I was in Central park yesterday and saw a bloke doing this. Just a large magnet on a rope.He told me it was quite a big craze and to look it up on YouTube which I did. Some great video footage of alsorts being dragged from canals and other waters. Some even of safes being hauled in. The magnets a very strong but don't come cheap. Anyone on here tried it ?

I'd be all for it in canals, provided the enthusiasts didn't chuck the rubbish back in.

Most boat owners have magnet for recovery of things dropped in the canal. I once recovered a windlass for the lock paddles using one, but the quantity of other rubbish that came up before it was unbelievable!

I've got a magnetic fishing game. Do you want to borrow it?

Well it looks a whole less work than having to dig for it like the metal detectors, and I should imagine cheaper. When you think about it most probably more stuff in rivers and Wells than n ground.Right that's it where do I get a magnet from?

For goodness sake, Cools !!! Fishing down wells ? I suppose we'll all have to go searching the nearest ones if you go missing.
Now, stick to your family History instead, there's a dear.. Too much bad news these days, we don't want a 'missing person' notification as well, of one who went out with a fishing rod one cold night.

Haha, maybe you're right Granny thinking about it I'm abit long in the tooth now for such things. Knowing me the rope would most probably wrap round my ankle and I'd be right in after the magnet, splish splash !!! It does look fun though perhaps someone on here will have a go and show us their finds, I miss seeing the metal detector finds that explore ysed to post. Go on Dilly you have a go...

You leave my draws out of it, Dilly. You won't find them on a riverbank.
