Re: NANFA-- collecting net colors - which is best?

I have only just started dyeing these nets green when the last batch of new
nets came in about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I've used a green net the grand total of
"1" time. There was a school of Notropis maculatus near the bottom of the
backwater area and a few Fundulus notti at the surface, doing their top-minnow

I tossed the net beyond my targets and quickly hauled it in, and got only the
large male F. notti. The N. maculatus disappeared into the heavy submergent
vegetation. I didn't waste a lot of time at this particular spot because I had
other sites to visit.

Unti I started reproducing my original white shiner scoop, white was the only
color that I had and it did very well for me on all kinds of killifish,
brackish water species and tons of shiners. One good thing about the white color,
as Martin stated, is that you can see the minnows swim in front of the net.

I do have one light brown, 2 greens and 2 whites in stock ready to go
scoopin' however!
