    Detecting in Rivers/Creeks Beginner Hints

    I have decided to try my hand at detecting in rivers and creeks in my area. I swing an Equinox 600 so no problem there....Anything special I should know before I try my hand at this. Do you use some kind of scoop or strainer to retrieve a target? I am a total beginner at water detecting and just need some advise/suggestions or hints before I "dive in" to river detecting...Thanks for any help...Shorty

    Watch Toms and the Hoover boys videos will give you a good idea on what is needed ..Then add in the research of old swimming holes and beach's. Check out old phone books for that was the ticket for advertisement in the day.........., old news papers...and words from the old timers. Any where there is water there is something to dig... Looks like you have been around for awhile so you know the routine....Good Luck!
    Love Toms videos

    I think these are some of the best videos when they are water hunting.
