If you haven't already disposed of the pole, it might be worth closer inspection. One of my poles was one piece and seemed sealed up entirely at the feet, but turned out not to be the case. It used to get water in it and I couldn't figure out how until I held it under water at each foot and noticed bubbles. Over a period of hours, it would have filled up through the slow leak at the seal. If it's a ferruled multi-piece pole, then the likelihood is even greater at each ferrule seal.

Just trying to be optimistic for you, even if it's small ticket compared to the big losses . . . ;-)
