How To Throw a Cast Net The Easy Way – by

How to throw a cast net the easy way with simple easy to follow instructions. This is the last tutorial and set of tips you’ll need to learn to throw a cast net.

This covers two tutorials on how to throw  a cast net. One involves using your teeth and the other places the net over your hand instead of using your teeth. I’ve been throwing cast nets using my teeth for years and it’s an old habit. I can throw without using my teeth just as well but still prefer the other method of throwing a cast net.
