I finally got around to taking a pic of my rods for this thread...some don't see much river time but I don't have the heart to part with them as I like knowing they are in my quiver "just in case." I do alot of research in picking out rods which is another reason i don't usually part with them. Each rod seems to have a special story to go along with it. I think its a well rounded assortment, but I'm always left looking for more! Contrary to popular opinion, I clean my cork after once a year and the fish gods haven't seemed to care...yet.
