A friend of mine found a couple fly rods on the road out of Upper Dam Saturday evening... let me know what they are and we'll get them back to you.

Everyone, it seems, leaves stuff on the roof of the car once! I was fishing the Battenkill one time and got back to the car at sunset just as a fisheries truck pulled up. Out popped a pretty young woman who asked me if I wanted to do a angler’s survey. We talked as the sun set on the river until dark, long after we had finished the actual survey. I drove off like John Cleese in that scene in a Fish Called Wanda. When I happened to discover what I had done the rod and reel were long gone but luckily my vest had gotten tangled in the roof rack!

Love a happy ending :shock: True words Dan! Striper fishing one night, loaded my gear in the truck and about 1 mile down the road; "What was that noise?" Rearview mirror - rod and reel bouncing off Rt. 1 and into the ditch. Rod was toast, my son still uses the reel. Hasn't happened since as the rod/reel now goes IN the vehicle or leaning on the driver side mirror. ANYHING ON THE ROOF IS DOOMED (cup of coffee running down the windshield?) - add a pretty young woman and forget about it! Dan - this is fantastic - I know the feeling - "I drove off like John Cleese in that scene in a Fish Called Wanda."! Thanks for painting that picture!
