I tried that but he wouldn't even go near the net 

just wait until feeding time. it will go up to get the food,and you can net it. it helps if you use there favourite treat instead of just regular flakes

You've probably tried this but all clowns host on something, whether a sandbed, power head, coral or anemone. They go to sleep at night, hovering over this host point, keep lights off, use a background light like a coffee table lamp in the back ground to light your way. Should be a breeze.

I've used this product in the past, I think to catch a damsel who was too aggressive in the tank:

Ultra Life Reef Trap - Mini - 3 in. x 9 in.#

I have also read some reviews online that said this thing was awful. I do remember that I had to stay with the trap for a few minutes, but the fish I was trying to get was pretty brazen.
