    Exclamation Found: Rod & Case [Clinch] 11/13/10

    My friend found a rod and case on the bottom of the Clinch River this morning. I know he and I would like to see it get back to the proper owner. If you have lost this or know of someone who has; please send me a description so that I can ensure it gets back to the proper owner.

    I wrote my name phone & address on my fly boxes. How do you mark a rod & reel?

    It really does not take much to label your gear. Just use your imagination and make it durable. I have spoken to Byron about trying to address this issue and creating an opportunity for fly fishermen to be able to get back their gear.


    • An easy way would be to use a toothpick and some enamel paint to mark your name and phone number on the base of the rod. Similar to the picture attached:



    • However, the simplest way is to create a waterproof label or to attach a mailing label to the inside of your reel close to where you label your fly line.



    Please take a moment to label your stuff. At-least you will have a chance to get it back...

    Thanks again for advice that seems obvious in hindsight

    I need to sucker you into a boat ride on the Clinch someday. I don't get out that way often and really only know the area from the Dam to Millers Island well, and vaguely down to Peach Orchard, and have never been below there I have a canoe I would like to take but would like to see it first to get a better idea of what to expect.

    Sure! Send me an email when you are thinking about hitting the Clinch.
