Indians catch the white-fish with a scoop-net, like a landing-net, with a long handle.
Then we remember, with a flash of despair, that we have no landing-net!
A landing-net is a small net mounted on a iron ring, which is fastened, like the landing-hook, to the end of a handle or pole.

Thus he remained for a full minute, gasping like a fish in a landing-net.
