I voted 5 or more, and thats how many I have (1 of them spey)

I'm ok with having just one more,,, a 7'6" 4 wt for the smaller waters. After that, I will be complete, I think, maybe, we'll see!

I would really like more, but if I can't catch fish with what I have now, I should spend more time on my fishing skills, rather than money on rods.

5 wt 8'6"Sage Fli
5 wt TFO Pro 9'
6 wt 9' Sage Fli (yep, I like these rods)
8 wt 9'6" Orvis Trident TLS (older rod, but great for the rare bass or even Pike fishing)
8/9wt 14' St Croix Legend Ultra Spey

And an old bamboo rod that I would not fish with, too brittle, but pretty,,, So it doesn't count in the numbers...

All but the TFO bought on closeout or Ebay, so the wife goes easy on me. She loves to get a deal herself, and is proud of me when I do!

I see that more guys own ten or more than own just one. See what fly fishing will do to your bank account you guys that own one?

Cheers,
Jim
