Fossiling in the footprints of others....

I had a day off so I had decided I was going rain or shine...It rained where I live early on and had cleared by the time I was ready to head out fossiling. I arrived at an older spot and discovered it hadn't rained that hard at all there....oh well... I was going to try my luck anyway. Not five minutes into the hunt I came across footprints...someone had been here already, but I don't give up even when I come across an area someone else has already hunted. I continued on and started to find the usual tiny teeth and then some small shamers. Not too much left. Then my eye caught a straight serrated blade sticking out in a deeper murkier part of the stream. Couldn't get a decent water shot with my camera so I picked it up. A Good Size Angustidens at 2-7/16 inches long with a thick root and nicely colored. I had my find of the day. I can see someone could easily miss this one deep in the water, but I am sure glad they did. Motto of the day...Never give up !!!
