What's the difference between "throw" and "cast"?

We say: lo primero que se echa en "echar" es la hache.

Cast is much less used, but there are some cases in which cast is used.
You can cast a fishing rod or net (but never throw a fishing line) You can cast a glance at someone (but never throw a glance) You can cast a spell (colocar un hechizo), but throwing a spell sounds bad. You can cast dice or throw dice.

Cast sounds more poetic and is used in sayings like: cast seeds into the wind.

With these exceptions in mind, throw is generally the word to use.

He vuelto de "the spanish thunderdome" y ahora mismo acabé de leer "lo echaron" como "they showed it [transmitted] (by TV)" .. ¿un otro uso del verbo más útil y confundido?

Exactly the same in Spanish.


Exactly the same in Spanish. (Without being poetic at all)

I've seen 48 entries in the RAE from "echar". (but English "get" is much worse).

Thanks, poli.
