My name is Brad, I recently purchased this site from Andy, you can read his story below. My goal is to keep Andy’s legacy going by writing more articles and immersing myself in this fun hobby of Magnet fishing. I live on the Gold Coast, Australia where I plan on doing a bit of magnet fishing myself.

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 today, 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
