Landing fish from a kayak

Read an interesting article from American Angler the other day about breaking rods. Thought it was fitting after breaking a rod while trying to net a red during Redfishfest. I high sticked (or is it high stuck) him and the rod snapped as soon as I moved my rod past vertical. The funny thing was that after watching the video from the day I was doing all the right things at first, then the fish made another run, and I moved the rod position to the front of my body to gain extra leverage. It was a bad idea and the rod broke. I made a little video about it below. Be sure check out the article from American Angler. A broken rod is usually your fault, as was the case for me.
