    I had the same thing happen to me when I was younger and could'nt afford to replace them. That sucks. I have a 12ft Shakespeare surf outfit that I don't use anymore if you need it PM me.

    The gear will most likely wind up in a pawn shop. Thieves are not too bright. You could file a police report and check out local pawn shops. If you can find your stuff and tell the cops, sometimes the pawn broker will give it back to avoid the hassle.

    This is what makes us family! I am so very proud to call you people family! As far as stealing goes,absolutely inexcusable! I was telling another brother a few days property that it is worse than shameful when people think they can touch and handle and do as they please with other's property.My philosphy and what I have taught my girls is ya don't touch or bother what does not belong to you. To each of you who are helping or willing to help,I give you my sincere thanks and reps to all! May God Bless and keep you!:big_smile_2:

    yeah, make sure you file a police report. a couple of years ago i had 3 rods and reels stolen. a few months later i was in a pawn shop only a mile and a half from the campground we were in and found one of them for sale. i had not taken time to file a police report at the time they were stolen. i went to the police and they got them back but it would have been easier if i had filed the report as soon as they were stolen. when the police went to the pawn shop and found out who had pawned them it made it real easy to get the rod and reel back. they aholes that pawned them were well known to the police. if they had not been caught before a late police report may not have worked so well. i never did get two rods and reels back but i know that the criminals spent a little time in jail thinking about it.

    Andy - PM your mailing address to me. I will send you a rod & reel combo. What size fish do you usually go after? What # test line do you prefer? I hate thieves!:angry:

    not sure where reidsville is... but i fish jordan lake alot, so if u want to get on the water and do some fishin before u can get back up to par, u r more than welcome to get on the boat and use my gear... it sux that your stuff was stolen, and if i had extra i would give it to u, but i'm barely stragglin on with what i got, but i don't mind sharing for a weekend with a brother in need, don't mind at all.... just keep in mind that the season isn't over, there are brothers on here that would mail u stuff if need be... and other brothers on here that will take u out for the weekend and let u use there gear... the season ain't over by no means... not with this family
