    Robert,

    Check out this site. http://www.fishnetco.com/fishacc.htm They have the plastic throats available. I think it would be rather easy to build the slat trap using those. Seems I read the specs on the slat openings somewhere, but don't remember what it was. Been years since I ran any of those, but I think most were made from freshly milled white oak. I would love to be able to run some, but the license for me being from TX is too high to justify it.

    Will
