Once was strange enough, but twice is amazing. Sean Visintainer at The Silver Bow Fly Shop in Spokane
Spokmpton , WA recently recovered two Meiser spey rods that were lost on the Spokane, and picked up by some tweakers in the couple of hours it took for the owner to realize they were lost. This is the second time in the last 3 years that Sean has busted fly rod thieves in the spokane area. The first time was similar to the recent account, where rods were stolen, and the thieves called Silverbow to try and pawn them. Both time Sean and his staff recovered the rods, and busted the criminals. Here is a link to the new story, which is just getting told on speypages. The first post is the story of the lost rods, and the good news is on the second page.
The Silver Bow is a great fly shop in the Spokane Valley, and if you live in Spokane you probably already know about it. But, if you are passing through on your way from Seattle to the cuttie filled rivers of North Idaho or the giant browns of Southwest Montana it is worth your time to stop in.
Here is a copy of the first story from 2008.
