The Leap Frog Bloggers Prompt (1.2)

image credit dmushrush
Okay if you don’t know how this works here are the details. I am going to post a prompt whether it is writing, photo, or recipe (not likely as I’m not a good cook). If you would like to partake just fulfill the topic I select, link back to this post, leave a comment with the link to your post and I will pick my favorite one by Thursday of next week. Then who ever I pick will do the next prompt with the same rules. By the way this was started by Rory at R-Dub Outdoors. I hope you enjoy.

My topic is
Lost, Stolen, or Malfunction Gear which altered your hunting or fishing trip, and how did you overcome it?
I know this has happened to me on several occasions. Having my gun jam or my reel not function properly when I have a big fish on. The one that sticks in my mind the most is my first trout fishing trip with my Father-in-law and Brother-in-law.
It was about three years ago and I was super pumped to go on this fishing trip, so I went out and purchased a bunch of  new gear, a small tackle box, a bunch of new spinners, a new net, a fishing rod that came apart in the middle, a new reel, and some new sun glasses.
After a four hour drive we stopped at the first river. I was so excited to use all of my new gear I forgot to zip my back pack all the way.  I was fishing and having a blast when I decided to change my spinner. I looked into my bag and realized the top half of my new fishing pole was gone. At this point we had already walked a mile and a half up the river bank and let me tell you it wasn’t an easy walk.
Feeling rather deflated I walked back down stream looking for the top of my new pole with no luck. At least I had my ultra light which I had been fishing with the first hour of our trip and would have to use for the next three days.
On the way back down river I look all over again, but nothing I was so bummed. I was so looking forward to using my new pole.
What did I do to overcome this unfortunate situation? I was thankful I had brought two rods along, and concentrated on trout fishing and enjoying my time with my pals.

Good luck and let's generate some traffic to each others blogs.
