That's OK, I realize that words failed me. But I do have some really good
slides of BG working with the net which would immediately describe its
workings. I have to get these slides scanned, and should probably post them
on the fundulus web page (
updated yesterday). One of the shots has a bluenose shiner (welaka) inside
the net, a nice looking fish even using only a 50 mm lens.
