I would put the net into the water and let him get used to the sight of it. When it's been a few minutes or so and he is swimming with bravery and like normal, slowly try to scoop him up. He may not be as afraid of it if he gets used to the sight of it. Good Luck! THat's what I did and it makes it easier to catch my fish.
-----------------
Another way you can try to catch him is to wait until he swims to the top of the tank, and gently scoop him up with a small cup or container. After catching my fish and do a water change, I always give my betta a fish some food or bloodworms as a treat.

I quit using the net when catching Flair. I found he freaked out to much. So I still have the cup he came in - and use that instead.
