As a shrimp: The net has to much resistance to the running water. The net scares the shrimp away due to it being bright white. Also, you can;t see if the shrimp is going into the net. My recommendation to Shurhold is to modify thier net as follows to be a totally awesome Shrimp net! Use a clear mono net of about 3/8 to 1/2 inch mesh. I would love to test thier product with these changes. I think it would be a 5 star product.
