Re: stolen gear - reminder to lock you $h*t up
If you haven't filed a police report then listen to me;
FILE A POLICE REPORT
It's what I tell everybody who gets ripped off, and sure enough two weeks later they find the culprit. Some bored cop who just looked at your complaint on his way to get coffee sees a guy with a bunch of fishing rods, gets curious, brings up the report on the scanner . . . etc.
Most people are skeptical, but I'm telling you it can't hurt.
Good luck. That's really unfortunate.
