    I've got a Bob Meiser 7/8 cannon. I've had 50 fish days in Alaska on Coho and never it let me down. You need nothing else what ever your size is!

    I am certifiably an anti-gear whore guy but in this case would definately recommend a 7.5' 3 wt. Get a nice little click pawl reel for it too.

    Who would possibly argue against that?

    You don't need another rod, you need many rods. Why deny yourself? To paraphrase a 17th century poet: the grave's a sad and lonely place and none I think do there go fishing

    The equation expressing the correct number of rods for any fly fisherman to own is: x +1. "x" always equals the current number of rods owned. Math doesn't lie.

    P.S. I'm pretty sure that works with bicycles too.

    Isn't this like asking an alcoholic if you should buy another round?
    Clearly the answer is yes.

    If you want to get another rod then get another rod. If you don't, don't.

    Rods are like boats. You only need one more than you currently have.
