I just got home from 3 hours of swinging my detector in Okanagan lake when there was a phone call and an email from Jaime that she had lost her ring in the Lake. She was at the Doggie Park throwing sticks for her 2 dogs Tosh and Reo when her ring caught on the stick and went into the water. I met her at the park within 30 minutes and she showed me the location of the throw, I knew from experience that this part of the lake is littered with metal junk but figured a gold ring should be an easy find. On my first sweep one way with no obvious good target, I did a sweep the other way and dug every signal. After 90 minutes and a bag full of junk I was starting to get discouraged, but I knew the ring had to be there, so after searching the beach I widened my search in the water away from the target area and within 10 more minutes we had the ring, persistence pays. Jamie had sentimental feelings for the ring as it was handed down to her from her Auntie, she learned that when throwing sticks into the water do not wear your rings.
