OK so I went fishing all day yesterday and when I got back to my car @ Riverside Park on the Clack I leaned my 8 foot brand new berkeley IM7 rod and Okuma baitcasting reel against my car. I was so tired and i cleaned up and put my stuff away and somehow I managed to leave my pole and reel leaning against my car...I must have drove away and left my stuff...Im almost crying as I type this I am so pissed at myself. If anyone saw or heard anything or possibly knows someone who found a nice setup this Saturday at around 6:15pm...Please let me know. I would be indebted to you. Ugh no fishing for me for a while. I'm an idiot. Take care. Andrew

I feel your pain, I did the same thing with my grandfather's fly rod that he made himself. Never got it back. I posted ads everywhere, hoping that maybe someone would return it. It wasn't worth much financially, just a home made rod and a really old school reel, but it had some memories linked to it.

Maybe you will still get it back, there are a few good people out there.

So the pole is safe and sound and has been found by an amazing Oregonian. OMG. If this was in southern california where I used to live I could have kissed that pole goodbye as it would have already been sold on Craigslist. However this wonderful lady placed a Lost and Found ad on Craigslist and with the help of technology and this amazing world wide web I have found my baby. Thanks to everyones positive words and prayers :) . We'll be paying special attention to all my gear from here on. I love Oregon even more now. I'll never leave this place.

OREGON REPRESENT!

Yeah....ethical people with a conscience... I love Oregon. Dude, don't do that again though. There are just enough river rat tweakers out there to make the next time a BAD DEAL. Hope to see you on the Clack!
