Wednesday 21 March 2007 @ 12:35 am

There’s no question about your enthusiasm for metal detecting but there’s everything to doubt about your metal detecting skills. If you want to transform your enthusiasm into something more productive, visible, and concrete - such as obtaining real honest-to-goodness finds - here are some simple tips to upgrade your metal detecting abilities to the next level:
