- Close-up of Max Dooley making a cast net - Lakeland, Florida
- The design of the castnet has remained relatively unchanged since its introduction to Florida by Spaniards centuries ago. When thrown properly, the net spreads to a full circle, trapping fish within its perimeter as it settles to the bottom. As it is pulled in, the net forms a bag that holds the fish.
- Dooley mentored Reginald Reis.
- Shelf number: S1640B16FF6.
