What is Get Bent about?
GET BENT® is all about attitude and catching fish, any fish! It’s the exhilaration and fight between you and the fish as you GET BENT. If you've ever caught a fish, any fish, you know the feel and excitement the moment a fish hits your bait; that sudden pull or tug on the line. Once the fish has taken the bait and you've set-the-hook hand on for the ride! Since man was living in a cave he's had to hunt or fish for food to feed himself and his family, it was literally a matter of survival. In nature the strong survived. Today, in most cases we don't necessarily have to hunt or fish for survival, but the instinct is there and the will to sustain ourselves is ever-present as well. So by bending a few rods you're practicing one of man's oldest forms of self-preservation of survival.
