    1 wt Dancraft
    3 wt Orvis TLS
    3 wt Sage VPS light

    All the cane rods are from my Grandfather. Everything else I built except for the TLS. And I'm always looking for more; rodbuilding is too addictive.

    6 of 'em from 3-8 weight. A few Lamiglas cheapies of varying weights, an Eagle Claw that I've had for most of my life, a Fenwick 6wt (my favorite stick), and a Redington 3wt that has yet to get wet. All 9' 2-pc except the 7'6" Redington.

    Well..one less as of today...at least for awhile. I snapped the tip off my Thomas&Thomas Helix 5w today as I was packing up after fishing Amber Lake...and I just got it last year...totally sucks :(

    My collection is pretty basic...another 5w (Sage XP). A 3w (TFO) for backpacking, spring creeks, and other smaller water. And an 8w (TFO) for steelhead and the occasional saltwater excursion...

    had 10 rods last year, but down sized due to them not being used and couldn't justify keeping them. As of today, heres what I have:

    4wt 8'6" 4pc St Croix Avid
    5wt 9' 4pc St Croix Legend Elite
    8wt 10' 4pc G Loomis GLX (going to the grave with me)
    9wt 9' 4pc TFO Ticr X


    Future purchases...

    6 wt 9' 4pc TFO Ticr X
    7/8 wt 13'4" Kispiox G Loomis Spey Rod

    Pretty happy with what I have now, but seriously considering the 6wt TicrX for the salt...

    I won't list them all, but 13 or 14 'spey rods' and about a half dozen 'one-handers.'
