Default Re: Is there a Fly Rod that you wouldn't part with?

a question for all you, how often do you use these rods? i know when i have a snowboard that means something to me i ride it 1-2 times a season where my other 4 boards i ride 20-30 time each a season. im afraid ill break the one that means something to me and when i have a rod i know ill be afraid id break that too and never use it.

My answer would have to be none. I use all my rods at times. Even when I get a new rod in one class or the other I keep the old one. Still have all my rods including the hand me downs from Dad. Have 2 7wt, 4 6wt, 1 5wt, 1 3wt.

3. Sage TCX 9'0" 7 wt. (level lined, overlined for Bones on the windy flats or underlined for a sleepy Smallmouth fisherman, this is one nice stick)
4. Scott S4S 9'0" 9 wt. (a new rod for me, but it looks like love at first bite: this one shoots more line than you carry in the air on your backcast; great for quick, accurate deliveries of prarie dog-sized flies in coldwater salt fishing conditions)

That's it for me. The rest; outside of the sentimental keepers, could all go........if they really had to.....

Won't part with any of my Loomis rods, especially my old 9' 4wt IMX. All of them were wrapped and built by me 'cept for the 3 and 6wts I bought from IMXER.

1979 Orvis 7' 9" Far & Fine.

For years it was all I used and caught everything on it except kings. When I got a load of them I felt like Sheriff Brody when the shark came up behind the boat after the chum. I just used it yesterday and it's still the best I have
