I will add:

If I know the person who's disc I found:

1. I will do my best to get it back to them

or

2. I will throw it deeper into the woods

Worse color ever.
I found a 165 star tee teebird in black. It was kinda fun to throw.
The third time- in like 5 rounds- somebody tried to give it back I said: man, its your problem now.

Worse was the fully Clear fad from 2007-2009, I lost a bran new XL Z that was clear from the tournament at the tournament. The mold was lost due to wind gust taking it into a bush I could not find the disc but 11 years later in 2018 I got a call for the disc saying some Disc Golfers did find the disc at that time, the pine bush had been removed for some reason and it was found. I told them to keep it since his wife loved the broken in DX Leopard like S flight the disc did, yeah that worn out just sitting there over the years and it became a opaque clear over the years too.

The worst is a flye-dyed disc an any combination of blue/green (and yellow is right up there).
Ugh

Agreed on the clear discs.
Had a clear QMS with a green flye-dye.
Like you, I saw it go into the bush and still couldn't find it.

Yellow is not bad if the right yellow. I agree clear is the worst and luckily only a few brands want to keep making the plastic or they only make them for big tournaments.

I probably buy the worst colors for discs. I'm bagging a h3 that looks like a sheet of glass currently. I also have no less than 5 other clear discs I myself, chose to buy, looking at pictures of them online. I also buy brown and sweet looking burst discs that are essentially camouflage. They look great online but when I get them I just think..not again Haven't lost any yet though.

I recently found a fly dye that was purple and black. One of the worst I have seen as far as ever being able to find again.

One even called me a week later and said he got busy so he didn't show up (guess he couldn't call either) and wanted me to drive 20 miles and just leave it on his porch. NOT!

I've done this in the past. Snap a picture of me placing the disc under a trash can or behind a notable feature of the course, and just send that in a quick text. Takes no time, and it's like a little treasure hunt for the owner.

Most the courses I play now though, have a dedicated lost and found guy.

I really like this solution I used to take the discs to DiscStalker after calling the owner, but now that DiscStalker is closed I'll try this 'under the trash can' method.
