I used to rinse and strain my frozen fish food with my fish net. They get so used to it being around that when I went to catch the troublesome damsels, they basically swim in!

If you can't get them at feeding time, try at night after you turn the lights off. You can use a small flashlight that won't bother them too much. Another option if your tank is relatively small is to drain a large majority of the water out.
