Fly Line Tamer

I should preface the following with the fact that I have had 2 seasons of great success with this device but wanted to warn others of the potential for system failure.

I was motoring on Sunday from one spot to another in my 20' Jones with my Sage Xi2 12wt and Abel super 11 in the fly line tamer. The line was laying in the bottome with the fly attached to the reel like I have always done. We were doing about 25-30 mph over a 2-3ft chop and bouncing around a bit. Long story short when we came to a stop over a few mile run the rod was gone. Not sure what transpired but my guess is the line somehow came loose, exited the guides and hit the water dragging the rod with it. Make sure you take the time to secure it carefully and keep an eye out.
