I find that with under 10 rods I can cover all my fishing needs. Not to say that having 10-15 rods wouldnt be awseome.

8'- 4 weight Orvis superfine touch
8'6"- 5 weight Orvis access
9'6"- 5 weight Sage VXP
13'6"- 7 weight Sage Z-axis
11'- 8 weight Sage Z-axis

I find that the 9'6" 5 weight VXP is more like a typical 6 weight rod, it has major backbone and is a nymphing master, an amazing all-rounder. The orvis touch rod is a dry fly dream, the presentation is off the charts. And as for the z-axis 8110 I find it to be an incredible compact spey rod for scandi and skagit applications on small tribs and huge rivers alike.
