Diving a different river...

Yesterday I was nice outside and although the water is getting colder now I wanted to be diving for teeth ! We headed out to a river I hadn't been in yet. When we arrived the water looked bad. It was cloudy and when I hit the bottom I could see nothing. Zero visibility and super strong current ! Well I started feeling around in the murk and found a few whale verts, but nothing else the first dive. The second tank the visibility was tolerable, but unfortunately the teeth were hard to come by in this spot. I started to look around the bottom and after about 20 minutes I finally saw a nice 2-1/4 inch Angustidens just waiting to be picked up...and it was colorful ! I plucked it off the bottom and saw it was whole ! It ended up being the find of this trip because we had to get going, but I can't wait to dive again...
