Catch in one trap (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

net

'catch' is the definition.
(net can mean to catch)

'in one trap' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates a hidden word.
'NET' can be found hidden inside 'one trap'.

(Other definitions for net that I've seen before include "device to divide the court" , "Lattice" , "Fish-catching mesh" , "Overall; mesh" , "Clear profit or gain" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
