Varivas Split Rings, DUEL GT Plier, & Trip to Kil's Jigging World

Made another Pilgrimage to see Kil at his shop in Englewood Cliffs.

Picked up some necessary goods. Also, while we were chatting found out that there was a fishing report of a 185lb bluefin tuna caught off the waters of Cape, May with a hammered diamond jig!!! Bring it!!! I want the 200! This Saturdays trip couldn't be any better timing!

Broken Hopper Rod - July 13, 2009

Broken Rod:

How? Well, I was fighting a tuna around 19lbs of drag and the rod just snapped. The snap happened after the third guide. This is the 500gram Conventional Hopper Custom Rod by Capt. Harry's of Miami, Florida.
