Default Re: Odd or even number rods?

I think it all starts with your first fly rod. Mine was a 6wt. The next few were evens, a 2, 4 and 8, only because that made sense - expanding the arsenal wider early, in reasonable increments.

So, initially, I was an even.

Then after a few were in the quiver and my fishing matured (that makes me giggle hysterically to even suggest), I began filling in the holes with odds, and fishing with them more, mostly because they were new and purchased with a better idea of what I needed (length, speed, etc.).

So, I became an odd.

Next, I went back and supplemented my evens using my new-found knowledge. Acquired a variety within each weight.

So, ultimately, I became poor.

I think that many here will have followed that same progression.

Mike
