Default Re: The Broken Rod Poll; Edited, New Catagory added.

The first time I ever broke a rod tip was during winter fishing, I got impatient with the iced-up guides and then got careless and was trying to clear the tip-top, I just reached up there, bent the rod to much while flicking at the tip-top with my thumb and snapped about an inch off the top. I just kept fishing with the damn thing frozen to my line! Now my 9' 6WT is actually 8'11.

This summer the foot of a snake guide at the middle ferrule just pulled broke free from the wraps. Still a mystery to me. I fixed that one.
