I am new here. On this thread:http://sullivansline.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=15898
The moderator Hal said of soft catch traps: "...they are more expensive to purchase, harder to prepare, and more expensive to maintain."
I am inquiring about the "prepare" part. What are the differences between preparing conventional traps and preparing soft catch ones (e.g. do I have to take the rubber off before boiling them, dye the rubber differently, etc.)? Can anyone point me to a straightforward set of instructions?
(I also realize from reading the thread linked to above that soft catch traps are controversial. I take no position as to their superiority, inferiority, effectiveness, etc. Let's just say that in order to keep certain people happy I need to use them in this instance).
Advice and guidance much appreciated.
