How did you get the fish in with the snapped rod?
Great effort!
You wouldnt think a rod of that quality would break?

Ah Rosco,
A wise man once told me "All rods break" - regardless of price.

Once you accept the inevitable it becomes much, much easier.

I can't believe it - another snapped rod

There is a curse on us.

That's bad luck Jay, but it took a great fish to do it.
