    Re: should he pay for it?

    Crackup thread.
    Ok so now you're a few days down so its not a spontaneous response. If you're going to be annoyed over it then its just as important to dare I say it, get closure and leave it behind.
    Either drop it and make it a jig rod or tell him you're buying a new one and will he go halves.

    It will mean that once he has paid he'll consider that the end of the matter and so should you. Sure is better than having sour grapes over it.

    At the same time we have to realize that our non fishing non boating friends will not have the skill to help launch, retrieve, put bungs in or load rods, so you have to take that into consideration when you invite them around and ensure they don't get a chance to do any damage to themselves or your gear.

    Re: should he pay for it?

    how pissed did you get him and how old was the rod. Mates will always do the right thing. as the old saying goes peolpe come and go but mates are for ever. I would hate to hear that a mateship ended over a piece of broken rod. sometimes it feels much better to rib them over the next how ever many years about the time he broke your rod.

    if it is a really good quality rod, take it to a good takle store
    or rod builder, they may be able to put a new tip on relatively
    cheaply.
    I have had a couple of rods re tipped over the years, from memory
    under $20
    also have a couple of cheaper rods that I have left shortened and
    fitted roller tips, stil make good boat rods.

    If you have allready chucked it bad luck,
    if your mate replaces it, accept it graciously, just like grandmas xmas
    pressies.

    But dont press the point

    He's a non fisher you say.

    How good a mate could he possibly be then?

    Let it go and laugh about it, then forget about it. Always load your rods yourself. A good mate is priceless.

    It will test out how much of a mate he is.
    my opinion is that he should regardless whether he offers or not

    Re: should he pay for it?

    i ruined a mates cast net and TOLD them i was going to pay for it. If i was your mate, I'd be out to the tackle shop the next day because a piece of fishing gear aint worth having hard feelings over.

    Re: should he pay for it?



    How about you split the difference, and allow him to pay something toward a new one, that way he will feel a lot better about the accident.

    You will then be able to get a replacement without too much pain.
