I don't know what the "best" way is, but I'll post what I've been doing
to see if someone has a better idea.
I never remove the fish from the net. I don't totally remove the net
from the water. I gently hold the fish just enough to keep it still,
with the body (AND GILLS) still underwater. When I pull off the
external parts of the anchorworm, that goes on a napkin until I am done
with all the fish and then I throw out the napkin. My hands never touch
the fish directly, and the fish doesn't leave the water. Once I turn
them loose they usually go right back to business as usual.
