Fish Tales robbery


Recommended Posts

Fish Tales has been a generous donor to our annual auction over the years.  Am posting this from the Alberta Outdoorsmen forum in case we are able to help in any way:

Fish Tales Fly Shop
Our faith in people is shaken this morning.

Our day started with a call from the alarm company reporting multiple alarms at the shop. Shortly after the call, we arrived at the shop to three police vehicles parked in front and a shattered front door to the shop. The thief or thieves seemed to have been on a targeted mission for reels and were gone before police (or us) arrived - 15 minutes or less.

Today is being spent assessing all that was taken, completing the police report, getting the door replaced, starting the insurance process, and trying to figure out how to best get the word out to the fly fishing community about the stolen goods.

On behalf of Fish Tales (Dave, Nancy, and our team) please be on the lookout for reels that seem "too-good-to-be-true." Thieves left here with about four dozen higher-end reels - Islanders, Sage, Nautilus, Brittania, Orvis, Hardy, and Tibor. Feel free to share this post as the more widely it is shared the better.

We will be watching on-line and have already alerted other shops in Calgary. We will list a few specific reels later today so folks can watch for these on their local forums. We'll notify police with any possible leads.

Thank you.
