Grrrrr....horrible morning.

Went to TGP this morning to wet a line. Didn't expect to catch anything, and wasn't surprised. That wasn't what ruined my morning.

It wasn't the trash I packed out.

It wasn't the crowd of unmasked people. (at least they didn't crowd up)

It wasn't the crappy north wind.

It was stupidity. My own.

Apparently when I packed the car Friday after fishing, I managed to destroy my favorite rod. Broke over a foot off the end of it. STUPID ME. Then to top all that off....walking down the bank to the first spot I wanted to try I fell on my butt. Scraped up my leg and arm, but nothing broken thankfully. Then my boss decides to text me about work tomorrow......

Stupidity cost me a rod and some skin. What a horrible morning, but it could have been least I wasn't at work!

Snoopy wasn't my fault!!! Someone ELSE ran him over. I still have Woodstock though, gotta be close to 20 years old now and still being used every winter!

This one was ALL me. Still can't believe I did that, and I'm CERTAINLY glad I don't spend 100's on new rods. Already picked up a replacement, long may it live.

Everybody has days like that. 💩 happens😭! Cheap , strong rod tube. ABS plastic pipe. With 2 end caps. I use em. No issues with broken rods loading or driving. Itís outside the truck , that I have issues !!
