Due to the amount of tackle being stolen at the moment, has it come to the time where a specific thread (stickied perhaps) in the General Carp Discussion section be created?
This thread would then be a single reference point for those unfortunate anglers to post concerning their loss, but also for ways of protecting our tackle and the various sites etc there are to help find it.

Hey there, unfortunately came across this thread looking see how I can get the word out on my fishing gear that was stolen last week on Friday morning.

I live in higham, Kent mostly fish at darenth lakes with my fiancè.

The gear I actually have photos of, the box seat I have was my dads and was his when he used to take me and my brother fishing when we were really young.

Has a bit of white paint splashed on the red seat, plastic is black and I think the make of it is Maverick or beginning with a M and is blue in writing, and the buckle or metal parts are all rusted, and the inside lid is wooden. The lid is actually broken, so can only be opened back to front. The strap actually acts as the hinges. Hardly worth taking but it does has memories.

As I said I've got pictures of my gear. I had 3 reels stolen, and 2, 2 piece rods. Both had 2 of the 3 reels on them. One rod was a silver quantum rod, and the other was a cheap black and brown rod I bought from a sea fishing shop so has a fish pictured just above the handle. Both have reels on them. I actually have a blue version of the brown rod so that could be used as a reference in a picture. The rods were still rigged up, with fself weighted see through floats on the line, with very small shots and hooks.

Had 2x 2 pint bait boxes both green, one has a red maggot dye stained lid, and 1 black and orange 1 pint bait box, 1x small blue bait box with like the old fishing mag on the lid I think tackle times or something like that, I actually stored shots in there. Also 2 reels of line, one still unopened and one opened. Had some small line in there which as bright green line and camo line. Had a white and yellow tackle box also old and very squeaky when opening it, has a crack on the see through lid, this was in the seat too filled with various sized floats, shots and hooks, de-hooker equipment. Had some other stuff like a brown catapult, some self made rod rests, and folded up un-hooking green mat. Also had my fold away and adjustable green net taken too.

Unfortunately, they also helped themselves to my dads and France's tools too... So we're all super unhappy at the moment. Also prevent my dad from finishing his job off, as he had his transformer and welder stolen.

Very disappointed in this, and please do keep a look out. Many thanks

Hi Andy and all forum members.

Just thought I'd bring this forward as I would still appreciate finding and meeting the culprits who nicked my gear, some of it relatively unique or exclusive. Any help or information, in assisting, will be rightly rewarded accordingly. Total confidence can be assured. Cheers. Deep

To be honest Andrew, although I am sure your company and products could be an asset to all anglers (and others) this site has certain rules concerning advertising. I would suggest you contact the site owner, Karlos after reading the header In this post, then contact Karlos by PM

tip for tracking stuff that gets stolen

invest in a couple of battery powered motorbike trackers if you leave them in rod bag bivvy tackle bags etc it could help if anything does go missing

most of them have around 30 day battery life. may be worth considering.

i got one of these http://www.smart-indicators.eu/c-1775367/bivvy-alarm-for-delkim/

connects to your delk receiver tested it a few weeks back works a treat

you can even put it in your car/ van and take your delk receiver into the house overnight if you need to i never leave my gear in car overnight but there is people that need to from time to time
