  1. Default Who carries more than one rod while fishing?

    I was just wondering I've never really seen anybody do that. I like a heavier rod for nymphing and a light rod for dries but I don't want to go all the way back to the truck if a hatch starts or stops. Anybody else do this?

    My buddy, my son, and I do most of the time.

    When warm water fishing, I've taken a 4 and a 6 weight so that I can switch depending on whether or not the bass or gills are hitting. I leave one or the other on the bank while wading so that I don't have to walk all the way back to the car.

    Do you just set your other rod on the back until you move on?

    I know guides who do, but that's different ...

    On a stream, I basically never see this around here. Most of our banks are wooded and brushy, and just getting around with one rod is hassle enough. Some people carry a spare spool (i.e. sink tip) but even that is unusual.
    Seems like most people rig up with what's right for what they expect to be doing the most of, and just go with it. I know that's what I do.

    It's a different story on a boat. Going after warmwater stuff with a surface rig and something to go deep with is fairly normal. I think the key difference is there's somewhere easy to put it.

    I sometimes carry an extra in my pack in the rod tube if I think I might fish for trout and salmon

    Extra stays in the Jeep, just in case something bad happens since I usually drive an hour or more to fish.

    Yeah I was just curious I've never carried 2 rods but I've regretted not doing it before. I'm just trying to gauge a big of a pita it might be

    I use a river boat for transportation and always have about 4 rods with me. That would be 2 single hand & 2 Spey rods. When I leave the boat I take only one rod and make it work for whatever I need.

    Default Re: Who carries more than one rod while fishing?

    I always take at least 2 rods to my destination but carry one when I'm hiking the stream and fishing. This allows me to change rods if I'm wanting to fish something else or another rod is better suited for the condition. If I'm fishing with my bud, we generally try to rig both rods differently and will pass them back and forth if fishing together. One dry, one nymph or streamer and sometimes same type of fly but something distinctly different.
