A cast net, also called a throw net, is a net used for fishing. It is a circular net with small weights distributed around its edge.The net is cast or thrown by hand in such a manner that it spreads out on the water and sinks. This technique is called net casting or net throwing. Fish are caught as the net is hauled back in. This is the inspiration behind Bay, Laguna’s “Lambat Festival” and it just made its mall debut as the Independence day centerpiece in SM City San Pablo.
