    Neversink Gorge: LOST FLY ROD & REEL

    Dear NEFF,

    I am just reaching out to you in regards to a lost fly rod and reel. On Saturday April 25th, my buddy and I parked at the Katrina Falls Road parking lot, entering from Rock Hill. Upon returning to our vehicle at 2:45pm, I placed my fly rod and reel on top of the vehicle to take my waders off. As I did this, flashbacks of my dad putting his size 13 boot up my ass were extremely vivid for doing this when I first BEGAN fly fishing.

    At exit 119 on 17E, we pulled into the Valero to refuel and that is when we realized I was missing my fly rod and reel. We quickly turned around and headed back to the lot but it was nowhere to be found. I scanned the sides of the road to no avail. I am hoping a Good Samaritan has it in his or her possession awaiting contact information

    The rod is a 10’ 5 weight G-Loomis Streamdance GLX.
    The reel is a bronze Galvan T-5 with WF Shark Skin fly line. Next to the foot of the reel seat I carved in my initials, “C.T.”

    If you have in possession or know anything about the fly rod and reel above please call/text me at:
    862-268-0321

    Or email me at:
    Cdtakacs1@gmail.com

    Thank you very much for your time.

    Best,
    Christopher Takacs

    Re: Neversink Gorge: LOST FLY ROD & REEL

    Dude hope it gets returned. 2 years ago I put my zenith on top of truck after a late night fishing the brodheads. Tired and in a rush to get home I forgot. Drove out onto 191 and heard it fall off. By the time I had pulled over 2 trucks driver the rod. Reel was intact and bottom of rod ok top2 sections not so much. Good luck

    Re: Neversink Gorge: LOST FLY ROD & REEL

    Mac,

    Thank you man.

    I went back as quick as I could. Prob 20-25 minutes from time rod fell off to the time I got back.

    It's only really hikers and fly fishermen there so I'm hoping someone is kind enough to return it.

    I left notes on all cars present as well as structure with the maps/regulations.

    Crossing my fingers.

    Thanks, Mac.

    Best,

    Chris

    Re: Neversink Gorge: LOST FLY ROD & REEL

    That sucks I hope you get your gear back. The first thing I always do is put my rod away and reel away. I don't like leaving a rod on the car or leaning against a tree. I am afraid it will fall and I don't want my reel to get scratched because it fell off the car. I have left sunglasses on the top of my car never a rod. That is a harsh lesson to learn. We get this post every year. Check with the local fly shops it is a start.

    No problem, buddy!

    How does that rod and reel feel? Must feel nice to hold something that costs more than your month's salary.

    months salary? I thought he drove a forklift.. pretty sure your set up is worth more than a few paychecks for that peckerhead..

    Sorry to hear about the rod/reel.. try giving the nearest fly shop a call as often good dudes turn lost items in..

    Re: Neversink Gorge: LOST FLY ROD & REEL

    I was following my father out of a fishing spot last week when I noticed his rod on the top of his truck. Luckily I stopped him before it fell. Before Ido anything iI always put my rod in the truck. Then before I drove off I make sure I did. I'm kinda ocd like that.

    Beads? We don't need no stinkin beads.

    Re: Neversink Gorge: LOST FLY ROD & REEL

    I can't remember where I picked up this idea, but I put my rod right on the windshield as soon as I get to the car, in plain view of the driver's seat. I usually see it again as I walk to the driver's door. If I ever make it as far as sitting in the seat, I imagine I would see it again before starting the car. Sorry it won't help this time. Good luck with the rod. Feuds with CMM not withstanding, making fun of a working man for how much he brings home sucks.

    It does. But the bright side is that he was simultaneously bragging about having left a stupidly expensive rod and reel on top of his car. Which is a hilarious thing to brag about.

    We've all done it. I left a rod in the x-ray machine at JFK security. (Got that one back a month later.) I capsized my canoe in the main stem and sent one down the river. Pieces of it are probably in Port Jervis and Easton. I snapped another one by rolling up the window of my car. Bill Dance has nothing on me.

    I now compensate for my stupidity with my cheapness. Lose a rod, buy another one.
