Lost Rod at Rattlesnake Lake

Lost in the evening last Thursday 11/8, along with my Rx Sunglasses. I got my glasses out today, but no sign of the rod. If anyone picked it up, let me know. Here are the rod details:

5'6" Yellow Fenwick Fiberglass spinning rod
Shimano Sedona Reel
Rigged with pink slip strike indicator and a emerger dry fly

It fell off my float tube while I was struggling to rescue my sunglasses. Lost at the launch in 3-4 feet of water.

This is not an expensive rig, but it is my multi-tasker: I use it to take kids trout fishing, for squidding in the winter, and to fish dry flies when I forget my floating line, as was the case on thursday.

Thanks for keeping an eye out,
I was just at Rattlesnake and a couple young guys asked if I lost a spinning rod. If I had seen this, I would have said. YES. I did not get any info from them, but they drove a white Toyota or Nissan pick-up with a two seater green fiberglass boat and trolling motor. They have fished RSL before. I will look for them next time since I am up couple times a week. BTW, they were using spinning gear, so hopefully they keep it.

Man, this forum is awesome even when it just a day late.

Hope you get the rod back Mary!

Also hope to see you both on the Island this winter.

Awesome, mark! I think those guys were on the water when I was fishing out my sunglasses... I'm not there as often as you are, but I'm hopeful I will get my rod back one of these days!
