On Saturday I went for my first walk of the year on the beach between Gronant and Talacre. I saw a man walking up from the low water mark with a rod in his hand. Being a friendly kind of fella, I asked him how he got on. He told me that he found the rod washed up on the beach, the rod and reel not look that good. A bit of a mystery would’nt you agree?

Did you notice if it was a beach rod or a boat rod?
It may have gone overboard if off a boat.
That area is well known for the tide coming in behind you,maybe someone got in a situation and left the rod and saved themselves.
I got in a similar situation at New Brighton near the lighthouse on new years day night about 4 yrs ago.Luckily my mates were a bit younger than
me and helped me out. lol!

No the rod was as long as a bass rod and the reel was a medium sized fixed spool. Definitely to long go an upside rod.

No missing persons been on the news in that area.
In the dark with a bit of a mist you need a compass at Talacre.
Probably someone sick of catching pin whiting or blanking and chucked it in in temper. lol!
Unless a mermaid made him an offer he couldn't refuse and he decided to use his other tackle. rolling laugh
