"Attached are a couple of photos taken at our shoot last weekend. We leave our traps out at all times and the river flooded the field to a depth of at least 4 ft. When the level dropped to allow us onto the shoot we were amazed that after a bit of cleaning and greasing all the traps worked first time. The ABT which we purchased at the beginning of the year was completely submerged under at least 6 ft of water for three to four days including the electronics. The only problem with it was a fuse has blown when we tried it first time. We have a total of 20 Laporte Traps (185`s, Arm Rabbit and single stack 85) and would highly recommend Laporte Traps to anyone for robustness and reliability."
