the main things we're going to need right now is a big dirty stinking rock and this piece of bamboo which is super strong thick this is going to be our whacking stick and.
Like i said in here all i've got in this bag is a couple of batteries and this the knife that you guys always see so pretty much the aim of the game obviously the aim of the game is is to catch a crab but we cannot use any materials which are bought we can't use materials i.
Can't go find a shop and buy anything it has to be completely made out of materials on the beach that's what kind of keeps this stuff fun so um what i'm gonna do i'm gonna use this rock that whacker rock place that over there sit our bamboo up against it like this and then we're just going to push that.
Rock back a little bit more so that bamboo will wedge up against the rock and then this wacko stick i'm just going to start splitting all of this bamboo into little pieces probably about half an inch i'm guessing so um i'm going to be here for a while we're just going to split this bamboo.
There goes our bloody whack and stick but i'm just going to split this bamboo all the way down until i've got all of this squid so it's going to take a bloody long time all right so we've just gotten a little bit of a punch up and down the coast so this is the material that i'm going to use next this is going to be.
I'm guessing that this stuff here is going to be like the frame of the um trap we're trying to make so this is really really strong strong bamboo it's super thick it doesn't it's small but i mean it's thick by the internal wall of the actual bamboo itself is very very thick so we found a little bit of string on the.
Walk found a big clump of fishing line up there which i'm going to go get a little bit of later on but um for now i reckon this is going to be the frame of the um this will be the frame of the trap so slowly starting to come together i'm sort of putting it putting it together in my mind as i walk up and down the.
Coast picking up materials so think sort of think i know what i'm gonna make as i was walking down i'm now walking back up i found something and obviously if i might get a trap so in a trap you need some kind of a bite to lure the crabs into the trap we have no kind of bait on us so um.
I've come across this washed up on the beach and uh look if we find something better we'll use it but for now this is gonna be our bait it's a little bit rank it's a little bit weird um but look in this survival situation which obviously this isn't a survival situation but if it was and this we don't have anything on us.
Except for this knife so this is what we're going to use for bait unless we find something better that my friends is a washed up duck now i've got no idea what's going on with this poor little fella but looks like he's had a bit of a hard life there's a bit of string tied around his leg there.
Um obviously looks like he's been in the water for a while it doesn't smell good at all but that there is bloody good crab bait so what we'll actually do we'll get him out of this tideline because he's going to get washed away with the tired i'll chuck him up here sorry buddy we'll stick him under there in the shade.
And um maybe i'll cut his leg off later on we can stick that in the trap look i don't know so at least we don't have to worry about bait we've got a whole heap of bait now sitting in the shade underneath that concrete block so we've got one up on the bait now we just.
Need to keep finding string like this to tie this trap together because uh look i'm actually struggling to find string believe it or not in all this rubbish string fishing line it's all little sections like this i need long pieces to tie this up so first the first um headbutt of the day trying to.
Find string all right so pretty much what we're doing is tying these pieces of wood to smaller pieces of wood to these longer pieces of wood and um sort of tying them together so it's a sort of the shape of a frame so we're trying to get a frame looking a little.
Something like this and i've made one already so that's what it looks like it's just a bamboo frame four sides very sturdy very very strong it's been tied together looped together each corner there's that black twine we found so that's one side of the frame of the crab.
Trap so i'm just going to make one more of these which i'm doing now and then we can continue on the next start on the next step but it's the hardest thing to try to find the right sort of materials to tie it together i'm really lucky i found this black.
Plastic cordage stuff okay so this is what our trap is looking like so far we've got support beams on each side we've got one support beam in the middle there and um no this is going to bloody work it has to work.
I see the crab yesterday this is taking a fair while to get to this point purely because it's really hard to find the materials but that's pretty much what we're looking like right now obviously this side stay there this is gonna be one entrance and then we're completely cover the roof.
Cover the sides and that there is also going to be an entrance for the crabs to go in we're going to put our beautiful smelly disgusting piece of duck meat in the center of the trap and look it should be it should work i'm hoping it works.
I haven't had mud crab for a long time as you guys saw the last mud crab jumped on the end of my finger and i tell you what it's a bloody it's a bloody beautiful feeling so hopefully we can get have that happen again but oh man i've just been bitten by a [ __ ] mud crab.
Ah i don't know what to do ah [ __ ] man oh my god look at that dude oh this is how she's gonna you look something like this you're joking have a look starting to look like a bit of a trap finally all right this is epic i'm having the time of my bloody life right now.
This is exactly what i love doing and this is starting to turn into a full-on it looks like a bloody crap it's like we're going crayfishing it is um it had it has to work like obviously there's not always crabs around but yesterday i did see that crab so it just gives me proof that there are.
Crabs there and um look this thing is looking like a full-on craypot right now it's uh it's exciting and it's super fun too coming outside building something out of pieces of rubbish that you find on the beach it's coming along very very nicely all right these are the final four tie.
Downs to do on the frame and then we've got to create some kind of a some sort of like a i don't know how we're gonna do it like a trap or somewhere where when the crab crawls in it can't crawl back out so we've got four more of these to tie down and then um it is party time.
Have a look at this this is what she's looking like completely it is so strong it's so very very very strong obviously that's what it looks like from the inside i'm gonna put a big stinking bit of dead duck meat in there um look this has got to work it's um very strong it's actually.
It actually weighs a ton this is real heavy just about looks like a craypot back home but what i've got to do now somehow we're going to think of like a an opening on each side of the trap so this is where i want the crabs to walk in i want them to come in from this.
Entrance so i don't know what i'm going to do yet we'll make some sort of like a little ramp when it walks in it drops and then obviously it can't swim up and out because mud crabs can't swim like that so i'm thinking it's going to be pretty easy we'll just make a ramp so the crab can walk in drop.
Drop in and then it's sort of stuck in there because i know oh maybe one coming down one coming half with a gap in the middle i don't know i'm gonna go get it i'm gonna go for a walk try to find a little bit more of that cordage and um while i'm walking i'll look and look through the.
Rubbish see what we can find but i'm happy with this man she's looking she's looking good this is what the crab's going to see he's going to go in or duck meat and then oh see you later buddy have a go at that drain boat there's a bit of plywood that's been.
Washed up on the beach there so what we're gonna do because we don't have a bloody saw usually if you put enough little scratches into a bit of plywood you'll be able to snap it on a straight line sort of i've had a crack down there before but i thought i'd bring it up here and finish it off.
That should this is kind of moist wood so it should crack look at that just like that beautifully cut in two pieces so this is gonna come in very bloody handy well that's actually really good that's gonna go in there it's gonna ramp up like that.
That is perfect get that in there okay yeah the crab trap is completely finished we have got it to a point where i'm happy to leave it here overnight and um fingers crossed big dogs are inside in the morning but i'll show you guys the finished product it's pretty much what it looks like what.
I just showed you but have a look here i've got it up in a nice little stool show off our little masterpiece we've made and um look it should get us a crab if those crabs are still in there so have a look here she is in all of her glory bloody beautiful so like i said before this pin here you pull that pin out.
This door will drop so i can get the crabs out same on the other side with a bit of plywood pull the pin out the plywood drops it's very sturdy it's all bound together with these little bits of stuff we found on the beach this is all bound together with stuff we found on the beach and um.
What i'll do is i'll get the the duck meat and i'll tie the duck meat hopefully to this or to the bottom on the center so nothing from the side or from the side can be feeding on it you've got to go into feed so that's probably the whole point or we can tie from the top up here but um i'm going to go have a look at.
That duck now it's probably going to be stinking up a little bit i've got i've got no idea why that duck's dead i don't know how long it's been dead for it was definitely stinking on the nose when i moved it into the shade before so um it's gonna be interesting but that's.
What crabs do crabs are scavengers they're gonna love that kind of stink and smelling the feathers oh it's gonna be crap it's gonna be goodness for crabs so we'll go down there we'll um slice a little bit of the crabmeat uh the duck meat off stick it in there and then.
We're gonna somehow strategically get that trap all the way down the end of this big long beach without anybody seeing me because there are people around here and um i don't want them pillaging our mud crabs so that's the next step but it's been a fun day so far we've got the.
Crab trap and we're ready to go fill it up with a little bit of bait so this is what i live for so fun man come on you beautiful thing you can come over here and go through this sloppy leech infested water and i'll um we'll get the trap.
Maybe we'll stick it in this pandanus palm here hopefully no one takes it boy oh mozzies all over me already all right i'm going to leave the trap there have a go at that would ya what a time to be alive all right we'll leave the trap there and um we'll pan we'll punch up the.
Coast oh pandanus palm super prickly look at these little prickles in this thing they get stuck in your skin and they're not fun so i should um it's probably a good place to put the trap you know keep people from touching it but all right i'm gonna pack up my bag.
Clean up all those little bits of rubbish so it's off cuts and then i'll um take it to the creek where i'm gonna put the trap all right doggies we're on the move and um i'm gonna go have a look at this duck it's been in the sun kind of sun semi-sun semi-shade all day how's this right as soon as i walk away.
From the trap i don't know if you can see but old mate just here in the bamboo there he's um as soon as i stood up he stood up so that's not normal but it's all right i'll build another trap if he gets taken here's the duck i can i can smell this duck from here man check it out all right here he is he's been roasting.
In the sun for the last oh you know what i don't think i'm going to use it for bait that's oh you should smell it oh no that thing is on the nose all right we're not going to use that for bait i think um if we do catch this crab that i saw yesterday or a crab or even if you catch fish in that trap as well.
If we do catch something in that trap i do i am going to start a fire we're going to cook him up so i'm not really a big fan of eating a crab that we catch it's been eating a six week old hot stinking duck so if this was a survival situation 100 you chucked that in the trap and it would work because something like.
That would be an amazing bit of bait but as i said this is just a little bit of fun and um i don't want to eat a crab that's been eating that stinking old duck so punch up the coast and uh old mate's still over there why don't you touch that trap mate punch up the coast and we'll laugh i'll show.
You where i'm gonna put the trap all right so this behind me this creek here is what i'm going to start calling mud crab creek i don't even know if we're going to get a crab but this is where i saw that crab yesterday it was a size crab even for australian standards it would have been a size crab.
So that's very very rare to find big sized crabs here in indonesia and um i'll show you where i found it yesterday and uh i'll show you where we're going to bloody catch it so i come down here yesterday i was just exploring new little places what i did i just walked here pretty.
Much stood right here and i just looked left looked to the right i looked down here and literally this is actually this is actually the stick i poked it with there was actually a crab right here and uh so what i'm going to do.
This obviously holds crabs or holds a crab so what i'm going to do i'm going to grab that trap we're going to stick it underneath that tree there so it doesn't float or chuck a rock and obviously it's a bamboo trap it's going to float so we'll chuck some rocks in it wedge it under that tree there.
And uh bob's your bloody uncle we're going to get a crab hopefully but um what i'm going to do there's a lot of people here i'll show you how many people there are we got one bloke here we got one bloke here we got two people over there so um look all right so i'm definitely not going to.
Walk down the bloody beach with a big bamboo mud crab trap with all these people around because past experience tells me that for some reason people like to take people's traps that's just a way of life doesn't matter where you are in the world it's happened to me so many times in australia so i'm not taking the chance.
Here i'm gonna head home i'm actually probably only about an hour from where i live in bali because obviously this is a little bit of a busier beach so i'm gonna head home yesterday i actually got a fish frame from a friend so i'm gonna use that i'll bring that back and we'll come back this afternoon we'll.
Set the trap on dusk or maybe in the dark a little bit little bit of a secret uh trap session and then obviously we'll come back in the morning but i'll see you guys today what's this afternoon at sunset and we'll set the trap and i'm bloody excited about this.
See in the afternoon doggies all right we are back on location and um i've just made it down in time it is looking the whole sky is going starting to go pink orange the sun's out there it's just about to set we have got a couple a couple of cheeky little tins because look it wouldn't be a bloody mud.
Crapping mission without a couple of cheeky little bing tang so cheers doggies we are gonna get ourselves a crap but have a look at this i just wanted to come down before it was dark to enjoy the sunset we've got this like where are you somewhere here there's a.
Little epic little glow on the sunset out there down here everything's orange the white balance is absolutely wigging out on this camera because um it looks like it's orange as hell but this is the this is what we're dealing with right now so where i want to put the crab pot.
Hold on a minute oh that's good where i want to put the crab pot this is welcome to trying to do stuff on busy beaches they are having a ceremony i'll show you guys there's probably about i don't know 15 30 15 to 30 people here so i'm not too sure if you guys can see.
But i just over where i'm going to put the crab pot they're having a ceremony so there is a whole lot of people there and then if you look this way there's a whole heap of people sitting up the beach the trap is up there i've hidden the trap up there so there's a lot of people.
Watching sunset so this is a very very busy beach right oh i'm gonna sit here enjoy this absolute ripper of a sunset and we'll see you guys when it's dark all right here we go we are working under the cover of darkness that sun has completely gone so was about 15 beers.
Not really i only had three beers but um love a couple more but all right the sun's gone we are working under the cover of darkness and i'm gonna go get the trap now it better bloody be there i'm just about to cross that sludgy sludgy water i can't see much with this torch in my face but um the cross is sludge a bit of water and.
The trap better bloody be there is it still there yes it is that's what i'm talking about that is a bloody good sight pandanus palm saved him all right come out here oh jesus christ it's not bloody white i'll give you the hot tip there we go a trap.
I'm so excited to get this thing in the water man let's go all right there's a couple of little dribbles of rain right now so i think that storm that was brewing out there slowly pushing in which is um that's all good a little bit of rain never hurt anyone but.
What i'm going to do now before we get there i'm going to quickly chuck on this fish frame unfortunately we we're not going to be using the duck for bait we're going to be using the fish frame because um like i said before that duck was cooking in the sun i don't know how long it's been dead for.
I don't know what it died from so i've got a fish frame from one of the boys and i'm going to chuck that in actually i'll show you the fish frame now we'll tie it up so once we get there we can quickly just slap it onto the tree and be done with it so we'll show you guys what we're.
Going to use to fight for this big mama crab here she comes a couple of body rain drops so this is what we're going to be using for bait this is just a little groper i think back in australia would call this like a honeycomb cod.
But in the ovaries they call them groper beautiful eating fish so one of the boys went out fishing the other day ultralight jigging he got about he got a shitload of these so he come over the other day he made a little barbecue and um unfortunately we're not using the duck.
We'll use this i know where it's been i know it's healthy i know it's fresh i know it's clean so what we're gonna do with this hopefully it can fit down that gap oh here we go squeeze him in there there he goes and we're just gonna put this in right in the dead center of the trap so um.
It doesn't so when the crab hopefully the crabs when they come they can come from each side they can come from the top they can't get it so it forces them to go into the entrances that we've made that's the whole idea of this whole entire trap all right here we go so i've got two rocks.
These obviously gonna go i was originally hey yep there's a bug for dinner i was originally gonna put these rocks inside the trap because obviously this is made of bamboo so 100 she's going to be a floater she's going to float for sure so i was going to put rocks inside but i.
Thought you know what we'll put them it's a very sturdy trap like i could probably stand on this thing it's actually very very solid so i'll put one on one end this one on the other end and um i reckon we're going to be on that is a bloody that is a bloody good sign isn't it.
Have a good like that that's a little crab he's hanging on for dear life right there look at this he doesn't know he's in my hand yet oh now he does there he goes but that's one crab already oh oh they got a dragon flying distressed playing like.
Here going to life going on the ice there you go man look at that all right so i agree all right this is probably about where we want this trap to sit have a look at that that's just floating by itself there so definitely need those rocks on top.
All right she's going down have a look at that you wouldn't even bloody know that the trap was there would ya that's epic so it's probably about two meters off where i wanted to put it but it's a little bit shallower than i thought but i'm definitely past balls deep now.
And um that's the first rock there this one so the trap sitting on an angle like this completely going down we've got one truck we've got one opening facing here one opening facing the big deep waters but um i'm pretty happy with that eye it's.
Seems pretty solid it's not muddy water it's quite sandy to be honest there's one all right i'm happy all right here it is that big storm is set in all right this is exactly why i put those other two rocks on that bloody thing because.
If this rain keeps up that river is going to break its bank for sure so um i've got no idea where i'm walking right now um i'm excited to see this thing in the morning we'll come back at sunrise hopefully we've got a crab in there i've got a massive steam back to where i parked my motorbike it's so far up the.
Coast here so um i'm gonna be bloody soaking wet i'm loving it i love this [ __ ] it's so good i will see you guys in the morning and um hey if we're gonna crab we're gonna crab if not we'll just do this day after day after day until we get one and i have got absolutely no idea where i'm walking all.
Right see you guys in the morning much love whoa oh good bloody morning to ya it is not even six o'clock in the morning it is a beautiful day still got this big storm there's a big mama storm in the background here that thing's starting to brew and push.
This way so we've obviously had a little bit of rain last night the river where i put the trap has broken its banks as you can see behind me here that was not like this yesterday so obviously last night there was a shitload of rain inland and it's coming.
Down pushing the water out to sea so we'll see what's happened to the trap hopefully she's stayed in position and um i don't know look it's going to be bloody i don't have i don't have high hopes of catching crabs here but it's a little bit of fun i know from.
Experience that it is a bloody hard to catch any kind of fish crabs in this area so um i don't know i've always got that little bit of hope deep deep deep deep down inside me so um let's go we're very close to pulling the trap and hopefully fingers crossed we can start to fire up.
And cook some big beautiful crab for breakfast but um all right let's have a look so that is morning one of setting the trap she is empty there is nothing inside the fish the bait's still looking good it's actually held up beautifully overnight.
Nothing's happened to the trap except there's nothing in the trap um nah she's empty so um damn but you've got to expect that fishing where i am fishing i'm going to come back here i will come back here the next day the next day see what these.
Crabs don't know is i've got all the time in the bloody world and i am going to do this day in day out day in day out until we get something in this pot so persistence is key and um that's what i'm going to do i'm going to persist and we are going to get a crab in this pot but.
She looks like she's held up pretty bloody well have a look at it there's not one little bit of damage on her she's looking good obviously that bamboo is all soaked up now so it'll be a little bit heavier than before we've still got our fish frame beautifully tied up there oh well welcome to the bloody world of.
Mud crabs i i'm to set this pot again i'll hide it a little bit today and then um look we'll come back either this afternoon or tomorrow morning and i'm just going to keep repeating this process i'll bring new bits of bait down i'll keep stocking it up and we'll just.
Keep repeating this process over and over again and look we might not even get a crab in a week we might not even get a crab in a month we might get a crab tomorrow who knows but this is this is what i love doing this is fun and um i'm gonna stick it back in the water and i'll see.
You guys when we're back down here either this afternoon or tomorrow checking it again hopefully we can get a big fire going chuck some crabs on the coals and um that's the goal anyway all right doggies i'll see you when we're back here checking the pot this afternoon tomorrow morning sometime.
Yo yo we're back okay a little bit of an update i haven't been here for three days so um after we checked the pot last time i got a call from one of the boys he wanted to go out fishing on one of these little islands off of bali so the last two days i've been fishing and.
Um holy [ __ ] i've got some epic footage to roll on in the next couple of videos because it was one day of the most smoking fishing like popping for gts it was so sick so i haven't actually had time to come down and check the trap so the trap has been in the water now.
For i think three days look up today is the third day that i haven't checked it so we're on location a little bit of a walk to get to the trap and um i am so excited so it's actually been properly sitting in the water today's a beautiful day beautiful sunny blue sky and um.
We're going to check the trap right now so i'm i'm fizzing for this man it's been a good couple of days if we get crabs holy [ __ ] this is just going to put icing on top of the cake and you can see that people have actually been here today they're like fresh footprints.
Before the water was way up here so obviously hasn't rained too much and um yeah there's fresh footprint there a couple here so our pot is in here out there still so let's go get it this is um i've been waiting for this for a long time i have been thinking about grabbing this.
Pot the day since i walked away from it and um yeah i don't know let's just let's just see what's in there this is super fun all right let's go make me proud oh come on baby come on oh no there is um we haven't done any good here doggies i don't think so.
Ah that's um sad very saddening would have thought after three days of being in there that it would have got something but there's just nothing in it oh my [ __ ] god check this out i am i'm blind have a look at this can you see what that is that's a that's.
A crowbar i've got to stop swearing oh that's a crab bra no why we got a crab oh there's people everywhere why we got a crab it's not big it's only a little bubba i i am absolutely fizzing balls right oh i legit thought we never had something in.
It and um prove me wrong it's only little it's a baby little it's not really little actually but it's definitely not the crap i check this out i'll get you zinnia with the crab have a look at this that there is a minecraft you are joking.
Here's a bit of bait it's pretty chewed up it's a little oh it's not too bad like stinks but yo we've done it i can't believe we've got a crab in the truck it's definitely by far that is not the crab that i saw here two to three four days ago but um nonetheless.
Let's get him out of here i am absolutely fizzing i actually thought we had nothing i was like fully i was like floating on a cloud i just my hopes went down i thought we've got nothing in the trap and then there's a little fella let's get him out and i'll show you this crab all right before i show you guys the.
Crab um we had a little bit of an audience down here just then because obviously i thought we had no crab then i found the crab in the bottom of the trap and i was just flipping balls i was so excited i was screaming and um we've got this local guy behind me there was about four or five guys here checking out the little crab.
And then they've all taken off but this local guy builds um cray pot cray pot traps out for the ocean and he's showing me what he does for a craypot so this is something that i love about different countries sucking in the local knowledge like what is teaching me right now you will.
Never ever learn in a book and um this is the kind of thing that is so valuable so i'm gonna have a yarn with this block he's showing me about how he makes traps how he makes crayfish traps out of bamboo he puts them out in the ocean so um i'm gonna see what he does see what he's saying then we'll get the crab out the.
Crab is still in there right now there he is hello darling there's the crab in there there he is have a look but um this guy's showing me what he does when he makes traps he doubles the top up so instead of me i'll just put the one single and bound that he's saying.
Use this thicker bamboo so this is what he's making thicker bits of bamboo this is what i love man it's about this i don't even know this guy from boris open he's showing me the ways the local balinese ways of making traps so this is pretty epic but look at that wait we got one all right pay close attention to what.
I'm about to show you because this you will never read in a book you'd never find on the internet pay close attention to this so what is this this is a palm tree yeah yeah palm palm tree yeah yeah so this is how the indonesian people back in the day used to make rope then.

A crab trap and then you learn some epic epic local knowledge all right i'll get this little crab crab out i'll show you guys and then um i think i'm gonna sit down here with old mate all afternoon and start picking his brain about some survival stuff so there is a little muddy that we got he's not big he's definitely not big but.
Like i'm super stoked it's a male you can see it's a male from that v there he's an epic little crab the one that i saw was literally two to three times bigger than that so this is only a little baby pretty epic to catch it in a crack in a trap that i've made purely out of rubbish off the beach.
And um i'm gonna put this bloke back he'll be able to swim another day grow a little bit bigger anyone else in this country would probably eat this crab i'll um i'll let him go i should give it to this do you want this yeah my gun yeah yeah yeah you can have it i'll give it to this bloke for um.

The other day which was off its head so much love thank you for watching and you can make traps out of rubbish which catch crabs yeah doggies i've seen the next one all right so there's a saying and the saying goes what a time to be alive and um that saying is the perfect saying for this exact moment right now because.
I've just spent the last hour probably hour 45 maybe even pushing two hours with that local guy down there down the beach and um what an absolute man of knowledge he was so he is like a security he's the security of that section of beach he's lived there his whole life.
He taught me how to make rope out of that palm tree taught me how to make rope out of a coconut husk taught me two different different edible trees that i had no idea were edible taught me how to make a i um showed me how to make a lobster trap or a crayfish trap similar to how i made my trap but.
Way more reinforced for the ocean where it's getting pounded by waves look it's things like this and it's people like that which make traveling different countries so bloody epic that was amazing i'm so very grateful for meeting that guy and um i'm just absolutely frofting right now.
