Re: NFC: My collecting trip...

Hey James

An umbrella net is a net shaped pretty much like an umbrella, with the
handle being a chord, and sticking up and out of the water... This may
or may not make sense:

That would be the shape of the umbrella.....  Now,  this is dropped into
the water, usually with some bait in it.  When fish enter it, it is
lifted up, which causes the umbrella, by connection of pull-arms, to
close.  The fish wind up inside.  

This is similar to a drop net, and often called an umbrella drop net. 
It, however, works upside down from a drop net.
