Listening to all the advice on what will stop my heron from scoring my new fish, I purchased a net that works like the tents I am very familiar with...poles, and tie downs. I realized my weird shaped pond was not the best fit for a rectangle net design so I modified it by using my own pole extenders made from sprinkler system risers. The structure is now up and I just need to get the net over it. It should protect the guys and girls but will make pond maintenance a bit harder. See pictures for the progress.

Nice neat job @MajorDan ! I don't net my pond, but I do know that lots of people leave the net up off the ground a bit so small critters like frogs and birds don't get trapped. That also might make it easier for you to reach under if you need to.

Will try to get the net over it this evening when it cools down. It has already cooled down to 85F.

For those interested in this net here is where I got it:
And I bought extra ground stakes and net stakes and have used them all to secure the bottom of the net so small critters, birds, etc do not find there way in and get trapped. It is still a work in progress as I am a big believer in continuous improvement.
I need to put my aerator back in pond and finally decide where to put the air pump so I will have to get under the net for that which may evolve into some new improvements. Continuous fun in support of five gold fish...go figure.
