Stay Safe Magnet Fishing with Magnetic G

Fishermen and women are no longer just searching for carp and trout; today, we are searching for ferrous treasures that lurk beneath the water’s surface through magnetic fishing!

In recent years, magnetic fishing has grown in popularity with an increasing number of enthusiasts casting off into rivers, lakes and canals to see what they can discover with their magnetic fishing kits! The hobby is ‘attracting’ (pun intended) people of all ages who have discovered everything from safes to historic coins, jewellery and a lot of scrap metal, too.

It then becomes your task to buy them a Christmas present,  gifting it to them in secret as their Secret Santa.
