Good luck getting your rod back. I've done that a couple of times over the years, so I know how you feel. Just last week I left my crossbow sitting on the ground next to my truck at a parking area, and drove away. It was dark and I was too busy putting my treestand away, and just spaced it! lol I was down the road a bit and realized something wasn't right. I looked into the back seat and saw my CB wasn't there! Turned right around and went back. It was where I left it. A close call!

Lost a rod on the creek once... once!

So sometimes a found rod is returned other times just someone else's good luck.

I hope your combo was found by an honest person and that they read here. Call the nearest fly shop(s) and let them know as well. Sometimes they are honest too.

The very best thing you can do to convey trustworthiness is be genuine. And if you can't, just fake it.

Gotta leave it on your hood, leaning across the driver's side of the windshield. I've been known to trip over things that I left by the door, so I wouldn't forget them, when I was leaving. The hood and rod works.

To err is human, to forgive depends on the error.

Better yet - make a habit of putting the rod and reel away first thing when you get back to the vehicle.
That's what I do

I - and just about all of my fishing buddies- have left rods on top, or besides a vehicle also.

Your rod is always the most likely thing to be left somewhere you don't want to leave at the end of the day. Always put it away first instead of leaving on your vehicle or leaning against it. I know, I left it on my truck nce, luckily I was only pulling out of a parking space when I realized what what I'd done and got it off the truck.
A friend once left a rod on the same truck, and later about 5 miles down the road we heard it hit the highway. Lucky for him.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?
