Has anyone else tried using a monofilament dip net? I started using one
last summer and I've been able to catch fish that I used to consider
uncatchable such as riffle minnows while snorkeling. The handle is a
transparent plastic and the mesh is transparent monofilament line. You can
drop it down over the top of very wary fish and you can also swish it
through the open water to catch fish swimming in mid-water (especially if
you distract them from one side with an aquarium dipnet).

I ordered mine from A Plus Marine ( and I'm looking to
order another one along with some replacement netting. If anyone in NANFA
also offers such a production I would prefer to patronize their business
