Magnet fishing Fishing Magnets More
Magnet fishing, what exactly is that? That's a game, isn't it? One of those games with a bowl full of toy fish where you have to fish the fish out with a fishing rod?
Magnet fishing is similar to fishing as everyone knows it, only fish are not fished for but on metal objects that lie in the water (provided they are partly magnetic). Magnet fishing can be passed along lakes, ditches, canals, canals. Some magnet fishermen go by boat to eject their neodymium magnet from the railing.
Unprecedented amount of metal It would not be easy to say, but there are an unprecedented number of metal objects in the water. These can be the most diverse objects. Contemporary things, but also ancient objects.
Coins are found, complete purses and even safes are taken out of the water. Often these vaults are empty, looted and dumped by thieves, but some vaults are (partly) still filled. Often you have to deal with a safe that, with high urgency, has been dumped because of the evidence.
As with the metal detection, you bring out a lot of metal objects that have no value and with the POWERPULL magnets you hit entire shopping carts and bicycles (plural) on the 'hook'. It's mainly the place you're looking. For example, bicycles are found that have been in the water for years and years. It can also happen that you suddenly have a new means of transport: bicycles that have recently ended up in the water. Just pump up the tires and cycle!
Magnet fishing with historical touch If you are looking in historic ditties, puddles, rivers, canals, you can make beautiful alternating finds such as crockery, (old) keys, coin money (if it is magnetic), and mountains of tools. You will also find the metal objects that you would find with a metal detector as long as the object is (partially) magnetic.
Old cannonballs, swords, daggers, helmets, ammunition boxes are found. It's all possible. The neodymium magnet is usually attached to a long rope. You throw the rope as far into the water as possible and slowly bring it back in. Some people work with long (telescope) sticks and poke into the water in search of metal objects that lie deep in the dredging.
From the boat magnet fishing has the advantage that you can get to places where one could not reach from the quay with the neodymium magnet.
