Bill, I wish I found it as I would be the first person to get it back to him.
Redfoot; did you have and ID on the rod or reel? Most of the stuff I find is not labeled. I think a great idea is to print some mailing labels and put them on the inside of your reel where the line labels are usually placed. Then; cover it with some scotch tape. You can do this on your rod as well.
Everything that I have found with some sort of ID; I have helped it get back to its home.
I will keep an eye out and my ears to the ground for you...
