There has been several comments about castnets lately and I'ld like to give my feedback on the FITEC Castnets. They are stupid easy to learn to throw. Got mine from Cabelas but they are also available elsewhere. I stood on my deck (the one on the house, not the one on the boat) and learned to throw it consistently in about 10 minutes and I've never had a castnet in my hands before. The aluminum ring is the key - can't recommend it enough. See picture.
