  • Thank you Jason Scanlan/The Ringfinders! (2019)

    I contacted Jason Scanlan at “TheRingFinders” to discuss running a metal detector in the cold, moving water. Within ten-minutes of searching there was a “beep” in the headphones and I knew where to scoop with a long-handled net. Another minute or so later and I had my GoPro camera and equipment back in my hands. I pressed the power button and was able to watch the recorded journey my camera took after being knocked off of my kayak.

    Thank you Jason Scanlan/The Ringfinders!
