Peace river rat

Some pics of my digging tool, it is galvanized steel that I welded. It took me the better part of a day to fabricate it. The 1/4 inch mesh is held on with copper wire ties. As you may be able to tell, it is somewhat heavy empty, much less full. I stack two yellow cat litter buckets in the river that forms a stable "table" I lay the long end flat on my table and paw thru it at my leisure.

 

Alot easier than trying to manhandle it! The commercial ones I have seen are a joke!

Looks like it is put together pretty good. Is this all you use?

Yep, I ride my self made recumbent bicycle to the river, it is easier than carrying 2 objects. I had two yellow cat litter buckets to stack and make a "table" to hold it on so I don't hold all the weight. I stashed the buckets near the river and someone stole them! Cat litter buckets!

 

Oh well, I found a rusty dog crate that works better.

Maybe they are not stealing your buckets, but just cleaning up litter
