James Evans's Bio

I've been metal detecting for about 30 years. Got really into it about 6 years ago. I use state of art equipment for both water use and land use. I can search in water to a maximum depth of about 5 feet. I have a wet suit and a Dry suit for colder water. I have found everything from lost toys, gold rings, keys, jewelry, relics, silver as well as other valuables.

Items lost on Private Property or State Land will require prior permission from the land owner or governing authority prior to conducting a search. Houses that are in foreclosure must have permission from the bank or Title holder.
