Herabuna broke my rod

Well not quite, but yesterday’s fish left their mark on my fishing rod.  The bamboo was split and the lacquer broken off one side of the first joint of the rod.  This is not terminal, and can be corrected easily by binding with silk thread and then re-lacquering.  I bought the rod rather cheaply, secondhand, although it is an excellent fisher it is old and has seen plenty of use; I must get to work and finish making my own hera rod before this one conks out!
