Default My stuff is gone...

So I was house sitting my grandmother's house while she was recovering from major surgery for while. She recently came home so my wife, 2 yr old twins and I moved at the end of February. My brother moved in with my grandmother. I did not take my fishing gear with me because since it was not time to fish I planned on getting it later... Problem is when I got there on Friday I immediately noticed something was missing...ALL OF MY STUFF WAS GONE. Everything but one naked freshy rod that DID have a reel on it. My guess is my brother or mother gave it away because they have no respect for other people's things. So now I am starting from the ground up...again. Friday and Saturday was spent stocking up on bass, trout and crappie gear. I got those first because I can start fishing sweet water now. The salt water gear is a little more expensive and since I just moved I will have to very slowly regain what I've lost. Unbelievable. Maybe I should have saved the venting for my second post...

That is really horrible and hopefully it wasn't anything expensive to replace.

Thumbs down Re: My stuff is gone...

I had the same thing happen to me and a friend of mine. Personally I lost equipment that I had collected over the course of 8 years of sweet water fishing, all my baitcasters, spinning rods + reels, 4 fly rods ranging from 5-8 wieght, over a 1000 flies (anyone who doesn't tie there own knows how much that hurts, I lost a couple hundred that I tied myself) and of course all of my tackel bags and boxes.

I learned a serious lesson, after a big trip don't be lazy and take the crap outa your car or get screwed.....hard.

Years later and I'm no where near caught up, I'm doubtful that I will ever catch up...

Thankfully it wasn't a huge plug collection like some of you gents own...

That's cold. There is no other description for that kind of behavior.
I don't get it.
Well I hope you get what you need.
