That doesn't look like something to catch fish with.
It reminds me of the old-fashioned candle snuffer.

It's glass, so it could break if not careful.

I'm joining in on this conversation since I'm curious as to what it is too. Looks almost like a CO2 lily pipe diffuser.

Edit: I was dying to know so I googled it. It is a fish catcher! Kordon sells a plastic version. Here's a link to their website about the item.

I thought it was a co2 diffuser, but I noticed once I looked closer, it was not.
How on earth might it catch fish?

That is a "Kordon Fish Catcher" (sold by Ken's Fish). I use one to scoop my male mouth brooding bettas when they are holding. Mine is made of plastic.

Since its made of glass, the fish are supposed not to see it coming and its meant to be easier to catch fish... very popular in Europe in the 20th century!

Yeah, you basically suck the fish in and dont chase it through the tank.
