The fishing pole trap is a common trap in the Ruy Lopez that has an extremely high success rate. It is a very tempting trap and many players have fallen for it. It is in the Ruy Lopez, Berlin Defense. Here it is:

White can refute it with d4 though and also Nf6 but the good thing about this trap is that it works perfectly fine even if white doesn't fall for it since you will still have a pretty OK position. The Berlin defense is a interesting opening and if you want more traps check out the Kostic Trap and Mortimer Trap also made by me. Enjoy and have fun!
