Duncan fisherman anxious to get stolen custom fishing rods back

Two custom-made fishing rods are among several items that were stolen from a boat in the Maple Bay area late last month.

The boat, belonging to a Duncan fisherman, was on a trailer sitting on Walcot

Street overnight on Aug. 31 when the items went missing.

The missing fishing rods are both brown Hardy 10×10 models, one with a black reel and one with a silver reel. Both had the inscription "Built for Big G" on the handle.

"Our boat owner is very anxious to get his fishing rods back," Cpl. Krista Hobday said.

Anyone with information about the theft should contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
