Default Re: Just Curious: How Many Fly Rods Do you Own

Hello Fly Fishing Friends,

I have nine fly rods and I have always two rods for each weight. So I have two rods of 3wt, one two piece rod (M3 from RST, a German brand) and one travel rod (always Orvis Frequent flyers). This combination I have for 5wt, 6wt and 8 wt rods. My ninth rod is an old 7 piece 6wt travel rod, which I use for my motor bike trips.

I use this combination, because I could change the reels if necessary and so I ahve always a substitute, if I would have an accident with a rod. The other advantage is, that I can easily carry the 7 pcs. Frequent Flyers from Orvis in a small back pack or during my business trips in my suit cases.

But I am also thinking to buy a new 3wt rod (two pieces rod) which will be a little more sensitive than my current rod from RST.
