Anyone ever try it or heard of it? Seems like a fun wayto get relics out of dams or rivers

I tried it a little but don't have propper magnet yet. There are by far more magnetic stuff in an on the ground than first anticipated.

I think if you can organise a shop magnet(Acts like a broom), to run through a park it could be a quick bum cash tool since all our active currency is magnetic.

I've been shopping around and found a local supplier https://modernmagnetics.co.za/

Their prices are super competitive and won't necessarily break the bank.

Once I done some 'fishing' I'll post my finds.
