oh i think they knew exactly the value of the equipment before they stole it and have no doubt it will be if not already in the hands of some tackle collectors with no moralty

With respect Neil , does it matter why he needed the tackle ?Many of the items are irreplaceable as they are one off bespoke items . I struggle to understand why someone would want them ,as a lot of their intrinsic value is in their uniqueness , with dedications to the owner of the rod written on the item , as such they would be very hard to sell on .I would think that any of the dealers in cane rods and other high end tackle wouldn't touch them and would be very active in helping to catch the thief . A terrible shame ..

It smacks of more of an obsession than anything else Mike, if it was works of art that you can hang on your wall, then maybe, but like stolen works of art they really cannot be sold. Sorry but I really don't get why fishing tackle has to be personalised anyway, however I do have a Torrix that is dedicated to Stan..

I have been to houses where the rooms are filled with glass cases full of reels and rods in sequence lined up.

Certainly works of Art.

However, this collection would have probably have appeciated in value at a far greater rate than any bank investment.

Whoever it is.......he was blooming rich!

Compared with an unmade bed.

Most definately.

If an unmade bed can be regarded as art and even win an arty prize and a few bob then I definitely reckon a split cane rod can constitute art. Beauty being in the eye of the beholder and all that. I still adore Pan's People but my wife just can't see it. And I've shown her countless YouTube clips of them doing what they do best but she won't be convinced. It's got to the point now where I just watch them on my own.

If that was his pension fund that has gone he's not so rich now is he Graham ? I hope the toe rag who stole it has his collar felt soon .
