I tried, I really
tried, but I can't do it.
Heck, I need three four weights.
My problem is MI has too much variety, in-between Salmon-Steelhead, SM Bass, Musky, and Trout, I just can't narrow it down. Even for trout, I need a small stream dry fly rod 7'6" Boo, Holy Waters rod Hardy Zenith 8 1/2 4 weight, Trophy waters and Drake rod Zenith 9-5 weight and a Hex-Streamer rod 9-6 Proaxis. And that's just Trout!
And that doesn't include the 10-5 Marksman Drifter for AK rainbows, and the the 10-4 Greys Streamflex for southern tailwater nymph fishing.
If I add Carp and SM I take the 9-6 Proaxis, but throw in the 9-8 Proaxis for the big guys.
For Musky its a 9-10 weight Greys Predator.
And for Steelies its a 11 1/2 7 Hardy Swift, for Salmon and BW steelies its the 13-8 Swift.
I'm hopeless, And I still need the 6'6" 3 Hardy Perfection.glass for calm day small stream dry flies. And I've had my eye on a Keystone (Dickerson 6611) for the same conditions.
It's Hopeless. I can't hardly go anywhere with three measly rods.
