The tackle bags contained several scented items -sunscreen, powerbait, bug spray, and were both old & used many times so had plenty of trout smell on them. Having had a bear encounted the night before, we believed it was better to be extra cautious. We never expected anyone to go through our stuff, let alone stea it. Since they were small, it was easier to place the whole bags into another, twice sealed, non-transparent tote bag. Whoever took our stuff probably took the whole larger tote bag and then later looked through it as everything inside was within secondary bags and completely hidden from view.
