One rule of thumb that I'm familiar with: when you add rods, buy them in intervals of two line weights.....for example 4-6-8, or 3-5-7. If you stick with fly fishing for a while, odds are good that you will end up with more than two fly rods. Maybe a lot more.

Well I decided to buy another 5wt lol. That was the main thing I wanted anyways, treat myself to a nicer 5wt rod and reel then the one I have now. I ordered a St. Croix Legend Elite from a fly shop here in town and it should be here by this weekend. Thanks for all your advice guys

I've somehow accumulated five fly rods. One I fish 95% of the time, one I keep for nostalgia reasons. The others I have no clue why I bought them in the first place. May be time to clean house.

The multiples are mostly because I bought a cheap rod first and then upgraded. I figure the cabelas rods are not worth much to anyone, otherwise I would clean house and sell some of them.
