Like Nick I have a room designated for fishing gear, but it has a tendency to overflow throughout the house. I am horrible about putting things up where they belong and doing routine maintenance. I always leave rods strung up and ready to roll, most of my friend don't. They show up on the river with rod tubes and take 20+ min fussing with gear, while I am already fishing immediately. I am looking around right now and I have a rod rack in living room, tackle room, and 2 spring Chinook rods still sitting by the back door.
