Re: The Broken Rod Poll;
I caught this nice big bow I had to chase down river and I wound up wading out into some boot sucking mud. After I got the fish unhooked and released the rod was sitting on the ground half on land half in the muck. As I tried to pull myself out of the muck I grabbed the tip section of the rod for some unknown stupid reason, got sucked back into the mud while at the same time lifting the rod by the tip. SNAP.
