On January 12, 2017 Ireland released a set of 8 computer-vended stamps from its 9th definitive series "A History of Ireland in 100 objects". One of these stamps features a Late Mesolithic Period fish trap found in a bog in Clowanstown. This relic now can be seen at the National Museum of Ireland in Dublin.

From the 100objects.ie website, "It does not look like much: some small, smooth interwoven sticks embedded in the turf from a bog at Clowanstown in Co. Meath. The bog, however, was once a lake, and the woven sticks are an astonishing survival: part of a conical trap used by early Irish people to scoop fish from the lake or catch them in a weir. Radiocarbon tests date it to between 5210 and 4970 B.C. The Irish trap could be called a classic design: similar items continue to be used around the world."

In fact, to see a similar fish trap which isn't 7000 years old, go back to page 7 of this thread and you will find a modern one from Togo.

I am too new to have a fish stamp collection, but as a fishing aficionado, I think I might just need to start! Nora.

An interesting ice-fishing stamp with a touching story. Wan Xiang (Ad.180-268) is a famous political figure in the Han, Wei and Jin Dynasties. When he was a kid, his step-mother was very cruel to him. But he doesn't hate her, instead, when she was ill , he went on fishing in extremely cold weather and helped her mother recover. His many filial deeds moved many people, and later he became a very successful political figure.

Howard Richoux has an outstanding website of fish and game stamps of the US States.

Here is the link for the fishing stamps, many of which have fish as part of the design:

That is a deep rabbit hole to dive into for those who just have to have all fish stamps!!!
