    If your going to be scooping river rock you need a stainless steel scoop or at least one that has stainless steel lip.

    I've had very good success with the Sunspot Stealth scoop. Its made in Warren, Michigan and is stainless steel. I paid 189 for it but it will outlast me. Also I got the 8 inch wide scoop.

    You could always build your own out of PVC pipe and chicken wire. I'm pretty sure someone posted about one they put together that actually looked really cool. Their stated cost was about $40.
