I had a similar experience as a kid on G-ville
years ago. I was fishing with an older fella and there was a big stormcloud miles downriver from us and I was using a graphite rod for the first time(borrowing it). I kept getting a mild shock
when it would lightning. I finally dropped the rod in the boat one time as I got zapped. That was the last time I used his rod that day!

Apparently graphite rods are a good conductor. :)
