How To Throw A Cast Net

There are many proven methods on how to throw a cast net. Fitec has compiled a list of recommended castnet throwing instructions for each cast net. Below are cast net throwing instructions for our 6' radius and above cast nets, 5' radius and below cast nets, and our new revolutionary Easy Throw cast nets with the cast net throwing ring!

Fitec EZ Throw Cast Net Throwing Instructions



Slip the castnet throw line through
the hand loop and tighten
around your throwing arm


Coil the throw line into
neat loose loops into
your cast net throwing hand.


Grasp the cast net ring palm down
(fingers on top, thumb
on bottom).


With your free hand, reach
straight down from your
thumb and grasp the lead line.


Place that section of lead
line into your palm. The
castnet ring will hold it in place.


Turn your palm down and
you are loaded and ready
to throw your cast net.


Rotate the cast net a full
turn away from your
target


With your throwing arm outstretched,
rotate in a smooth continuous
motion toward your target.


Release the cast net into the
air at a slight upward angle
in the direction of your
live bait target.

The castnet should hit the water in circular form.

Let the cast net sink to your desired depth and pull the throw-line to close the net.

Cast Net Throwing Instructions for 6' Radius Cast Nets and Larger

Cast Net instructions are right handed. Simply reverse hands and sides to throw your cast net left handed



Cinch rope around your left
wrist and coil the hand-line
into left hand as shown.
Grab castnet with left hand
just below horn


Extend left arm and grab
the net again at pocket
height with right hand.


Transfer castnet back into left
hand. At this point all
of the net should be in
your left hand with the
lead line resting on the
ground.


Reach down from where your
left thumb and forefinger meet
and divide your cast net
in half.


At this point, you should
have the hand-line, the
horn, and half of the net
in your left hand, and
the other half of the net in your
right hand.


Roll the half of the net
in your right hand over
your left thumb and
release.


You now have two clumps
of lead line at the bottom
of the net. A high section
over your thumb and a low
section hanging from
your left hand.


Grab the lead line with
your right hand where the
high and the low clumps of
lead line meet.


Place the lead line
gently in your front teeth
(Be careful not to put the lead or net
itself in your teeth, only the
rope between the leads.)


Reach down with your right
hand and pick up the lead
line hanging from your teeth with
your thumb and forefinger.


Turn your right palm up,
bringing it up near your left
hand and fold the netting
over your left thumb back
into your right hand.


Both of your hands should
be somewhat close together
and palm up. You are loaded
and ready to throw your cast net at
this point.


Stand facing left of your
target. Keeping both of your
hands together, simulaneously
rotate your body and hands
ninety degrees to your left.
Without stopping, immediately
rotate back toward your
target in one
smooth continuous motion.
(Be sure to keep
your arm outstretched)


Release your cast net at a slight
upward angle in the direction
of your target.
(Be careful not to
overpower your throw).

The cast net should open into
a circular form.
Pull on the throw-line to
close the net at the
desired depth.

To dump your live bait, simply hold
over a bucket or bait well
and pick up the horn of
the castnet and release the
hand line. The bait should
fall out the bottom of the net.
