Lost Fly Rod

Hey guys, my client nearly fell in floating through the play wave at pumphouse on the Colorado and he dropped my sage pulse fly rod with behemoth reel. If this rod shows up please let me know as I’m a broke fishing guide who can’t afford new rods at the moment. Thankyou very much.

Yeah, if you're allowing clients to use your gear, it's a fine line between charging them for the loss/breakage and writing it off. Hope it's found, I've returned and have had lost gear returned but it always sucks.

Unless a guide states up front that the client is responsible to bring his own gear. It is to be assumed that the guide will provide everything necessary for a safe, fun trip. The client is responsible to bring the proper clothing, have fun and to tip if the guide does a good job. The guide should also provide lunch, snacks, beverages (non alcoholic), bait/lures/flies that are appropriate for the trip. Guides get to buy gear from the manufacture at a greatly reduced price so although it hurts to lose or break something, it goes with the territory. Rsstick said that his client almost fell in at the play wave, so that is on rsstrick. Now, as I read the rsstrick post. I did not believe he expected or asked his client to pay for rod. He was just hoping to get it back.
Just my opinion as a guy that sometimes hires a guide and sometimes guides.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life on or off the river.
