I saw this ad on craigslist in Rhode Island tonight and I am copying the ad here just in case any one can help. I feel sorry for the guy
I am reposting as I haven't gotten these back and hopefully someone has seen them!! Please contact me if you have!
Someone stole three of my fishing poles, nice ones at that. I have searched pawn shops, bar rooms, fishing spots etc.. They are drop poles that I use out in the ocean off my boat. My girlfriend passed way and one of the poles was (me and her had attended a class together making them) made with her and it means the world to me. Not only did I lose my fishing buddy, I lost the pole we made together in a class. It has my name on it too so it's easily traceable!! (Unless they scraped it off which would be noticable too!!) I am offering a LARGE reward for this pole or any of the three back, maybe all of them, but if someone gets me the one I made, I will reward you handsomely. If your the crackhead that stole it, no questions asked to you either. I will pay you as well! That pole means the world to me and I just need it back. You have no idea how upset this has made me!! Money is money,.. I have some for whoever has MY pole! No questions asked, I promise!!
Here it goes:
The first and most important is my hand-made pole. It's blue and black, kinda like a lighter shade of electric blue. It is a 6ft pole with green spiderline on it. It has a 700 calcutta reel (gold colored) and it has a picture of a striper under the clear coat along with my name "Bruce Bannister" on it too! It may have the year also.
The second was a 400 calcutta (gold colored reel) on a 6ft (I think) black penn slammer bait rod with clear tips with spider line.
The third was an 400 Okuma reel on the same kind of rod as above except this reel had clear line if I remember right...
I think these sizes etc are accurate. Listen, even if you can't get them but you know where they are or have seen them, I PROMISE, I would be so greatful, I wouldn't say a word but a lead to me finding them will get you some cash too! I cannot bare to part with that first rod. It's killing me and I believe someone knows where it is and I can find it. Cash talks so let it talk to you!! Please help and I thank you.
