Dude, you were trying to teach a tame trout to become a wary trout, and thus a more formidable fish for you and others to catch in the future. That is a laudable thing. You did all of us a service by catching that trout, and teaching it a valuable lesson. And in the process, you also now have a catch on your new rod, and that is also a good thing! By my reckoning, what you did was good for everybody, including you and the rod. You should feel proud to have helped us in such a manner, and your willingness to take one for the team and sacrifice on our behalf is duly noted and appreciated.

;-)
