As a kid I was fascinated with exploring old villages with castles and palaces and, of course, reading and listening to the legends associated with them.
When I was 16 my father bought me my first metal detector, which was a Rutus Proxima 2.0, and since that day I became a professional detectorist - at least I thought so. Lol
With each day out with my Proxima I learnt more about my detector and with every success, big and small, I got more into the hobby.
With more than 10 years of experience I now treat metal detecting as unearthing history rather than treasure hunting. Anyone who also is into this hobby and who has found an item lost by someone, a couple of hundreds or thousands of years ago knows this great feeling.
So for the last 10 years I've been a loyal Rutus owner, with a Rutus Alter 71 since last summer.
See you at the Rodney Cook Memorial rally.

Fishing, gym and travelling... and remember, If in doubt dig it out!
