When you’re deep in the Alaskan backcountry and you end up breaking your fly rod, sometimes you have to adjust accordingly. Anglers Jackson Golick and Nicholas Perry did just that on a recent fishing trip. Watch below as Jackson hauls a cast to a coho, strips, and then proceeds to hook and fight the coho as Nicholas helps assist with the rod flexing.
Jackson explains the situation as “We were fishing silvers and one of the rods we had broke right above the first ferrule. So instead of putting it away, we only fished with the broken rod for the rest of the evening. Caught a ton of fish on poppers-super fun!”
