Always ensure that is is safe to fish in your selected location. Consider the water's depth and current be sure of your surroundings. Do not put yourself in danger and always tell someone when you are going to magnet fish. Ensure you have permission in your chosen location. Always ensure that your findings are cleared away from any footpath or walkway, and respect the environment around you. Read the magnet warning sheet before handling.
Beneath the surface of the water lies the unknown and you could be on the verge of unearthing a hidden treasure. You’re certain to find old scrap metal and fish hooks but people in the past have discovered historic coins, firearms and WWII artefacts! What will you find? Other people use magnetic fishing to help retrieve tools that have fallen into the water. With a rope length of 10 metres, you stand a strong chance of retrieving your equipment.
Discover bike frames that have been left in the water. Bring them back to life or trade the material in for cash!
Just like a pirate in search of lost treasure, find a hidden gem and reap the rewards by hitting the jackpot.
See how many fishing hooks you can discover and tally them up. Spare a thought for the fishermen and women out there.
Count your findings and make a little profit. Find old or foreign currencies and start a collection.
Pot magnets have a strong clamping force with a thin connection and allow you to attract to and hold large objects with a smaller magnet face.
Screw your eyebolt into the magnet and thread your rope through the hole and tie sufficiently. See below our knot recommendations.
Ensure you have a strong rope with a great breaking strength. Weaker ropes may snap when you are retracting the rope, magnet and ferrous material.
How to tie your rope to the magnet when magnet fishing?
When tying your rope to the magnet, ensure the knot is strong and secure. Your magnet will attract to ferrous materials beneath the water and a secure line is pivotal for retrieving the magnet and your find. Here are some knots we recommend:
A secure knot that can be tied quickly and easily. Works great with a thin rope.
A strong knot that gets tighter as you retract the rope from the water.
Often referred to as the Angler’s Loop, this knot creates a ring for your eyebolt.
