  1. Not sure that I will have as much luck as Paul did but what the heck I will try.
    Lost on the Chewuck River, August 13, 2011 at Eightmile Creek, a Yellowstone 5w fly rod and reel.
    Caution to all NEVER, NEVER leave your fly rod on the top of your SUV and drive off. Dumb Dumb
    PM me if you find it thanks in advance.
     
  2. Did that once. Haven't done it since.
     
  3. Did it once myself too but fortunately I heard it skipping across the roof onto the ground. I hope you get it back.
     
  4. That kind of "brain fart" sure screws up a new shotgun too...
     
  5. Thank for the nice words. It's good to know I am not the only one.
     
  6. Last year we were hunting pheasants in the snow in Montana. We took the birds and put them in the snow for a photo. I leaned my shotgun on the front bumper thinking I would get it to put in the picture. By the time we got the dogs and people in the photo, I forgot about my gun. Got in the truck and drove forward, right over the gun and bent the stock in half! It is not fixable and it was such a stupid move! So you are definitely not the only one! Rick
     
  7. No, you are certainly not the only one...I have also done it with skis, a bike (both put in the rack but not secured), binoculars....you get the picture
     
  8. Like most of you, I have done it, too.

    The trick is to put your rod (or your sunglasses, or your whatever) on the front hood of your vehicle. That way, you will see it whenever you get in the car and get ready to drive. I think I first read this in Tap's Tips.
     
  9. That's a great tip
    Thanks
