Here’s a familiar story. Devoted wife buys equally devoted husband a $400 flick stick for his birthday. Bursting with excitement he’s gone. Several hours later he returns, looking somewhat sheepish with a fantastical story about wrestling a 50kg Jew fish from the racks that, unfortunately, escaped. In the process, the brand new $400 flick stick was snapped in the battle. Of course it did, the rod was rated to 3kg. He insists the battle was worth it however. Devoted wife smells a rat.
It really doesn’t matter how earnestly the tale is told, the drama and action of the recount. Devoted wife knows full well devoted husband snapped said flick stick in the car door before he even left home. This very scenario has played out for generations. In fact, very few rods are lost to the heat of the battle. The vast majority of damaged rods can be attributable to car doors, roof racks and car boots. In the fury of fishing excitement your average angler can be a little bit too excited and often throws required caution to the wind.
