A few years ago while staying at my in-laws, I really needed to get out and do some fishing. I ended up driving two hours to a spot I wanted to fish. Excited, I quickly rigged up and threw on my backpack and proceeded to hike about a mile to a secluded spot on the river. After fishing about 30 minutes I figured out the magic fly and hooked up on a very nice cutthroat for the river I was fishing. While landing the fish, my rod broke in half.
Of course, I had always been taught to keep an extra rod while fishing. Of course, I did not follow that rule and was left without a rod. So, after traveling two hours and hiking a mile, I headed back home to my in-laws, disgusted with myself.
I never break the rule of having an extra rod now, I can tell you.
