NANFA-- Does the color of a dip net make a lot of difference?

Does anyone know how much of a difference the color of a dip net makes when
capturing fish? I'm looking to get all geared up for snorkeling and fish
collecting and I've seen orange, black, green, and white meshed dip nets
available. I'm thinking orange whould definately be bad - probably an
aggressive warning color. But I'm not sure what difference if any the other
colors would make.

Does anyone make a transparent mesh for a dipnet that a fish wouldn't even
