Sounds like you just need to practice more on the timing of your release. The longer you can make the bottom section of your net when you make it up makes for easier opening as it's the centrifugal force of the lead line that opens the net. I have to make up my net shorter when throwing over a high railing. I'm also very old school, having been throwing nets for about sixty years and still put the lead line in my mouth. I've gotten used to the taste of polluted water and the flesh eating bacteria actually seem to clean up my cavities.
