So, I decided to head out to Wilsonville Pond today after work to do some fishing. I got there, threw my line in a couple times, didn't feel real great about the area and decided to move to a different area. I walked down the path and managed to get my line stuck in a tree branch. As I was untangling my line I started to feel a sharp pain in my ankles, and I looked down to see that my legs were swarmed with bees. I dropped my tackle, which was in a paper shredder with no lid (lost my tackle box a few weeks ago), and I ran as fast as I could. I made it out with only 5 stings on my legs, but I dropped my tackle right on the middle of the hive, which was on the ground. So, I let the bees calm down and after about 15 minutes I went back to get my tackle, and as soon as I got even close those bees started swarming again. This time I made it out without getting stung, but I could not get my tackle. In the end, I threw my line out a few times and ended up losing my tackle entirely.
If you want about $50 - $100 worth of tackle, for free, head to Wilsonville Pond and see if you can get it. Let me know how it goes. Also, there's a bottle of Alaskan IPA in the box as a sweet reward when the job is done. Good Luck!
