Okay, I am kind of a collector. Actually, that would be an obsessive compulsive packrat!
I tend to go way overboard and buy rods and reels and such with reckless abandon and then several months down the road realize I don't need them all and sell some. Plus, realizing that the bills I neglected to buy it in the first place have now come seriously due has something to do with it also...
So, of all the rods you have, how many do you actually use on a regular basis? How many are just for kicks or just to have them?
I have been able to seriously widdle my stock down to three essentials.
I have a 9' 6wt for the bigger rivers, streamers, stillwater, and deep nymphing.
8.5' 5 wt for the medium sized rivers in general and all that I do on them.
7.5' 3 wt for the smaller stuff.
All the rest I accumulate is merely excess though I must admit that my OCD is starting to try and convince me that I really need a Sage TXL 00 weight. I don't think it is going to be too hard to convince me either. There are some teeny creeks around that would just go great with that rod..
