First, keep the fish in the net and in the water. Rubber mesh helps protect the fish. Wait for the fish to settle down so you can quickly get your hands under it. Wait until the photo is ready to be taken and quick lift holding the trout over the net and over the water so if it wriggles and is dropped, it lands in the net or in the water and not knocking itself out on rocks. Do not grab it by the gill plates or stick your fingers in the gills for an extra hold. Do not hold it out of the water for an extended time. If it is not working out, just let it go and practice more on the next one. These steelhead are always to be released and should be treated so.
