How many fishing rods do you have?

Recommended Posts

I just thought it would be interesting to see some responses to this question. I have 5.  :-[

My buddy has 31.

I have 5 rods that I take with me, I have 3 or 4 others that I rarely use.

I think more important then the number, is the quality. I'd rather have 5 good rods, then 20 ugly sticks  ;D (Not saying your buddy has them, just making a general statement)

I have 10 that I currently use and another 20 that have been retired over the years.

7 baitcasters

3 spinning

5 fly

I used to have alot more, but have given away, donated, and sold several. Like Brokejw, I figured out I preferred quality over quantity.

I've been through so many I couldn't possibly count how many I've ever owned. But currently I have 5 I use all the time, 3 spinners and 2 baitcasters.....and one of the spinners is an Ugly Stik Lite Pro ;D. Then there's one more that doesn't have a reel currenly, and one more spinning combo that I never use. When I have a rod that stands around too long unused I tend to give it away or sell it in a yardsale. Mostly give them away though. To friends and family so they can go fishing with me.

I've got 16 reels and only 12 rods.

You need 8 reels more.  :)

I need two more reels, only problem is I can 't decide which ones I "need".  :-/

A little OT, but I'm serious when I said I was going to buy some of the new '09 Citica E series reels...I like the look, stats, and price.  Casting should be identical to the Curado, due to it having the same spool and spool support bearings.  The Citica has the same 5 bearing setup as my Cores, and they are smooth enough.  I'll probably buy 6 when they are released.  It's going to be nice not having to worry about scratching them  ;):)

Counting fly rods and Musky rods, over 30 I'm sure.

At one time I had 22 hanging in the shed, and reels for each, grant it most of these were my surf rods in which those were custom made. They were made in the early 80's all the way up to the 90's. My fresh water gear too was custom and I still have and fish with those...the others consisted of a couple St Croix UL's, and BPS's.

All the reels were Penns, Garcia Ambassadour's,Shimano's a Lews Childre BB-25SS, I loved that reel till it got stolen out of truck... and a couple older Daiwa's thrown in the mix.

I have 10- 5 Good Baitcasters, and 5 Pleuger Presidents on basically the same rod, but different weight lines, etc....

More than that for me would be hard to justify in the budget.

The actual number is unimportant... but the answer is "one less than I need!"  Ever notice how even when you have enough, you can always think of one more you need?

I USE six setups...two spinning and four baitcasters. I tried to match up each set-up with an application. (cranking, jigs, finesse, spinners, etc.) I have a few more that sit on the wall. But the Bait Monkey could grab me at any time to say, buy a reel. And then the reel needs a rod, and...well you see how it goes!!!! ;D

Wow.  Sounds like pencil pushing is a good business to be in.

I have 6 rods.  My boat is not big enough to cary more than that.

Let's see, I have 6 bass setups, 4 catfish setups, 1 trout setup, 4 crappie setups, 1 striper setup, so if my math is correct that's 16. Man I would like to know how much coin that is. On second thought, I don't really want to think about it.
