We received an email from Crystal after she did a exhaustive google search to find someone to help her husband find his wedding ring. Her husband Aaron had been tube fishing on Lake Lavon in Texas all day long. He had no idea where he lost the ring and I think really did not expect us to find it.
Trying to coordinate schedules for us to make the hour drive out to the lake took several days, so today when we all arrived at the lake the ring had been lost for 9 days. We arrived about 9am and met Aaron & Crystal, remember he was very unsure where he lost the ring, in fact he thought it was probably out in 20-25 ft deep water where he had been tube fishing.
Aaron showed us the area where he and his buddy cleaned the fish in a picnic area. Ellen & I got out both of our Garrett ATPro’s and began the search. Aaron and Crystal took a walk down the beach while we were detecting. We had only been there 20 minutes when we spotted the Silver Carbonite Wedding Band. We could not believe we found it, this was one of those searches you go on almost knowing its going to be a long shot at best.
BUT, it turned into a awesome day. Ellen & I walked down the beach and Aaron & his wife spotted us and began walking back our way. As we got close to them I said “Boy the lake is really low” instantly you could see their faces get a little sad thinking we had not found the ring and already given up.
THEN, I said, “Aaron let me ask you a question, would you like to have this back” and I held up his ring. As you can see in the pictures, they were ecstatic and could not thank us enough.
What a wonderful hobby we have and the joy we get to bring to people when we find their lost item.
Another successful hunt for “The Dallas Ring Finders”
