Sometimes it is not as easy to alnd a fish, especially one that hasnt been played to exhaustion and is still hot, without a net.
Pictures too. Pictures in the net are cheesy, I know, but sometimes you just want to snap a picture of a fish to show your buddies that you aren't a total failure.
I agree about the majority of fish though, most fish I catch just get shaken off the hook and set free with no real handling. Some are punted back, but this is a story for another time.

Or does putting the fish in the net officially complete the "landing" process for trout?i can get a fish in the net sooner than in hand...

Also, if you fish tandem and multiple fly rigs, landing a flailing fish attached to several other flesh finding hooks is a bad idea without a net.
