    Good day fellow fishermen!
    A month ago, I had a fire where I rent in Langley, I live in Parksville. I had all of my rods on a rod rack in Langley. All were lost. Because the place I was renting had a wood stove for heat, no one was willing to sell me insurance. I presumed that my insurance on the island would cover me, sadly mistaken!
    My island reels were in neoprene covers, mounted on the rods, they survived, ( after several hours of cleaning) but the rods melted. Also lost, my Calcutta level wind, and a few abu Garcia rod and reels.
    If any of you fine people have any old, spare mooching rods you were thinking about tossing, I would GREATLY appreciated taking them off your hands.

    Very sad to hear for your loss. I also rent and have a wood stove for heat and had no problem getting insurance. They just wanted a pic of the certification on the stove or something like that. I’m covered for like $75k for contents. Now that I think about it, I don’t think I sent them a pic
