Lost fly rod!

Post By: i2fly      Posted: 10/21/2022 5:27:54 PM     Points: 2333    
Hey guys I had a friend reach out to me. He apparently left his TFO with a Lamson reel attached in the lower corner of the camp sites. Closest to the water. Any help getting it returned to him would be greatly appreciated.
Jim - AWB and Bill - Anteroman have my cell #.

Thanks Fellas, i2

Best brown this year from Antero! They are growing…

Thank you Jim - AWB. I certainly appreciate your help getting this rod returned. Also a big thanks to Mark who found the rod. You are both fine stewards of our sport. It’s good to know we have such awesome members here in FX.

Thank you
I2 - Don

You're welcome Don. Sometimes you just get lucky! Both Mark and the boat inspectors at Antero deserve a big shout out. I drove in and mentioned to the young guy there that we were looking for a lost rod.. he said they didn't have it and I thought that was the end of it. Then when I get off the water I find a grocery receipt (lol) attached to my windshield wiper. Was about to toss it out when I noticed writing on it!!! Mark left the note he had found a rod and to contact him. Obviously the boat inspectors were helping to find the rod and Mark happened to show up!

It's amazing just how many times something like this happens on our forum!
