Drennan Acolyte.....The Reunion !!!!!!!!!

Some of you may know that I recently lost my Drennan 14 foot Acolyte Plus float rod, unbelievable I know . . . . . . . .
 in fact, I lost it three weeks ago but only realised last week as I was preparing for another trip.
I didn't realise I had lost it because I hadn't used it on that last session so I thought it was safely nestled in it's tube in my holdall. Imagine my horror when I looked in my bag and it wasn't there !!!!! I turned the house upside down looking for it.........no joy.
The last throw of the dice would be to put a post on the forums and face book to see if anyone had found it..... Bloody long shot I thought !!!!!!!!!!

One the forums was the Wigan Anglers forum, a club I have recently joined. Imagine how I felt when the club secretary contacted my and told me that someone had found an Acolyte on one of the club stretches of the Ribble and that the finder would contact me asap.
The chap who found it is called Andy Hart from Chorley a true gentleman. I called round to his house today to pick up the Acolyte and offered home £20 as a thank you.
 He was having none of it !!!!!!!!!!!!!
And would not except a penny.
He didn't want any of my floats either as he is a tip man, however, he uses baiting needles so I am going to make him a set as a thank you.

I hope this little story restores yor faith in humanity . . . .It certainly restored mine.

Thank you to all who have helped make this happen.

Until the next time.
