Net Casting

This man is casting a net to catch fish in the shallow waters at the south end of Wrightsville Beach, NC. A cast net, also called a throw net, is a circular net with small weights distributed around its edge. This simple method of fishing has been in use, in various forms, for thousands of years.

  1. Hi there..nice shot. I have one on my slideshow taken when my boys were younger. My hubby was teaching them. Wonderful post-

  2. I suppose it is easier or at least a quicker way to get supper… then out of the sun…no sunburn, out of the heat…no heat rash and on to better things… like resting in a hammock with a cool lemonade.

  3. That’s a really interesting photo…

    I remember doing that type of fishing with my Granddad..
