I was just reading a post on a local forum that I belong to.
This gentleman fished the Salmon this past weekend also
He said that at one point on Saturday morning he could see about 120 other fisherman on stream
:shocking:
.... maybe your not so likely to get your bag back after all

What a great ending! It is great to know there are good people out there, all you hear on the news is bad stuff! Thanks for reporting back!:)

Hi melvinp,

I am so glad that all of your items were returned. There are good people in the world but all we hear about are bad people. I think one of the reasons you got it back is a Fly Fisher probably found it.

That's good news!hope you'll offer a big bunch of flowers to your wife:)
It's a good thing it wasn't your girlfriend's address:D
Reminds me a good one.I was guiding with the fischmeister years ago and lost a big fly box....when I arrived at the dinner table in the evening all our group was there.When I picked up my napkin in my plate I discovered a gift wrapped packet with a nice ribbon...with my flybox inside...everybody laughed a lot and so did I:D

JP: That is a good story!

melvinp: Congrats on getting your bag back! Reminds me of the time I lost my wallet while canoeing on a river in West Virginia. About two weeks later I got a collect call from a gal that was wade fishing that same river and my wallet floats by and hits her on the leg. I told her to keep the money in the wallet ($87) and please mail the wallet back. She was grateful and so was I.
