I left my entire fishing tackle on the side of a river by accident a few years back. Three rods and 10 years worth of lures.

Came back an hour later and it was all gone.

I label everything I own now hoping that people like you would be the ones to find it.

Great story and return, I suspect the reward of his smile will last you throughout your life.
I put those sticky address labels on my bigger ticket items for just such an occasion.

Great idea.  After losing a float coat this year, I'll be doing the same. 

You know, I used to complain about my mom writing my name and number on all of my stuff.  But now I wish I had done that!

I see posts on FB from both persons, the guy who left something behind and the guy who found stuff.  Yesterday it was a camera that someone lost.  The person who lost it ended up calling a nearby resort and having them look for it at the ramp.  They found it. It fell off his sled as he was walking back to ramp.  It makes a person feel good about others and the person finding it can feel good about themselves...and my son thinks I am paranoid as I always look back when going onto and off the ice..

A buddy recently found a bucket full of tipups and some jig rods at a parking lot. A few days later he checked them and the guy left his info on the flags, so he called him up and set up a meet. I think Iím going to start labeling my gear too, but Iím also kinda ocd with my stuff so I donít leave stuff.
