    Found in the left hand turn lane of 162nd Ave and 28th st (Burton). I'm assuming it fell out of an open toolbox or something to that effect.

    I'm thinking since nobody here has reported it lost or stolen, then its fair game to get it sold. Taking offers.

    Ross Reels Gunnison 3 (Post 98 from what i have researched).

    Why don't you just hold off for a bit and see if someone posts that they lost their reel...oh wait...too late now...

    I held it for a week before coming here and posting this. If someone was going to report, the would have done so by now.

    Thanks for being a good guy and taking the time to research and post this. i'm sure somebody out there
    will be or is sick to their stomach leaving this on the trunk or roof of their rig. Brain farts really suck and
    pretty sure you've probably been on the other end of the stick at some point in life. If it was me I'd give
    it a bit more time on your end and if I was the guy that lost it I would definitely do more than a Thank you!

    Bernie now has his Reel and thanks to his reward, I'm that much closer to that Ruger SR9. I love happy endings. :)

    Happy fishing, Bernie! :)
