This is the way I throw it. I am right handed. I take the end of the rope and loop it over my right wrist. with my left hand I gather th rope and make approx 5 big loops transfering them to my right hand. Once I get to the ring, I grab just below the ring with my left hand and transfer it to my right. ( you now have the rope in loops as well as the net in your right hand). Grab the net left hand under right and slide your left hand down the net approx 18 inches and bring it to the right hand making a small loop. Then reach straight down an grab a weight and bring it up to your mouth placing a small section of net between your teeth (Gap between two weights) (( can be gritty with sand but I have had worse)) Slide your left hand down the weights to the right of the portion in your teeth arm across your body approx 2-3 feet between your arm and teeth not too much sag. Best I can explain it is like tossing a frisbee. Using both your right and left arm toss up and out releasing teeth and right hand as you would a frisbee. It took me about three tries before I got it down. I can throw over branches, bass seat, engine, trolling motor etc.... As you throw, like a frisbee or a horizontal golf swing, your left shoulder shouldbe facing your target and as you finish the throw your belly button should be facing the target. Good luck and have fun. I love my cast net.
