There has been a rash of robberies around Front Range fly shops, reports
the fly shop managers who have my number input into their phones so they can quickly reject my calls The Denver Channel:
Several Denver-area fly fishing shops have been robbed in recent weeks, and now store owners are hoping to use social media sites to reel the suspect in.
In all, it’s estimated the thief has stolen as much as $10,000 worth of gear from seven stores in the Denver metro, as well as two stores in Pueblo.
After talking with one of the victims, I can tell you to keep your eyes peeled for new, high-end gear, maybe up for sale. Most people who fly fish with any consistency should know exactly what I mean by high-end gear. Information leading to arrest will get you a new Sage fly rod, compliments of the shops that have been taken.
I’m the last guy on the planet that needs another fly rod, so if you email me with any information I’ll pass it along and you’ll get the credit.
