Lost fly rod and spinning rod at State Bridge.....

Yup. It's me again. Apparently my 73 year old dad and I are equally absent minded with our gear. We forgot a Sage fly rod and a little red spinning rod taking out around 5:00 at State Bridge today. I was so tired from battling the wind all day I just wasn't thinking. I think we left them at the picnic table by the water hose. If you find them, it would mean the world if we could get them back. Thanks....

And also, a fishpond suitcase full of rods and reels. It just keeps getting worse...

Ouch! That sucks! Did you try calling the BLM? I assume they're the ones that pay the onsite host at State Bridge - maybe the host picked them up for you? Or maybe try the local fly shops - their guides are out there all the time and might have seen something. I heard stories about the winds out there yesterday....enough to drive anybody a little batty.

Ha! Got it all back! The guy who spends the summer there in his trailer had it. Got his number from Toby Sprunk of Eagle County Open Space, called him yesterday morning and he had it; went up yesterday afternoon and it was all there. Gave him a 12 pack as thanks and to pass on the river karma.

Thanks Eagle County Open Space! I was already a fan but this makes me an official fanboy.
