G'day Fellas, and Ladies,

LOST 1 X Offshore fishing rig consisting of:

1 X Garry Howard LBJ 15kg overhead boat rod

TLD 20 2 speed spooled with 50 Tuff braid + 2 drooper patternoster attached

and about a 3/4 lb snapper lead.

I know your pain. Roo lost a combo over the side earlier in the year, He didn't sleep for a week. As hard as it is, don't dwell on it, it will drive you insane replaying what you should have done, over and over in you mind. Good luck with the heeling and replacement process.
Cheers Kim

I just spoke to my old man, and he said there is a daiwa millionaire headed our way from hervey bay. If you spot it, you can have the tuna it is attached to, but Dad wants the rod and reel back. Cause: NOT IN ROD HOLDER ::)

A similar thing happened to my grandparents fishing for mackerel out of mackay about 10 years ago, but luckily enough for them they went fishing again the next day and caught their lost fishing rod. (no fish attached).. So never give up.....although the outfit may not be in the best shape if you recovered it, might make you hurt even more, so maybe just best to let it go........
