General Note

  • 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.
