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

Fly rods just are not that durable for the most part. Exert much force on themand unless it is being transmited to you while you are fighting a fish it will break. I once pulled a rod out of my car by the second (from tip-top) ferrule, wuith the weight of that reel on it it snapped. Lessons learned.

Another important thing is to ALWAYS pull in a straight line when trying to get your flie out of brush or a tree. Pull it staight towards you in the opposite direction of where it is stuck. Pulling side to side can snap a rod very qucikly, though fortunately I have never had that experience.


Interesting thread.
