The pilot arrived at his destination and initiated a normal circuit prior to landing. After partially completing his downwind checks, and before he lowered the landing gear, the pilot decided to conduct a quick inspection of the property for flood damage. On returning for landing, the pilot did not make any further pre-landing checks and the aircraft touched down with the landing gear retracted. A pre-recovery inspection did not reveal any defects that would have prevented the landing gear extending had it been activated. The pilot reported that he had minimum flying currency.
