Copy Cats…

Well, I have noticed that our so-called influencers, are all now getting in on the act of stream, and river bed hunting with a metal detector…

I have to smile, as they all don waders, and furiously swear allegiance to the brand as a testimony, bravely walking into ankle-deep water, looking about as comfortable as a turkey at Christmas, & waving the submersible detector carefully into the water, that was either begged stole or borrowed from there keepers,  some are using sand scoops, whilst others are not quite, so prepared and relying onimage17 1 their ordinary day to day digging gear, with a video taking twice as long,  & with minimum results, this area of treasure hunting I’m afraid is nothing new, and is all part of the wider treasure hunting spectrum, whether you are looking for metal objects, with a magnet or metal detector, foreshore hunting, or just walking down a stream to see what has been left behind, from years ago, this was and still is practised with a lot more success then any newcomer seems to have…

I personally blame the river hunters, for this, it was a well known American water detectorist and his English side-kick, that was on the tube recently, and had about as much success as the Archaeologists would allow them, as there Archaeologist handlers was as subtle & obvious as the nose on your face, and these two people were not allowed to go to productive areas, and as most areas had been dredged at one time or another, it was a foregone conclusion that nothing historical was going to be found, another PR stunt at its best…

it does seem to be a nasty and backbiting business, for these limelight hunters, so i wonder why they want to be a video influencer… as an example, & In my own opinion… there was the retirement of a well known detectorist a couple of years ago, which coincided with an “American” person who was to feature heavily in  “river hunters” this particular American person, was having a break from filming his own personal treasure hunts, to concentrate on  filming river hunters… Right…ok the scene is now set, these two individual video making treasure hunters, then became the subject of a certain person with a hat, speculating the reason for this with charts and “oh dears” as it seems they were all washed up, mega-rich, broke or had burnt themselves out, all very amusing, as it turned out that one had damaged his knees through work and was now following the current & more genital trend, of magnet fishing, whilst the other Treasure Hunter was filming a far greater adventure, than the one with the hat… “Ouch” how embarrassing… – So shall I reintroduce my video’s and become either a star or a pain in the “derry-air” er after over a hundred videos i think i will stick to my own assortment & brand of videos, and keep the old ones off the tin-ter-net and only introduce new ones, rubbish as they may seem, each one is for certain people and not for everyone… & tells there own stories, which outsiders will not understand…
