Default Lost CF midge fly box on the Ark Tailwater

I fished the section between Valco parking lot and the concrete at the bend this AM and lost my midge box. It is a light cream colored box that is nearly full, I can identify the flies. PLEASE contact me if you find it... the reward will be worth it.

Over the years I have read posts like this and it's a bummer.

On my last two trips to the pan I have found a fly box each time...no name or number. I would love to see the angler get them back as they were both stuffed with hundreds of dollars of great fly's.

A few years ago I started putting at least my phone number on each box. I have a couple metal boxes and I used my cheap little engraver to scribe my name and number on them.

I hope it some how/way makes it back to your vest.

Hubby had a silly little cheapo box returned to him last summer after leaving it behind at Lake Lehow - nice guy from Wright and McGill called and left a message... all because I put his name and tel# on the outside of the box

This is after he has left behind landing nets, hats, jackets, sunglasses, bags full of gear.... none of which had any kind of I.D. on them... Makes me ill to think of the stuff he's lost over the years...

And after all the stuff that's been found, posted, and has gone unclaimed... bummer, dudes.

(and yes, I *am* a geek - I have my name and # written on the inside of my chest pack - something I can't ever afford to replace). I still have to get labels on things like my rods, reels, all that other stuff...

don't you hate it when you have to admit that mom and dad were right, and you need to put your name in your stuff?

my dad has been in the ground for almost 20 years, and I still have stuff that has his name and tel# in it...
