Have you ever been in the river, or out on the flats, and those clouds roll in... then the hair on your arms stands up... then your rod starts to hum? That's a pretty good sign that you might want to drop the rod. This is what it looks like when a fly rod gets zapped.
Fortunately, my good buddy Whit Hunter, who found himself in a storm in Pennsylvania, was not hanging onto the cork end when Mother Nature lit this one up.
Anyone else had any en-lightening experiences to share?
