Default Prep time before fishing

A friend of mine taught me something very important when I was first learning to fly fish. He'd used a very small net, dipped it into the river and caught whatever bugs were floating by. Then he'd pull out flies to see what matched and then started fishing.

Wow, I had never thought of that! I'm sure you thanked your friend, and now I'm thanking you - it must have been a very fine net, I assume? How long would it take him to catch enough bugs to make a comparison?

After reading this, I did a search and found that you can make a little screening device using a couple of wooden dowels and some fine mesh material attached to each end. Great way to catch bugs in the water.

I was thinking of using something like the fine mesh net that they sell to take small fish out of fish tanks when you want to change the water. I've actually got a couple around the house for our tank.

That would probably do the trick very nicely. You can use Lovetofish's idea and use a couple of small wooden dowels and attach it to the netting. Roll it open when you use it and then roll it up when you're done.
