A cast net, also known as a throw net, is an essential piece of fishing tackle for fishermen in Australia. Our monofilament and nylon cast nets are carefully balanced, with weights placed along the net's edge to sink the net and catch small fish.
Cast nets can also be used to catch shrimp and prawns in Australia. Many anglers enjoy prawning, and there is no better way to acquire a feed or snag some bait than with a top pocket net. The top pocket is easily accessible from the top of the net, and the top pocket design encourages prawns to flick up through the tunnel and into the top pocket, where they are safely secured and cannot easily escape.
