    Done that at least once, nice to see it swim away peacefully, might have been nice on the smoker too, Thanks for sharing.

    A cheap rod... but a poor practice to pop a rod like that with the tension set too tight...

    still fun though

    First time it's ever happened to me. Wanted to throw it on the smoker but it's non retention there right now.

    Abu Garcia Veritas is $100+. Not cheap to me. I've caught countless salmon on that rod, but it's a 2 piece. Given where it broke, I think it was from getting sand and mud where it connects over the years. Maybe the drag was a little tight, but twitch jigs have thick hooks and you really have to burry that hook. Given the rod broke before the leader, I think that's what happened.
