Many years ago, a friend came up to my house and the conversation turned to 'water-witching.' He was a big believer in it and I thought it was a load
of cow persimmons. So he told me he could have me 'witching' with just a couple of coat hangers. I said prove it.
He unbent the clothes hangers and cut off the twisted ends. Then he re-bent them into two big 'L' shapes, maybe a foot on one leg and a couple of feet
on the other. He put the short legs in my hands so the wires were pointing straight out and we took a walk.
I was determined to make sure he couldn't prove what I just knew was a load of bologney. So here I go traipsing across our place holding these wires.
Before I got 100 feet, they crossed. A few feet later, they uncrossed. By themselves. Against my will.
So I figured OK, I just happened to move the right way and they responded to those little movements humans make while walking across unpaved land. No
biggie. Then I remembered: there is a water line running right about where they crossed! We have water lines buried all over this place to pump water
from the wells to where we need it, and that one supplied the house I was living in.
Coincidence... had to be coincidence! So I kept walking, this time concentrating on making damn sure I was holding the wires so they wouldn't cross...
just a slight angle that made them want to stay open. In a few minutes, it happens again despite that small angle I was holding them at. Another water
The third time it happened, I laughed. There was no water line there! At least I didn't think there was until my friend pointed out the faucet nearby
we rarely used... I had found a water line had forgotten was there!
That went on for a good while, and we wound up walking 20 feet from the treeline through a hayfield. Suddenly, the wires slammed together so hard it
hurt my hands! We kept walking, and 100 feet later, they flew back apart. We had found part of the stream that feeds our main well.
Dowsing, witching, whatever you want to call it... it works!
