Yeah the trap itself was concealed pretty well, *under* the river bank. 
There is a big tree that hangs right over the river, and I shoved the
trap under its roots since I frequently see minnows take refuge in there
when people approach.

My recovery line was bright white kite string and even though it was in
the weeds I suppose it would be visible to anyone approaching the bank
at this point.

I'll make up for my losses there on saturday when I'll have some seining
partners. :)
