Yesterday at the vedder river at Borden Creek just above thurston Meadows me and my friend accidently in a rush forgot both of our rods. One was a shimano convergence matched with a Shimano Calcuta and the other was a Shimano Convergence matched with a Black 4" Hardy Conquest Center pin. Both we left side by side on the North side of the road. This happend at 2:00pm on Monday October 11th. To whomever has picked them up or if you know of the person that has we would greatly apprecite the return of our rods. They mean the world to us and both of us can not afford to replace the full value of these rods/reels and are deeply passionate about fishing. The Hardy Center Pin was a gift to me from a very good friend that has passed and has great sentimental value and i will give whatever i can to have it returned. The Calcuta was given to my friend from his father and also has great sentimental value. If you know of or have heard of anyone that has found these please please please please give us a call at the numbers below. We are putting everything we have together and have come up with a good cash reward to anyone who can return them and also a finders fee if anyone can locate them.

Cody @ 1-604-505-0353 or email @ [email protected] or call
Aiden @ 1-604-819-2235

I hope that the person who walked out of Borden creek and seen them there has a good heart and will return them, i wish that this never happens to anyone else and a reminder to check that you have everything before leaving the river, thank you to everyone for reading this post.

Go back and leave a poster with your details where you left them. Got me all my rods back from the Stave Lake boat launch last year. Good luck. There are decent people out there who will return your stuff.

Posted well over 45 laminated signs yesterday starting at the limit hole and all the way down to the rapids, also the on the way store and that little restaurant up the road. Also placed about 100 memo's on ppls windshields on the way down. Starting at Tamahi today and gonna work our way down posting more signs. Will be placing flyers on every windshield we see. I really hope someone decent picked them up and will return them, offering the best reward we can at the moment. Hopefully this weekend they will see the signs everywhere and give one of us a call. Thank you to everyone for the help and posts. All we can do is keeo doing what were doing. If anyone see's anybody using a Black Hardy Conquest please let me know, it has bright yellow/green backing on it and in the 3 years i've had this reel i've never seen anyone with one like it. The cage is removed and its a very distinct looking reel. Again thank you to everyone and i wish this never happens to another fisherman.

GOT OUR RODS BACK !!!!!! Recieved a phone call Saturday afternoon from a guy out in Abbotsford, was out fishing on Sat morning and his G/F was walking around and noticed the sign, took it off the tree and home with them and everything matched the descriptions ! Went out and met him right away, gave him the full reward and he was as happy as we were. Me and my buddy went straight to the river and both landed a few chrome coho's, jack spring, jack coho and many other boots. OMG did it ever feel good to cast my rod again, flet like a kid at Disney land ! thank you to everyone for your posts and comment. I hope that no one has to go through what we did. Remeber to check for everything before leaving the river, thank again!!!​

Just out of interest Gone, what was the combined value(ballpark) of the stuff you lost? $500 seems a very large reward. Was your impression that it was the reward that got your stuff back or the signs?

Fantastic...!

Great to hear gonefishin'...especially due to the sentimental aspect of the reel that was given to you by your friend that passed away...

What a feel good story, I've been following it from time to time and have to admit, I was sure there was no chance you would get them back...Glad to hear it turned out well!!!!

Bet you'll never forget them again...;););)
