Reports that nylon gill nets fish more efficiently than linen or cotton gill nets led to the use of nylon netting for sampling fish populations at Clear Lake in 1953 (Carlander, 1953) . Since an increase in catch per unit effort was obtained with the nylon nets in 1953, both nylon and linen nets were fished in a comparative manner in 1954 and 1955 so that quantitative estimates of their relative efficiency could be made.
