Incident 05-Jan-2015. Pilot’s report. I was flying the last load of the day and decided to do a low pass across our swoop pond. They have multiple buoys in the pond and my right wing got too low and impacted a buoy on the right leading edge. I barely felt anything in the plane so i entered the pattern and landed on runway 22 with no anomalies. Upon the post flight inspection i noticed the damage to the right wing.
