Was fishing the surf this evening, 2 hand overhead casting. Surf really picked up after some time. Decided to call it after getting good and soaked, rod, reel, me, everything. Walking back to the car I was breaking down my rod, I pulled apart the grip section and the middle section, and water came spewing out, a fair amount also. First thing, I'm wondering how the water got in there to begin with. Second, it doesn't seem like this could be a good thing in any way, how can I prevent it. I didn't have the sections apart when I was in the water. After a near drowning from chasing the top two sections down stream the other day, I check them regularly to see if they are lose.
