That is interesting, and looks difficult to make.  Good way to catch minnows from what I read.  Do you use bait in that and lay it on it's side?

As a brief aside Tony, I was wandering around on the "net" the other day and got to a site with a joke section.  I started reading jokes and finally was curious who posted them and the first one I looked at was you.  It is the second time I ever saw someone I know on another forum.  You know a lot of clean but funny jokes.

It is  plain tube netmaking using a 3/16" gauge.  The funnel shape forms when decreases are made in the netting causing the tube to narrow in circumference. 
In use it is placed on its side.   I have small wads of bread or cheese as bait.
When I come across a good joke I pass it on.  Tony
