Ah the modern world … so much technology, how can anything go wrong? We have things down like clockwork.
Until someone leaves behind their fishing rod, that is. A lost pack rod (likely fell off the back of a bicycle) caused a real mess when it was mistaken for a pipe bomb in Humboldt County. It shut down traffic for upwards of an hour, before the explosives experts arrived and determined it was … a fishing rod.
Better make sure that pack rod is stowed next time or you might be seeing it live on local news next to the bomb squad!
