Dingori is a barrel shaped fishing trap, kept immersed in water. It has an opening where bamboo splits are interwoven with the help of cane. The fish can only enter through this entrance which acts as a valve. The other side has a small door through which fishes are brought out. Snails are cut into pieces and kept inside the Dingori as bait to lure the fish into it.
