sorry to hear about your rod.
Were you being a little over-zealous with the rod? you can tell me.
I can't really say that I get stuck on bottom very much but if I ever to I'd be inclined to lose the rod, grab the line and 'straight line' pull against the stuck fly (possibly from a couple of angles) this will either release the fly or snap the leader.
If the fly does release then I'd check the gape and point.
Should have went to 'the outcasts' event!
Take it easy
