Lost Fly Rod and Reel Big Thompson
Mid-Sunday morning the Big Thompson (CO) went up to close to 270 cfs (now - Tuesday - it's down to 210 cfs).
We had fishermen that day, and one of them fell in, lost his Kelly 3-piece rod and LL Bean Reel.
Location: Big Thompson River, East of Sleepy Hollow Park, around the bend, near the island, left bank as you are coming down.
Could be anywhere in the area of, or downstream of, that concrete bridge over Brown Trout Lane. (We have a good-size brown pump house next to the bridge.)
A lot of stuff ends up in that eddy below our gate, but we don't know how a fishing rig would act in this water: drag along the bottom until it hangs on a rock? float on top until it hangs on a rock? keep on floating to the plains? or beach up next to that eddy?
