This morning I received confirmation that the replacement rod sections for my Abu Garcia Troutin Marquis Nano are in the air and on route to my location.
It will be good to have that rod complete again. I’m looking forward to fishing with it. Lesson learned…DON’T lift your fish with the rod vertically. I knew better, but lost focus and paid the price. And that rule generally applies for all of my JDM rods.
The other habit that was hard to break was doing the “BassMaster Classic hookset”…now I rely on super sharp hooks and/or a sweeping hookset. Sometimes just engaging the reel is enough to do the job.
Fishing is always a learning process and I am a life long student. I wouldn’t want it any other way…
