Designed for heavy-duty lifting and underwater use, these Retrieving Magnets means business! A Retrieving Magnet is a useful accessory to have around your fly tying work station, boat, or workshop. Its ability to recover hooks, nails, beads, and other ferrous material is second to none. Plus, a threaded hole with screw in ring (rope not included) allows the Retrieving Magnet to be lowered into the water and other hard-to-reach places. Heavy-duty magnet comes in handy when you've lost important tools, heavy metal objects--even small motors--at the bottom of your favorite lake or stream.
Rated 4 out of 5 by boilermaker Great product, but could be a little larger
This works pretty well, except that it could be a little bigger and maybe a circular shape.

Hardly has any lift too it. Get a larger one. It has very little pulling power for a magnet. If you want to retrieve something you need 2 or 3 times this size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by tnrichie Keep looking
The magnet is held inside a channel which prevents it from making contact with most anything. I don't know why this it, but it reduces its effectiveness drastically. I'd keep looking if I were you.
