Stolen Rods/Reels in Central Newfoundland
Just for the slim hope that any information is available. Myself and two friends from university decided to take some time from school to go salmon fishing for the weekend on the Exploits River in Bishops Falls, NL. We tented in a place called Fallsview Park right next to the river. We had three fishing outfits stolen from our camp site at around 4 am. Others in the park said there were two guys snooping around the sites and getting into trucks. The rods and reels were stolen in the morning on July 18th.
The three outfits are
Sage Launch 2 pc. Rod 9 foot 8 wt
Teten Tioga Reel black 8LA
Black Streamside 2 pc. Rod 9 foot 9 wt Black
Sage 1880 reel
Brown Streamside 2 pc. Rod 9 foot 9 wt
Compaq Reel looks exactly like a Pfluger Medalist 9/10 wt
It is really awful that someone would do this, it almost ruined our trip but we didn't let it. However we are all thinking about how we will get equipment to be able to finish the season.
Deeply saddened to hear this news.
Hi Fly Tyer,
I'm very sorry to hear about the theft of your equipment. It seems like every place with good fishing has a predator waiting to take someone's hard-earned equipment. I'm glad that you were able to get some pleasure out of the trip. It certainly would have ruined my experience. Why do we never have an Ayatollah around when we need one. Good luck with your search? 8T :(
