Including a broken one that I fixed, and a combo fly-spin rod, I have nine: a 4, two 5s, 3 6s, a 7, an 8, and a 9.

Added another on the weekend, Redington Trout Spey. Now up to a nice even dozen, glad some are in the closet & out of site.

Unfortunately,
I find it difficult to find a rod I don't like. Even when they're poorly constructed or designed, I feel these waifs need a home. Sometimes a diamond is discovered, but they usually appear at my wife's annual "yard sale" the next spring and hopefully find a new home. Not very fiscally smart, but you should see what she manages to acquire at auctions and flea markets. There is no remorse because she suffers her own collecting guilt. I'll range from a low of 10 and a cut-off of 25.

You need a "30 or more" button if your really going to ID the nuts :p
Old thread, looked back a couple of pages to see if I had posted. Or confessed ? This must be what AA is like. Yea, 30 something. Carrying 5 now in car.
I defense of my nuts. Have 9 different (recognized) weights. Bamboo, glass, & graphite. Only 3 or 4 of each weight. Know people with more. Besides I don't care what people think. I know how obsessed I am. Lol...... if fish could read, I wouldn't be posting this.

I would like to see an average for the number of rods owned. Some people would bring the average up and then I wouldn't have feelings of inadequacy.

el jefe,

What have you used your F2 703 with the most? Dries or dry droppers?


Thanks!!

Jim
Hey, Jim.

I've only used it once, briefly, having just acquired it from a fine gentleman on this board. I used it for dries and dry/droppers, but small flies, in any case. That little rod is a BLAST!!! I can't wait to get it out on the small New Mexico streams when the weather warms.

I don't even have a reel for it yet, having just re-purposed the reel from my ZXL 386, but found that reel to be too big for that rod. Since the F2 is a downlocking seat, many reels will protrude past the end of the reel seat, which I don't like because it puts the reel on the ground when you lean the rod up against something when rigging, untangling, etc. What reel do you use on yours?
