Hello Everyone,
I am new to this forum, as well as Metal Detecting. I do a lot of fly fishing on the Gulf Coast down here in SW Florida and thought it would be neat to carry a detector along with me.
Can anyone offer input on a good entry level unit? It doesn't necessarily need to be fully submersible, just resistant to the splash from the surf I would imagine.
Thanks!
-Steve
