LOST - Cataract Magnum blades - MFS - 6/30/16

I lost these on 6/30/16 on the Middle Fork Salmon. We put on late around 2pm and promptly lost (2) brand new Magnum II oar blades within the first 30 minutes. We searched eddies the rest of the trip with no luck. I did not get a chance to mark them and they have no identifier on them....

A friend suggested I post on here in the event someone actually found them.

Thanks in advance !

Well, one of them popped out on it's own. The other (spare) i fumbled while high sided on a rock and even though they float, i couldn't grab it in time and down the river it went.

this still makes no sense. why would you have two blades off? and one loose? I'm confused.

one blade (locked/clicked) in one of the oars "came out" from hanging up on some rocks....no idea how.

the second blade was the spare i was attempting to get off the spare oar shaft and fumbled it....

Bummer.
Did you call the FS? I noticed that they put together a lost and found list last year and have it posted on the website. I don't see an updated one for this season.
