    To hear that irritates the hell out of me. Was your vehicle in a secluded spot? Were there any other people around?

    There is two things that boil my blood....a liar and a thief !!! Not only did they take your stuff but your daughters also...I feel for ya man. I really hope you find it. It wouldn't hurt to check the local pawn shops. Thieves can be pretty stupid like that. -G'luck-

    I'm really sorry to hear about the break-in.
    In my opinion this was not fishermen - this was done by thieves. Money was the ultimate goal. Pawn shops would be an excellent place to begin looking for your gear. Don't know about Kansas, but in Mo. anyone that sells ANYTHING to a pawn shop gets his/her/it's picture taken with ID.

    I know that the horse is out of the barn so it is too late to brand it but when you get your new gear maybe one of those vibrating engraving tools with your Dr. lic.# would be the ticket. The local police dept. where I am at has one that anyone can use for whatever needs to be marked. Really helps them with identification of recovered items, and pawn shops are leary about taking marked items.

    Again - sorry to learn of the loss.

    After I wrote my reply and entered it, I started to think that maybe someone would take it the wrong way.

    IN NO WAY WAS MY REPLY A REFLECTION ON ANY FISHERMAN.

    A fisherman will "borrow" your secret "honey hole" but won't touch your gear. They will lie about the big one that got away, and at the same time will loan you anything they have to help you fish.

    A lesson to all of us would be to be very wary of someone trying to sell us a "really good deal" on a piece of gear, just say NO.

    Really sorry if my post offended anyone. Didn't mean to.

    I, too, am sorry to learn of your loss. However, I would recommend against engraving any part of a rod that might bend because that will weaken the rod. You might consider epoxy-based ink instead.

    I'm sure nobody took that wrong.

    Just like a "hunter" that gets caught poaching.

    Did you make a police report? $1700.00 worth of gear is alot, I would check with your insurance company..Vehicle or homeowners/renters, I know my policies would cover such a loss, minus a $500.00 deductible, still I could replenish $1200.00 worth of my gear!!!

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss, I sure hope some of it turns up for you..unfortunately I wouldn't hold your breath, keep checking the pawn shops, If you find your belongings in a pawn shop call local authorities, problem is you'll need a police report number in order to get it back.. So if you haven't reported it, call immediately and do so.

    Good luck to ya,

    First I want to say I'm sorry to hear of your loss.Like stated before keep checking the pawn shops.Most likely dopeheads looking for an easy score so they can get easy money for thier drugs.Sure hope at least some of it will show up.Best of luck.
    And I don't think you offended anyone with the way you worded your first post.
