When using a net to grab the fish, make sure you secure the fish in the net and then point the handle straight up towards the sky.
If you try to lift the fish with the net parallel to the water, you will break or weaken your net.
Make sure the net is perpendicular to the water so you can lift up and over whatever obstacles are in the way.
Be sure to put the net down quickly and remove the fish as soon as possible.
This is to prevent harming the fish and you can get the hook and line clear to avoid it tangling with the net.
When releasing the fish, give the fish a moment to rest or give them a head start so water runs through their gills quickly and they regain their strength.
