Yeah right for the Boy Scouts...so that is your pick up line eh, Todd?

currently I have 5.

6'6" 3/4wt Eagleclaw Featherlite glass for the van.
9' 4wt Zenith
9' 8wt Zenith
10'4" 6wt Beulah platinum Switch rod
11'7" 5wt Beulah platinum Spey rod

I am pursuing and sampling some 3wt and 5wt glass rods right now. So, I might add one Glass rod into the list.

Just like my weight, the more I attempt to cut back, the more I gain

Two years ago, on the first page of this thread, I said 24
There's at least 10 more than that now

A lot more than I should. Any statement beyond that, I refuse to answer.

I recently took a friend, G.G., fishing up a little creek. The 905 I got for her b-day a couple of years ago is ridiculously huge there, we shared my 8'3wt.

If I want to fish next time, I need another 3wt. Oh, well kinda wanted to upgrade anyway!

Congrats, Nevessl !!! It's the beginning of a magnificent obsession.
I have enough rods ( and guns ) that I have forgotten what some of them are. But that does not stop me from adding something to the herd now and then.
I have favorites, that I use most of the time, like they say, variety is the spice of life

Thanks! I have done "fly fishing" in the past... kind of... accidentally caught a couple of trout... literally accidentally. lol Long story...

I'm really excited to get officially started doing this. I've wanted to since my friend and I got into his dad's fly tying materials when we were 13... I still have those flies and have also caught fish on them!! They were certainly not patterns of any type except from my imagination. Haha!
