Default lost rods in Spinney today

I know it's a long shot but we lost a couple rods out of the boat today at Spinney towards the inlet side off Pelican Point. Sage and Loomis with reels and possibly fish attached. Reward offered, thanks. Marc

Bummer. Did you set your rods down with a rig in the water? Those bruisers will rip your rods right from your hands.
I will most likely be there Tuesday and will keep an eye out..

Definitely a good place to take a cheap fly rod..not much casting involved out of a belly boat..and they will rip it out of your hands..

Hopefully they'll turn up..it's happened before...maybe bump your post for a couple of months..

Set them down, and watched them leave quickly. Been fishing that way for near 20 yrs and haven't lost one yet...first time for everything I guess!! Mine (the sage w a ross evolution reel) will be found on the business end of a big red indicator if the fish breaks off the fly. I will go three figures on the reward!!

You guys were both in a boat? Did the rods go overboard at about the same time? Final question--What flies did you have tied on?

Yes, we were both in the same boat. no, the rods were not lost at the same time, hours apart, though nearly at the same spot on the lake. we had Callibaetis and midges on, though it didn't seem to matter, they had the feed bag on at times.

I had a close call Monday out there. Luckily the rod holder on my float tube locked the reel in place but the fish yanked the holder and my tube 90 degrees......got my attention! I just ordered these for insurance http://www.basspro.com/Blakemore-Rod...product/16517/

At least if one went overboard you could do the "Jaws" chase for your setup.

Sounds like the floating line or the indicator would surface eventually...good luck!

Sounds like a good area to drag some metal-
