Default All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

I've seen quite a few guys missing their front teeth here in Florida, mainly caused by using their teeth to throw a cast net. Wife just got me a new Tim Wade net for Christmas and it's my first one. Saw a lot of posts from you guys here on THT about how good the nets are. I was in the yard throwing it yesterday and really love the net. I got the 8 foot "greenie" which has a lot of nice weight and the smaller mesh to avoid "Christmas Trees"

As it happens....a few days ago Wade Cast Nets left a comment on my cast net video saying;
"good tutorial" What a great compliment coming from Wade Cast Nets. I just wanted to share my video with you to save your teeth, quit getting bacteria in your mouth, no wet shoulders with jelly fish stings, etc. Hope you will let me know how it works for you.

Do you have a favorite way of throwing your net?

I believe that using your teeth was to start out like to get the hang of it. There are thousands of ways to throw the net.

If you use my method in my video and throw a cast net for the first time, you will probably land a pancake.

I've known many....from the Panhandle in Florida. Some of their teeth get to be in bad shape anyway and when they get to a certain point, they go flying on a good cast

The hat was really hard to find and I really don't need it to throw, but you might. Just Google it.

Not too sure about the kinds of people you know who'd lose teeth throwing a net but... That'll work for smaller nets, won't open a 12' 1/4" mesh no way.
