Default Found Fly Rod at Spinney

Batman found a fly rod today at Spinney floating in about fifteen feet of water with fish still alive and attached. He's spending the night, but I wanted to post in case anyone was worried. I also found a landing net that someone had left behind.

Wow somebody's having a Charlie Brown 'kite stuck in tree' kind of moment. Fish was still on it, eh?

Yeah, Jeff picked it up and brought it in...real nice fish on the end of the line.

Rod saved...fish released...it would be a real happy ending if he could find the owner...Jeff lost a rod up there two years ago...and a year later someone found it and returned it to him..pretty cool.

Not that I've seen....Guy probably doesn't think of it as lost...such as leaving it laying on the bank or in the parking lot...since a fish took it over the side instead...

Hopefully someone will come forward..

I may have a lead for you. I heard a roomer that guy i know had this happen to him a couple weeks ago. Checking now.

Looks like this happens a fair bit, as my buddy's was a spinning set up. He said he just set it down for a minute and splash it was gone. So the owner is still out there.

Yeah boy...can't set it aside for a minute...They hit hard. Funny, I was talking to a couple that were leaving when I was and I mentioned the rod...She says..."Was it a St Croix Legend?" It wasn't...turns out she had lost one the year before..

It would have been crazy if that fish had been towing around that rod for a year!!!

Hopefully he'll be telling the story and someone will tell him about the thread. The rod is safe in my garage awaiting it's rightful owner.
