4wt Orvis Hydros
5wt Redington CPX
5wt Fenwick HMX
5wt Greys GRXI+
6wt Fenwick FF806 glass
6wt Orvis Clearwater
6wt Greys GRXI+
6wt Fenwick World Class
7wt TFO BVK
7wt Cabelas LSi
8wt St. Croix Triumph
8wt TFO TiCR X
8wt Orvis Access

I guess that makes 14 if I haven't forgotten any.

Some of the names have changed but the tally is the same. My brother in law owns 12, so I refuse to have more than 11 or else he will accuse me of accumulating gear. Based on the list below, I apparently need professional help with my 3WT hoarding

Sage TXL-F 1WT
Sage TXL 3WT
Sage ZXL 3WT
Sage Circa 3WT
Sage ONE 3WT
Sage TXL 4WT
Allen ICON 4WT
Sage Z-Axis 4WT
Orvis Hydros 6WT
Flying Pig 7WT
Dad's Fenwick 6WT

I have about 15 fly rods! I sold a few on another fishing site, when I was having a bad day? My fave rod of all times was a 1wt Superfine with a 3100 reel ..... I sold it for a song? I don't know why?

This year I want to buy a bamboo rod, maybe a 4wt or 5wt, but a light one ..... not a crappy heavy thing?

And I want to get a "glass" rod. And a UL, maybe a 000 or a 00 Sage?

Last year I really wanted to build a couple fly rods, but I never got around to it.

Like many have already said on this site "it's a addiction"

Currently I have nine. Just sold two and bought one. Technically I've got 10, if you include the first fly rod I ever had but it's retired on the wall now and not in use.
