    One 15' 10/11 wt.
    And I am building a 17' 11wt. (so I can hit Canada with a fly.)

    Jackster, you need to get at least one more. Not superstitious or anything but the count.......
    (Notice I didn't say get rid of one? )

    I've sold 3 rods in the last 6 months I wasn't using. What I have left:

    Bamboo:
    7' 2/2 quad 4wt
    7' 2/2 4/5wt
    7'6" 2/2 quad 4wt
    7'9" 3/2 quad 5wt
    8'0 3/2 5wt
    8'3" 3/2 quad 3/4wt

    Graphite:

    8' 0wt Sage SPL
    8'8" 2wt Scott G
    8' 3wt T&T LPS
    8'3" 3wt Sage SPL
    8'6" 3wt Winston BIIx
    8'6" 4wt Winston BIIx
    9' 5wt Winston Ibis
    9' 5wt Sage SLT
    9' 5wt Scott S4
    9' 6wt Winston LTX
    9' 6wt ST Croix LU
    8'8" 8wt Scott S3s
    9' 9wt ScottS3s

    At 61 yrs old it is now time to continue thinning the rods out to those I use most. Problem is I have specific applications I like to fish with each rod.

    I have at least 1 reel for each rod with a particular line I like to use for the type of fishing I'm going to do that day. Time to thin those out too.

    LOL Chi,

    Buyer got a great deal on that XP. I just don't fish heavy streamers much anymore so the 790 never saw any action. Too bad we couldn't find a trade that worked but from looking at your list, I don't think either of us are "rod poor". If I started smallmouth fishing, I think I would look for a nice fast action 6wt but I would need to trade another rod I have or sell one as I need to reduce my rods rather than increase at my age.

    I still can't believe nobody snapped up that 3wt you were selling.

    I feel I have a slight affliction... I'm only 19 years old and have over 10 rods! I started when I was only 9 so that may give me a little excuse but not much...

    8'6 #4 Winston BIIX
    7'6 #4 CT Robertson Custom Cane
    9' #5 Winston BIIMX
    9'6 #5 Winston BIIIX
    11'6 #5 Sage Z-axis
    9' #6 Sage TCR
    9' #8 Loomis GLX Cross current
    9' #10 Winston BIIMX
