Always hate hearing about someone loosing a rod & reel but here is the most important lesson to remember, Definitely not worth it. That was a tough evening but it may have taught Dustin's daughter a valuable lesson that may save her some expensive gear in the future. Haha and then there is always that "the one that got away story". She will always have that too. And finally there is all that benefit of it helping clear out some of those flee market setups you have leaned in the corner. Thanks for the update.
