First morning: time to net fish at House Pond, put them in the blue holding tank then move them to a new home at Turkey Pond.
Owners, Leslie and Tim, look on as Brian shows them a cast net.
Robert is an expert Net Cast fisherman.
This is the first photo in a sequence showing the net being thrown.
The net flies through the air in a near perfect circle.
Note the weights on the bottom of the net. They will carry the open net to the bottom of the Pond, capturing the fish in the radius of the net.
Captured Fish, ready for a new home.
Here is looking at you!
About to be put into the big blue oxygenated tank for transport to Turkey Pond.

Every fish counts, no matter the size.
Robert knows exactly when and how to release the net.

This Osprey is flying over Lower Sanctuary Pond, it looks like it is heading to Turkey Pond, where the game fish are being relocated. There are couple of photos that show the nesting sight later in this gallery.
