If posting in this thread made you think you have too many rods, send me a PM.
I'm shopping for a 3 or 4 wt.

I Have recently sold a few rods that i did not like. I am on the lookout on Ebay for a 7' 4WT Wisnton IM6. Other than that i may pick up a BIIMX winston on closeout for bass fishing. i also have a bunch of stuff my father sent me in case i decided to start saltwater fishing and some freshwater rods that are for friends if they ever decided to start fishing.

I used to own two, one 5wt Sage and one older 8wt for streamers etc. But lately with different conditions to fish and smaller streams to larger rivers my collection id expanding but only to 4 right now, I just bought a sweet little Redington 3wt and a 10' 4wt UHM that I am currently setting up. Plans for a 10' 8wt, and a 2wt and oh yeah I forgot I bought an 11' 6wt switch that I am planning on setting up for the spring. So there ya go my rod collection is growing and I have blocked it out. Perhaps some of us will need a Caddy on the water? "Yes James hand me that 9' 5wt with the dry line would you?"
