Re: Who carries more than one rod while fishing?
I know guides who do, but that's different ...
On a stream, I basically never see this around here. Most of our banks are wooded and brushy, and just getting around with one rod is hassle enough. Some people carry a spare spool (i.e. sink tip) but even that is unusual.
Seems like most people rig up with what's right for what they expect to be doing the most of, and just go with it. I know that's what I do.
It's a different story on a boat. Going after warmwater stuff with a surface rig and something to go deep with is fairly normal. I think the key difference is there's somewhere easy to put it.
