The Lowcountry Life

In my mind, nothing represents the lowcountry way of life more than seeing a cast net fly over a creek.  I had been wanting to capture this on camera for awhile and yesterday evening everything came together; the tide, the weather, and my always obliging friend James.  Here are a few of the images.


  1. Could you tell me how that kind of net works.....

  2. It's a round net (available in different diameters and with different size holes) that is thrown into a creek or other water and it has weights all around the perimeter that cause it to sink to the bottom quickly, trapping any fish and crustaceans. When the net is pulled out of the water, it scoops out a fishy harvest - hopefully :) Google "cast net"
