Welcome to the page that is about my story and how I became involved in this weird, wacky and yet wonderful hobby.

Having been a decade long metal detecting enthusiast I was intrigued when I heard about magnet fishing around 6-7 years ago.

I had always wondered about the treasures that may have been lurking in the waterways near where I metal detected. However I could think if no way to get to them without scuba diving and that was not really an option to me.

So when I heard about magnet fishing I was purchasing my first magnet straight away.

The rest is now history and I actually tend to go magnet fishing more than I do metal detecting these days.

Over the years I have documented my journey through a YouTube channel, website and also on various online forums, who have picked up on my guides and shared them with their communities.

I hope you enjoy your time at Hobby Magnet Fishing and learn something new.
