The book will now be in your left hand, and you can click on the ‘Traps’ options to view all of the traps you can build. Here, you will also see the option for ‘Fish Trap.’ To craft it, you will need a total of 25 sticks. Yes, this may sound like a lot, but you don’t have any other choice.

Thankfully, sticks are relatively easy to find compared to some of the other items in Sons of the Forest, such as 3D Printers. Sticks can be found scattered across the forest. But if you can’t find many of them on the ground, you can use the Axe from your inventory to chop down small trees. These will provide you with enough sticks to build the Fish Trap.

After you acquire enough sticks, find a body of water or go to a river. Once there, open the Guide Book by pressing the ‘B’ key and access the Traps section again. Then, click on the Fish Trap, and a white outline structure will appear in front of you. When that happens, keep pressing the ‘E’ key until your character is done with making the Fish Trap.
