You can try the bottle trap. I used it on a sixline recently & had it in about 10 mins.

Take a clean plastic bottle (I used a pop bottle, but you'll need a bigger opening, as big as the fish.

Cut the funneled top off & place it inverted inside and tape it shut. Tie fishing line on so you can pull it out. Dump some appealing food in & wait. Once he goes in, it'll be hard to get back out.

Yeah, angels are pretty quick, and not dumb. Lol. We had to take pretty much all the rock out to catch my half black angel a while back after it was eating all my coral. That Was a mess. Now he's in the FOWLR. Good luck!!!
