At the risk of opening a can of worms or maybe more accurately flies -

On a winter trout fishing trip in SE MN this year I found an assortment of flies and would like to find the rightful owner. I'm not interested in providing my email address so please reply here with a very detailed description of what was lost, the stream on which you lost it and the approximate location on the stream and when you lost it. I do have a credible lead that so far I'm unable to follow up, so I do know a few things about the owner.

In anticipation of lots of replies I will reserve the right to not answer posts that don't provide the correct information regarding this particular find.

Rick - if you have a better way of doing this please edit, delete or whatever you need to do and let me know.

Actually at first I did think "what a find" just because I couldn't imagine being able to find the owner. Lesson here - put some ID on your valuables.

It's a long story how the owner was actually found and it did take a little effort on my part, but more than that, I have to really attribute this to the hand of God.

I left a tackle box - yea the whole thing - at a boat landing in Ontario once and didn't get that back and that left a mark!! This was likely somebody's "whole tackle box" - there were 388 flies in this box - a friend counted them!

Lesson learned - I will do everything I can to find whoever lost whatever from now on.

If you had found individual flies strung throughout the trees along various rivers down there, I'd say they were mine.

Truly a stand up thing you are doing. I'd like to think I'd do the same thing. I do hope you find the owner.

When I was about 6 or 7 years old I had received an Umco 2 sided metal tackle box from my parents for Christmas. I still own it to this day. But while we were camping I left it on the dock and walked back to the camp site. When I couldn't find it later my parents re-traced my steps with me and we found it on the dock. Sad thing was that it was empty. I've lost single lures that cost more than the contents of the box and never felt a thing. Whenever I see the box I always think about leaving it there.

Excellent Job uffda smile.gif!
Do onto others as you would have done to you! Losing valuables is no fun, & I think we have all been there at some time, and trust me, honesty pays!

Its nice to know some people will watch your back.

A friend of mine this last weekend got wet and left his vest on shore to dry. He came back later and it was gone. This happened east of Lanesboro near Whalan somewhere....He was bummin!

You got THAT right Dark30!

There's NOT many of US left either! grin.gif

Sorry to see your bud lost so much. It IS too bad these things do not get returned to their rightful owners for sure!

I am thinking the person that HAS this vest should be feeling awfully guilty if they plan to keep it and wear it!! Kinda best to have eyes in the back of their heads to see the owner comin to kick his butt with if they DO have guts enuf to wear it!!!

Maybe it will show for him yet(?)

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
