I once had my bloody tackle box stolen from right beneath my nose in a open front brolly while I was asleep it was the morning aswel, there was some Chav fishing the otherside with a staffy. I think it was him as I helped him out earlier in the day and even gave him a lead core leader, so he must have seen inside my tackle box and thought "I want that suff". My phone and a few other bits were right next to it don't know why he didn't take that stuff aswell. I was fuming I just had a gut feeling it was the chav I helped I even plucked up the courage to polity ask him weather he's seen my tacklebox lol. Oh and I forgot to mention my mate I was with also got done and got his throwing stick and rod tip tops which was actually inside his Titan. And to top it all of I told the bailiff and he done fu#k all about it didn't even looked like he gave a sh*t tbh, the nob has been fired now anyway. The only time a fish the place now is night guesting

Try to avoid fishing places with Chav's as much as possible.
Cannot stand it TBH, the uneasy feeling when Chav's pass asking silly questions just to see what youv'e got on the bank.

Not for me.

This is one of the things I'm concerned about when doing an overnighter. I fish on quite a rough pond which is known for it's chavs. I can never sleep easy at night in the bivvy with the bivvy door closed because the slightest sound and I think someones out there taking my rods and reels. This is one of the reasons why I never buy top end gear, I make do with 50 reels and 50 rods which tbh serve my well. But it's sad really, that I don't want to buy top end gear because if it does get nicked, it wont be THAT much of a blow.

I wouldnt wish it on anyone mate, I was insured when mine got stolen.... but had loads of trouble with the insurance getting it replaced I have now taken out specialist fishing tackle insurance.
Im disgusted to hear more and more people are getting robbed on the bank too...... My syndicate is very secure but after some of the things i'm reading I'll be carrying a bat/metal pole or something similiar under my bed too. I always take my dog so she warns me when someone is coming, but a good chunk of metal always helps fend these tossers away

Hi Lads.
I am new to the site and am just exploring all the various threads, came accross this one as theft has happened to me too. It was November last year and the bas***** forced my garage door open. I live in Nuneaton near Coventry. I had done a bit of tackle upgrading, buying and selling on various sites...... Anyway, about 3.30pm I gets a call from the wife going mad about me selling my gear....... She had been into the garage to see my rod bag had gone, calls me going mad 'cant believe' youve sold your rods etc' she says. To which I reply no i have not!! she says well they aint 'effin here!! She turns round and all my oither kit had gone too!! GUTTED aint the word. I race home from work and they have taken everything aprt from my barrow, Nash all terrain evo and my spod rod & reel. I had the best part of 9k's worth of gear gone. Amongst it was 3 Shimano tribal extreme rods 3lb 12ft, 3 Shimano Tech MGS reels, Delks with receiver duo carbs and nitelights, Trakker Crossfire and brand new wrap, Diem holdall and rucksack, Nash Sleep system, Fox Digi scales, Fox double sided f box FULL of terminal stuff, Primus ETA power stove, Greys marker rod and Emblem spod reel, loads of bait, Plus a load of other stuff, I had everything you could want or need to fish. My mum sadly passed away a year before and and left me a little bit of money, money I decided I would use to upgrade my gear so this was mostly bought with inheritance money which makes it more upsetting. What makes it worse was that it all happend at 11am!!!!!!!!!!!!! These guys also stepped over lots of power tools (I'm a Carpenter by trade btw) I had a 1500 road racing bike they walked past to get at my gear too!!
I believe they would have got more but for my dog, who was running around the downstairs going mental at the people in the garage.
Luckily, and I say luckily in a loose way, I was insured..... to an extent!! My garage is connected to my detached house via a door into the kitchen. The garage also has a bedroom on top of it...... My insurance company kindly decided that my garage is an outbuilding so they would only be paying me 5% of my contents value!! They were offering me 2k!!!!!!!! After a SHED load of hassle they relented and offered me another 2.5k as my wife has a certain item cover for 2.5k on the policy and due to the circumstance they will add this to the claim. It took me a hell of a lot of hassle to get this.
The 4.5k I got back replaced my gear, once I'd got everything I think was stolen it had cost me about 800 on top of the insurance payout.
The people who do this are UTTER SCUM, the lowest of the low and lower. All I will say is Check your house insurance to make sure you are PROPERLY covered, i wasnt and it nearly cost me. It was only the generosity of my insurance company that got me more money so I didnt have to find it. If you dont have insurance then GET SOME! And make sure your shed or garage is properly secure..... mine was, or so I thought, but it is now! you would need a tank to get in it!! But seriously guys, I dont think we will ever stop these scumbags but just make sure YOU do all you can to make it damn hard for them to get it, and if they do then make sure you are financially covered. As for thefts on the bank, well, i know if i ever get threatened on the bank then they can take it.... its not worth getting hurt for, plus I have insurance should this (fingers crossed it wont) happen.
Sorry to go on so long!!!!!

damned good idea mate. where did you get yours from? If I lost my tackle it would take years to build back up, as it I'm still building bits and bobs. theres always something a angler needs or wants to upgrade then some scumbag takes it, 80 is a bargain compared to the value of our gear. I must admit not looked at audio only.

Sorry for your loss mate. I think im going to get one of those infa red pens the police give out I know its probably pointless but you never know I could keep an eye on ebay then check if i thought something might be mine. The problem is the scum that stole it probably sold it someone that knew it was stolen. Keep an eye on gumtree,ebay ect and see if you see anything looks like yours. sorry mate i feel for you. scumbags
