Rod Duluth angler Paul Kosmatka is fortunate to have survived being swept into a frigid Lake Superior while fishing the mouth of the Lester River last week. But before he was rescued, he lost his grip on his prized Orvis fly rod. When Craig Juntti snagged the expensive rig the next day, he decided to track down its owner. “I looked it up on the Internet and this rod goes for $795,” Juntti said. “After what he went through, he deserves to have it back.” The Duluth News-Tribune.
