I was going to stop giving you shit, but now you're egging me on. Go ahead and buy 5 Spey rods, but please make one of them one of the ones I have sitting around unused. I happen to know a thing or two about having more gear than is necessary or even sensible.Also,if @Salmo_g keeps giving me shit about asking questions about equipment I am going to buy 5 spey rods, and have , "Salmo can suck it" engraved above the cork on every one of them.
And how does the rod tube and sock go missing without the Winston rod going too? That may have been your lucky break.
