Best of my ability, try and not touch the fish, fairly easy with a fly. Land fish as quickly as possible, I revive fish before a photo so if he squirms free he's good to go. Keep them out of the water as little as possible, I will keep in net while getting photo gear ready. Have recently updated that to having the camera in my pocket ready to go.

I read somewhere that a person should hold their breath for as long as a fish is out of water, probably not quit accurate, but I think it makes a great rule of thumb. In my mind 30 seconds is to long.
