One day you will have to tell us the story of how your rod broke.

Sounds like there are some incriminating details in there.

Shhhh! You NEVER ask that! If it were on a fifty pound tarpon or trying to futily fend off the Swedish Bikini Team in a vain but heroic attempt to protect his virtue he'd have said. It was probably a car door or ceiling fan and we never talk about that.

LOL! not this guy? if a bikini team attacked me ...... I would let them have their way with me! I don't fight with girls?

Nick,
I can't say what really happened to my fly rod! I live in central PA and I often fish at the world famous "Yellow Breeches" (only a half hours drive from my place). This is Orvis country! I always wear my Orvis waders, my Orvis vest, and a Orvis fly rod! ...... if I didn't, I wouldn't be allowed to fish there!

So naturally, I will now assume that you broke the rod in a jousting match with a staunch Fishpond advocate.

Ok, let the games begin, but first the ground rules!

Whomever comes up with the best story of how Rick broke his Helios (not the closest to the truth, just the best story) agrees to be sworn to secrecy and Rick has to send him a Private Message explaining all the gory details on how he really broke the rod...

Ohh, ooh, I'll go first. It WAS an Orvis after all. So I'm thinking he was having a slow day and found a nice live hopper, stripped off an Adams and hooked it up. The rod yelled "Allah Ackbar" and exploded in simple disgust.
