Past 45 degrees

G'Day Streetfighter,

High sticking is when your fighting a fish and you lift the rod past 45 degrees during the pump. The further you go past 45 degrees the more likely you are to break the top section of the rod.

This is more a problem for graphite rods. The old ugly stik you can almost go to 180. Hehehe.
