Holy Cow Patrick, thats quite an arsenal,

I am going to assume you will fit in real well here with the rest of the fine hoarders or fly rods that frequent this place.

Yes, that's a lot of tubes, which have an extraordinary talent for sliding around.
Very unwieldy. Hard to fish something out the closet sometimes.

I went through a small rod phase. The L'il Streamer was the apotheosis. It's a remarkable rod. The secret is oversize guides, and a lot of them. Once you get used to waving something the size of a tomato stake around, you can toss quite a long cast. The relatively heavy line allows for use of bigger flies. I bought it for creeping around small streams, but I have used it in big water, such as the Housatonic in Conn. and the Esopus in N.Y., with good results.

My cousin's husband bought one and he uses it for largemouth in a lake, while sitting on one of those hybrid board-kayak things.

It does draw some quizzical looks from other anglers.

Maybe im an odd one in the sport as ill only really have 3 rods.

Currently I have 2
St.croix imperial 5wt
St.croix imperial 8wt

Next year im getting a st.croix imperial 3wt to complete the collection. I really dont see a need outside those 3 rods but I also slimmed down my spinning rod collection from 14 to only 2.
