Your chances of something like this happening are a lot less than getting hit by lightening.
- Or less than being damaged by road debris again. Hmmm.

- In a properly soldered wire connection the wires are no longer flexible. If they do get flexed, they don't bend, they break.

I dunno... how heavy was the fishing line? You've gotta give the fisherman a lot of credit... at least he was thinking big. How big of an Airstream can you land on 20lb test line?

Your wire will no longer flex and will break at the ends of the solder connections. usually inside the insulation. My recomendation is based on what the FAA allows for aircraft wiring repair. use a butt connector. Much smoother and should pull apart before the wires break. If you want to seal them use marine butt connectors. They can be bought with heat shrink on each end to seal the connection.
