Re: Your favorite....
I have a 8'6" 5wt Bamboo rod, original maker was Phillipson and it was refinished by Leonard. I love that rod. I match it with a Hardy System 6 reel. I fish it the most out of my small collection. My next rod would be my Horizon 9' 5wt by Thomas and Thomas. I just came across a Hardy Sovereign 8'6" 5/6wt. I have a feeling it is going to sneak in to the #2 spot. I have a Hardy Princess reel I try to use as often as possible. Hands down one of the best reels ever made. I love my gear!
