Perfect Dip Net

I have seen the perfect (almost) dipnet.  It was hand made.  The rim 
was made of stainless steel and pentagonal in shape, with a flat 
bottom (about 2' across) and perpendicular sides (the top tapered 
towards the handle).  The net was 1/8" mesh and about 3' deep, and 
attached to the rim via dozens of split rings (the net itself never 
came in contact with rocks, etc.).  It was removable, and the handle 
(about 4') srewed apart, so the whole thing was easily transportable. 
 The only thing I didn't like was the heavy iron pipe used as a 
handle.  Aluminium would be better.

It was great for dragging through riffles.
