Default Miniature Screen for bugs

Does anyone here know of or use a "pocket" type screen to collect a few bug samples when fishing.

I am certainly not in to getting a masive siene on poles and dredging the river for bug surveys. I will probably never be able to name a underwater bug. I just was wondering if their is a compact screen , seine whatever that you can whip out of your pocket or pack / vest , dredge the water and go oh it looks like a "insert midge / emerger name" and is this size ?

I'm not sure how small you want to go, but I use one of these quick-seines... Quick-Seine™ Seine Net: Seine Net Improves fly fishing, fly tying, entomology. It is compact and super easy to use. I'm also no authority on aquatic insects, but this really helps me in choosing the correct nymph sizes.

Bend a coat hanger to shape and stretch some pantyhose over it. It might not last all that long but if you can use the vinyl coated it should last a bit.

Thanks you guys

Great suggestions, maybe I can figure out what bugs are in the water without setting up a entimilogocal dig site. Quick and easy sounds good to me

I do this except I use my trout net for the frame
This way, not only do you have a bug seine, but if you leave the hose on, it will protect your net bag from getting snagged in the underbrush

Saw a neat home-made one, where someone took a $1 flip-top travel container for a bar of soap, cut the bottom out of it, and glued a small piece of nylon screen in the the bottom. It was small, fit well in a pocket, and you could close the "catch" in it, so that you could safely save it (without crushing it) until such time that you could look it over closely to match a hatch, or open a textbook to properly identify it.

Haven't made one for myself yet, but it's on my list of "things to do". Somehow, my wife keeps moving "finish back porch construction." above all of my fishing related things to do....

I recently read a blog where the angler was using the mesh bucket covers available in the paint section at Home Depot as a bug seine. These covers are designed to filter out particulates in the blended paints & are the right mesh size for straining bugs off the water. They fit over a net.

After you are done with your straining experiments, just rinse them off in the stream and refold into your vest, chest pack, wader pocket, waist pack or backpack.

Well this puts me in the "duh" category. My father has owned a very succesful painting business for the last 40 years. I spent many years running down ladders to strain paint through exactly this

Great ideal, cheap, easy could wad up small enough to fit anywhere
