    I've read where a pan net, is best for guiding koi into a container / tub, you have floating on it's side in the pond.

    http://www.watergarden.org/Large-Koi-Net-Pondmaster This link is an example of what I'm describing and they come in various sizes.

    They are pricey. I don't have one, I put on my waders, lower the pond water significantly and use my regular old pond net from our local fish hatchery. The koi I'm catching are small, as I do this every year.

    Thank you. I will look into that. I know it is going to be difficult, as I don't intend to do a big drain to catch them.

    I think having 2 people, when you do this, would make it easier. One can use the net to guide the koi, to the container the other person is holding half submerged in the pond. I'm anxious to hear how it works out for you.
