Slow and Steady Wins the Race

I had a few free hours this morning, so of course, I went diving. The water was really clear again, and I could have surface collected again, but I've hunted the snot out of this bend in the past few weeks, so I decided to move some sand to see if I could find anything that just washed out of the Chandler Bridge. After all, that's where the best stuff is, even if there isn't that much there. Today was no exception, as you can see from the quantity I came back with. I was after quality today, and boy did I find it. It was actually one of the first things I found today. I was fanning the sand and I saw the tip emerge. I knew from the minute I saw it that it was a killer. After about two minutes of carefully removing the layer from around it, I finally exposed it fully to reveal one of the most perfect angustidens I've ever seen. Its not missing a single serration anywhere. I really didn't care what else I found the rest of the day, because I knew I had a tooth to carry around in my pocket. The rest of the dive was rather dull because all I saw was sand, clay, and clams. Who cares, though, when you've aleady got a great one?
