It is not easy!

This may be one you have seen this , but I found it helpful.

How to throw a Cast net - How to cast a Cast Net

2 B honest, my wife can throw it better than I can, and my buddy, his wife can throw better than him. Maybe give it to your wife/girl, let her figure it out, and then show you.
That is how I learned.:D

It is a good skill to have, if you ever get to the beach and the shops are out of bait, you just catch your own

Videos are good, but there's nothing like having someone show you.

You may have to ask more than one person to show you. I did because some people that can throw the heck out of a cast net are unable to tell you what they are doing. They don't think about it, they just do it.

The 'spin' part was what I was missing. I was told to throw it like a Frisbee. It's nothing like I throw a Frisbee.:nono: After the third person showed me I finally got it. (kinda)

BTW, all three people threw it a different way but I learned something from all of them.
