My name is Andy and I am the admin/author here at Magnet Fishing Pro
I suppose I had best write a bit about how I got myself into this interesting and wacky hobby we call magnet fishing!
It all started around 8 years ago at a car boot sale. On that sunny and warm day I clocked eyes on a device. This device was something I had always associated with anorak wearing, nerdy guys. The device in question was a metal detector! I did not buy that metal detector but it sparked a sense of curiosity in me and once back home I started researching. On blogs, YouTube and websites I was seeing nice shiny bits of treasure that people had found. I was instantly hooked. Fast forward a couple of weeks and I had bought my first metal detector.
Then there was magnet fishing.
After a few years of metal detecting I started making YouTube videos. I also had a blog as well following my progress.
Then one day I saw a magnet fishing video whilst checking out a metal detecting forum. It was at that moment in time that I got obsessed with this crazy hobby!
My first go at magnet Fishing was around five years ago now. Back then magnet fishing was basically unheard of, apart from a few of us putting out the videos on YouTube. Our magnet fishing setups were certainly a lot different than todays, we had bulky ferrite magnet rigs!
Today I have started Magnet Fishing Pro, my aim? Well my aim is to pass on all the tips and tricks I have learnt over the last 5 years.
If you love magnet fishing then you have come to the right place my friend!
I also write on a website about my other favourite hobby, soundproofing my home, it has become a bit of an obsession! If you would like to check out my works have a look at Soundproof Designs
