    I lost my fly rod on the Cascade River road. (Sunday the 22nd)
    I left it on top of my canopy and it fell of on the road.
    Somebody picked it up......I hope it was an honest person.
    The rod had a no name gunmetal colored fly reel and was a 9 foot 5 wt. Sage Rpl.
    Please if you found it call me.

    The first thing I do when I come off of skinny water is put my rod in my truck. It has become a habit.

    Now other things I have left behind and had to go back and get it was my jack. Had a flat and in my removing and replacing my spare I drove off and left my jack behind.

    What makes it worse, is my buddy has been warning me forever about putting my rod up there...."one of these days you're going to forget it up there".....my response...."nah...".
    Crap!

    You should post this on a couple of the local gear fishing websites. There is a chance a non flyfishing angler who wouldn't visit this site may have picked up your stick.
