So yesterday at the Thorne my fishing rod Julius broke in a way that Duct Tape could not fix. It was terribly tragic. After hundreds of salmon and who knows how many trout, my spinning rod was done. I taped it more and still used it, of course.
I still fished with the wrecked rod. I want to be able to say I caught one last fish, but I can’t.
So I bought a new rod last night, an 8’6″ Shakespeare Ugly Stik to replace Julius.
It’ll work just fine.
