$25,000 worth of equipment stolen from Wounded Warriors!

Recommended Posts

This guy called our shop last week to see if we could help recover his stolen items. Pretty sad that someone would have done this, especially since it belonged to such a good group of people. I doubt these were fisherman that did this, so please keep your eyes peeled for bulk sales of these items! I believe this particular group is based out of Sacramento California.

From what I could gather, it sounds like most of the rods had names on them.

Here is the link to the news article for those interested: http://fox40.com/2015/11/25/thousands-in-fly-fishing-equipment-stolen-from-wounded-warriors/
