The 5 I polled did not include 3 bamboo rods in various state of repair or disrepair. Two of the rod I would like to have appraised by a professional rod appraiser. Main reason is I would not want to ruin their value by refinishing. Anyone know of a good reputable appraiser?

Rods I own also includes the ones the old man fishes, cause we trade off, and lets face it, when he is gone they are mine and visa versa. Around 50 also.

I am kinda embarrassed to say but I have a plethera (cool word,uncool spelling) of rod's.I sometimes feel like a drug addict that has to hide his stash so other's wont know just how hooked he is.
I have about 23 or so,although only 4or5 see the light of day during the run of a season.I do make a effort to break out a couple of the "lookers" every season just to remind myself why I bought them in the first place.I have a couple that I dont dare fish either because of fear of damaging them or because of total impractalcality such as my 0 weight's 1's and 2's,and my 9 and 10 weight's,as I have no use for such rod's any longer.
I am the first to admit I am a horder when it comes to rod's,some call me a collector but i'n my mind a collector has a valuable collection with a few rare or very valuable rod's sprinkled in,my pile of stick's is graced by only med to high range rod's.Like I said I am a horder.

Ten rods ranging from 3 weight to 8 weight in different lengths from different
manufacturers. If my wife was to read this, honey I'm just kidding! I just have one! :grin: :grin:

Let's see... I guess it's seven altogether. I'd almost forgotten about some of these, it's been so long...

Hardy Smuggler 8' 6-wt (my first fly rod, about 1973)
Fisher 9' 5/6-wt GT40 blanks (2), home-built in 1987 [One of these Fisher rods has done over 90% of all my trout fishing to date!]

More recently, by now having more money than brains...

Sage XP 9'6" 5-wt
Scott E2 10' 7-wt
Lamiglas G1000 9' 9-wt (2-piece cheapie)
St. Croix legend Ultra 9' 4-wt (new today!)

Well, I guess that's all the rods I'll ever really need. Oh wait...

Interesting thread. I just replied to the poll with an "over 10" response. I use all my rods, including my Phillipson and the two Wes Jordan (old Orvis) bamboos.

Gentlemen, I must confess. I have five bamboo and twelve graphite rods. Rods are like a set of golf clubs , you need one for each problem you get into on the river. Tell that to the spouse and see how far you get. :thumbsup:
