Using a Koi Sock Net:
Step one: Hold the Waterproof Fish Transfer Net with the handle in one hand and the open end in the other. Lower the head of the net into the water. Step two: Slowly move the net over the Koi. It is best to have the Koi enter the net head first. This makes releasing the fish both easier and safer. Step three: Once the fish is safely in the net grasp the open end securely to seal it and, keeping the sock net horizontal, gently lift the Koi out of the water. Step four: Gently lower the Koi into the water you are transferring it too. Keep the head of the net out of the water while keeping the fish horizontal. Release your grip on the open end of the net to allow the fish to swim out.
