BTW, any shirt with buttons on it will give you some serious problems throwing a castnet and might get you thrown off the bow.
this is why I wear a bikini when cast netting

For me, I will appreciate any good advice I can come across. Learning is a process, not an event. Seems small to try to demean anyone that is making a sincere effort to pass on some bit of knowledge. Live and let live for me. 😎

Soak your net over night in a 5 gallon bucket of clean water and a couple ounces of fabric softener. Makes the net more pliable and easier to part and throw.

Try my method and learn to throw in 10 or 15 minutes.

Only real issue here is I'm getting attention, and you, are not. Another tip, putting on a fishing shirt and shorts does NOT make you a professional, ignorance or sexism taught you that I guess, you being a prime example. One thing professionals don't do is cry, whine, and minimize others on the internet hiding behind their keyboard.
Looking forward to that chat TarponCharter.
I enjoy all your videos and not just because of your bikini. Not sucking up here.....just being honest. I have caught some fish because of some of your Ideas.

So I bought a cast net a while ago, and didn't practice much or have a chance to use it till Saturday when the mullet run was going by. I think I watched every video linked here when I got the net, but it had been a while. I was terrible to say the least. Just rewatched a couple videos and realized I was loading it in the wrong hand! I was throwing right handed and loading it in my left. Long story short, don't do that folks!

One of the things I tell people is to throw the net with the hand you throw a Frisbee with. So, you'd load the net in the opposite hand, and your "Frisbee" hand is the lead hand.

So I watched a bunch of castnet video's and so far the two I'm gonna try are Darcizzle's and this guy's, another member on here. They looked the easiest And both explained it thoroughly. I definitely don't want to use my teeth or my shoulder. Thanks you two for taking the time.

you make a good point. I have been trying to figure out the bigger net. this vid and darsizzle explain every move - it works awesome on an 8' net. On the bigger net videos I have watched, they seem to gloss over a move here in there. in the second "load", for example, Mr Walker flips the leadlead up before he takes half of the remaining lead. He does it so fast that it is hard to follow how he is doing it. I guess practice is the only way.

Watch closely what he does with the lead line and his left thumb.A lot of people miss that part of the load.Talking about Walkers triple load throw.
