Right now I probably have around ten rods in the house but I have been in the process of thinning the herd. I really only use or need three of them so I am ebaying a good portion.

I also have been thinning reels. I am down to two that I use so I have also been ebaying some of those. Trying to get realistic about this fly fishing thing.

And I only have one set of golf clubs.

3wt- 7' St. Croix Imperial circa '95. Bought second hand from a preacher, landed 10lb carp recently.

4wt- 9' Sage VPS Light. Working on 2000 fish landed on that one.

6wt- 10' Scott Alpha. Love/hate relationship. Love it when amount of line out stays between 30-50 feet and/or need to manage line.

8wt- 7'6" Loomis GL2 built from spin blank. Too stiff, might need a 10 wt shooting head. Really.

9wt- 8'8" Scott HeliPly. Boomer, Hoss, Crowbar, Cannon, haven't decided what it's next name will be.

Curtis,
I am in Island Park 3-4 days and here 3-4 days for the next 4 weeks or so. I have a little more time up there to wet a line then here. You ready to try Idaho? Backseat available for you and your gear. The Henry's is calling, or is it the Madison? I am ready to test the foot. Extra bedroom available and soon a new kitchen. Won't cost you a thing! Leaving this Thursday about 11 am.
:fishing:

Well I got a new one to day for the dry fly. I fished it about an hour before dark. It is a little slower than my other rods but has a feel of its own. I landed several small browns and one 14" and it put a nice bow in it:
winston Lt 5 in a 3 wt. 7ft 9 in. Other rods include:
winston 4wt BIIx
winston 6wt BIIx
winston 8wt BIIx
I know there are other nice rods but really haven't found it necessary to look further. I also used galvin OB reels. just so you know, don't tell my wife. mike

Mike that 7'9" 3wt Lt is a jewel. That's probably the only Winston I would pay for. Balanced well and has that "perfect for trout casts" action. I don't really have a beef with Winston, its just that I'm one of those weirdos that would rather have a Scott G than a WT. Want a Scott e2 as well, but (insert favorite "wish" based saying here, i.e. "you can wish in one hand and crap in the other...")

Three.5wt - 8.5" graphite6wt - 9.0' boron (old)6wt -9.0' glass (old)The 6wts were my dad's along with two or three automatic reels. How people used those things is beyond me.I used to have my grand dad's 8.5' bamboo rod, but I loaned it to a buddy. It now rests on the bottom of Lake Popalopan (sp?) in downstate New York along with a brand new reel, line, backing and a round box with about 50 dry files. The friendship didn't last.
