Tips for Enjoying Goldfish Scooping

  • A scoop which has Japanese paper on the frame is called a "poi".
  • Hold the unframed flat side upward, which does not scoop water.
  • First, put the whole poi into the water. (If the paper on the poi is only partly wet, it will be easily torn.)
  • Whenever you put the poi into the water, make sure you put it in at an angle in order to reduce water resistance.
  • Try to put your poi in the water parallel with the flow.
  • Scoop a goldfish from its head.
  • Try not to let its tail touch the paper part. (The movement of the tail might rip the paper.)
  • Pull out the poi from the water at an angle, and slip the goldfish into the bowl.
