Magnet fishing is a new hobby in South Africa. The hobby has taken off in the rest of the world where enthusiasts have been pulling out firearms, war relics, grenades, canon balls & shells, safes, bikes and many other very interesting metallic items.
All you need is a powerful fishing magnet which is tied to a rope. You throw it into the sea, river or dam pulling it back toward you in the hope that you latch onto a metal object.
Trawling for treasure in this manner can be very rewarding and full of surprises. You just never know what you may pull out from under the water. At the same time you are clearing the waters of litter and unearthing historical artefacts.
