YORKSHIRE MAGNETEERS: The attraction of magnet fishing

 

Leeds TV were invited to Crown Point Bridge by the Yorkshire Magneteers to discover the increasingly popular hobby of magnet fishing.

Within waters across Yorkshire, they’ve really found it all - from historical artifacts to shopping trolleys and everything in between. To find out more about the hobby, Gaynor, Kerry and Chris explained why they are all hooked on magnet fishing.

Gaynor Watterson, Yorkshire Magneteers Administrator, said: “Our hobby is varied - we can find historical artifacts one day and 12 shopping trolleys, broken or stolen bikes or absolutely nothing the next. All of this whilst helping the environment, our wellbeing (absorbing VitD and fresh air) and, oh yes, it's the best gym workout ever, giving you a complete body workout by pulling stuff up!”

“We usually are out on a Sunday for our main meets, but our members, who are scattered throughout Yorkshire, do sometimes go out during the week in various locations.”
