Ok so here is a silly question. I have a cast net that I have had for a long time. Bought it quite some time back but then never have used it. I have taken it out in the yard a few times and tried to throw it but have not had to much success getting it to open up. I took it and layed it out on the ground to make sure that it wasnt knotted shut or something and it wasnt. I guess I just dont know how to use it. I am wondering if it is to big of a net for a person that is short like me. I am 5'2" and when I hold the net by the center with the weighted part on the ground the center is about as high as I am tall. The way that I have been trying to do it is as follows. Hold the center part in my right hand, about a foot and a half from the actual center. Take the weighted line in my left hand and then move down some on the weighted end and take another hold of it in my right hand as well. Then use a sweeping motion to the left and throw it. It flies nice but dont open up much. Any suggestions??
