    Man, what a bad year leading into this years season. I forked out over $350 last year on new gear...all for nothing. I bought a Gander Mountain official steelhead rod, which easily broke when I pulled a snag. Second misshap, either lost or had my $250 Cabela's fly rod stolen at the end of last season. That kind of blow can really damage ones motivation to get back in the game, but I'm trying.

    I think in two weeks I will be making another fun trip to Wheeling to re-load. The desire to land fresh steel out weighs all!

    Why not head to Erie outfitters instead??
    It is more steelhead based then cabelas plus Craig will put you on some fish. :)
     
  4. Aren't the gander mountain rods guaranteed for 2 years, mine broke (guide series) took it back without a receipt and got a brand new one, no questions.
     
  5. Yea, Gander has 2 year warranties on their rods, but the only one that you can actually get from the store on a warranty is a Guide Series. All of the others you have to go through the manufactuer, which by the time it gets shipped back to you, the season might be over.
     
  6. I would try taking the rod back to Gander. I returned a rod there once without a receipt that was broken, and they exchanged it with no questions asked.

    hmm...Might have to look for it. The problem is, I had some other guys tell me I was sol, so I think I may have tossed it.

    Called Gander Mnt. All Guide Series rods are 100% Guar. So looks like I am still in buisness...also looks like I will be making my first trip of the 07'-08' season on Friday.
