LOST IPhone 5 on 4th of July downtown. If found please contact 951-265-0029

While releasing a fish in the middle of the White river at Sizmores above Buford on July 30, I bone-headedly failed to secure my landing net and watched it float away. Thought about swimming after it but its head start was too big. Slipped slogged to shore as fast as I could, abandoned my rod, pack and vest and ran, crawled, and clawed my way through willows, ditches and barbed wire, cussing myself all the while, to the down stream neighbor’s fence line, hoping to catch up with it. No luck. I know it’s a long shot, but it has 40 years of sentimental value so I’ve got to give it a go. If you find it or hear of someone who has, I would surely appreciate it if you would call me at 719-331-6465.
