    Being LEFT-Handed myself, I'm finding this Thread and Replies most helpful when I shop for
    a Left-Hander's Magnet for "Fishing"...!

    Thanks guys...!

    You don't need a left handed magnet, you need to convert your right handed one. The conversion is fairly simple. If you are left handed, you likely tied the magnet to the rope using a left-handed knot. To make the conversion, simply switch the ends of the rope and continue with the left handed knot. The lay of the rope will, over the period of a few weeks, alter the magnetic flux to reverse directions.

    Also, as others have said, always throw with your left hand. and retrieve with your right. Most magnets will convert in about two weeks. Patience is a virtue ... I've been told.

    That is just too complicated. When I ordered my magnet I made sure the eyebolt was screwed into the side. The right hand magnet is on the bottom. Just turn it over and now you have a left handed magnet. It is a proven fact left handed catch better things. Look it up on u-tube. Dude has found gold nuggets big as marbles.

    Those must be some special kind of nuggets, the ones I have been around my magnet would not touch. I have to use a metal detector on the gold stuff around these parts

    Now you got me confused..... I thought aisle three was left handed screwdrivers and cresent wrenches. I'm still trying to find the metric hose clamps.

    If you're having problems finding a left handed magnet, just flip it over before you throw it. I'm a lefty & it's the only way I can chuck my right handed rig. OH! MOST IMPORTANT!!! Don't forget to coil your rope left handed or it'll bird nest on you.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    My best source for metric hose clamps is the part of the dam when they built it that was covered up that had a Volkswagen graveyard on it.

    With the relative bearing grease.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Reminds of a "sky hook", how about a burlap bag and flash light in the dark for a "snipe hunt".
