Basic Fossicking Equipment by Leigh Twine

We always keep in mind when taking gear that chances are that the fossicking gear will have to be carried, either because at first people are specking and need to carry gear until they find a suitable site to dig, or because you can’t get the car close enough to the fossicking site.

We carry most of our gear in a back pack, which also has to have room for plenty of drinking water and maybe your lunch also.
