I've always wondered when the bans were started. Of course today, nearly a hundred years later, there are still knuckleheads who think they have to overhead cast from piers, and people still get injured.

Ban Over-Head Cast At Balboa, Newport

Balboa, June 16.—Over-head casting is a thing of the past on the fishing piers of Balboa and Newport. A new ordinance, effective today, prohibits all over-head casting among the fishermen in Orange county’s harbor. A severe penalty is to be exacted for violation of the ordinance, it is declared. Owing to the many accidents, severe and painful, due to the over-head throw, it was found necessary to adopt rigid methods to protect not only the large “audience” but also the fishermen themselves.
