"Hello, my name is Tyke & I'm a hoarder.......
Hello Tyke, welcome to rod hoarders anonymous......"
That's my confession out of the way, I have sold a few rods in the past, but only a few, so I'm currently at 2 dozen double handed Spey rods of 12 - 16 feet plus another 4 purpose built switch rods of 10'8" - 11'6" & 7 long single handers with built in extensions of 10'6" - 11'4".
Anything of 10 feet & less (& I have quite a few) I just classify as a straight single handed rod, irrespective of whether it has an extended handle or not.
I think the second hand price of many rods is so low that I'd rather hang onto them as spares, loan rods to pals, & for the memories.
Yeah, I'm single, I can get away with a house over flowing with fishing tackle.
Edit: in my defence that is after over 30 years at this game & some of the rods left go back almost to the start of my addiction. T.
