My son and I just went yesterday to the Yuba just outside Marysville. Right under the bridge. My son found his first 2 flakes and is hooked! I got skunked! Great time. Trash and aluminum foil everywhere like people intentionally messing it up for metal detectors! We were using gm1000 and x705.
I've never seen fish fossils used in jewelry before. Very nice.
That looks like an excellent specimen of Phareodus Testis your son is holding. I've been to the Green River Formation myself to fish for fossils and really enjoyed it.
Can I just give you a down payment! And pick up later. I may visit a friend in Taos NM. Then make my way to Reno. I know where you are in Az cause I’ve been on the GPAA claim there in Morristown. Call you on Monday. Don’t want to interrupt your Sunday Swing. Patty
I have been collecting fish fossils and I find it really rewarding and now I love Metaldetecting . I love that gold. This is my sons find! The little Knightas fish I make into jewelry. This is called the Green River formation and is way on top of a mountain near the town of Kimmerer, Wy.
