Funny story about dirt fishing


Well-known member
Today while out metal detecting I had this Short chunky Asian lady stop to check out what I was doing. I had a target reading quarter on the vdi so I got down and dug it up. It turned out to be a junk target, so I showed it to her and told her I was dirt fishing, and put it in my pouch. She had a hard time, but told me something about the river. I tried talking to her and I continued metal detecting, then she walked on by. A short time later her and a couple of other ladies came down the walkway. they all stopped and watched me as I retrieved a coin. One of them told me that I did not have to go dirt fishing, but go fishing with her and them in the river or a local pond as I could find fish that I could eat.
I told them that this was a hobby and I enjoyed finding coins and other things in the dirt. But would like to go to the river someday.

As metal detectorist, we don't even realize we've created our own language, I can remember when I first got on this forum about 7 years ago about half the stuff I read didn't make any sense.

When I first start metal detecting, it was me and the parks, fields, lakes, beaches all to myself. Everyone seemed to avoid me as no one knew what I was doing. Now it seems that there are groups of people doing this and even clubs ?
Now there is a new language about metal detecting ? What happened ?
My first metal detector had a Intensity meter on it and held 14 AA batteries in it?
What happened ?
