As tough as it is, I will net a fish myself if I feel/know the person with me is inexperienced, for exactly that reason or from them swinging the net all over the place.

But..... He has to get first hand experience somehow, mistakes = more knowledge on what not to do.

Maybe you should post this in the tutorials section also :D.

When I first came home to the ranch to manage it, I used the old nets hung up in the woodhouse. Blew every one of them out. String nets, even if kept off the floor, just don't keep for decades. I lost more than a couple bigs ones as they tore through the bottom of the net. In order to untangle the mess from the snags (and I always fish in snags), I had to cut the fish loose. This year I bought a few new nets when they went on sale.
