Lost: Tackle-sack in Lost John's

(how appropriate)

After having derigged the final pitch in Lost John's, I was struggling to get up the cascades against the force of the water.
Long story short - the tacklesack was swept away, and down the pitch :( (at least it wasn't me)

It's red, owned by KCC, contains a 30m rope and several krabs/MRs.

Of course, it may have found its way to Groundsheet Junction and thence to the sump, but with luck it's stuck in a meander somewhere on the way.
If anyone comes across it, I will gladly exchange it for a purple beer voucher.

Your lost tacklebag is now in the Kcc tacklestore. It was wedged in the streamway below the final pitch. We enjoyed a lost johns pull through to notts  ii - party of six in just over four hours

Beardy, you are a true gentleman  :clap: :clap: :clap:

- and taking an extra tacklesack through the choke is not to be sneezed at, so I am very grateful.
If you PM me your postal address (or bank details), I will send the promised beer voucher :)

PS - 4 hours?  <doffs helmet>
