A friend of mine makes custom fishing rods out of St. Croix blanks. He made me a 7'6" spinning rod. I put a $175.00 reel on it bringing it's total value up to about $370.00.
I took it on a fishing trip in Canada. It was snagged while I was throwing a large buck tail lure for northern pike. The whole shit ended up in the lake. I thought it was still attached to the line so i reeled in and then noticed the broken line slipping through the eyes of my rod. Jumped in the 40 degree water fully clothed to get it. I went down about 3' over my head and still did not reach bottom. Gone for good. including a $25.00 buck tail. tried hooking it with a anchor for a few hours but no luck. not a good first day of the trip.
