I currently have a tool which is a long pole with a large net on one end. Does anyone make a tool like this but with a large bag on it instead? I need to transport my koi between the pond and a temp tub to be transported 2 miles away to my other house.

I'm trying to find something I can catch the koi with but have them remain in water while I walk across the property to place them in the temp holding tub.

I can't find anything but I know this tool must exist.

Thanks!!!

Thanks Dave, I will read through those.

In the meantime I received my koi sock net and noticed that it is a sock but then at bottom it is a white net and there is no bottom to the sock. Am I supposed to tie it off or something?

No you hold the open end in your hand and scoop up the Koi with the rim end head first, to release the fish you just open the end your holding in your hand and the fish slides out head first. This way the fish's scales and fins are not damaged by sliding tail first out of the net on release, head first in, head first out; watch the videos listed above.
