I "NEEDED" another rod!

Well, It hit me again... same thing each year... that feeling of deprivation, depression, saddness... so what to do, what to do? I went out and bought another Fly rod, that's what. a Sage RPLXi 10 wt... I "needed" it I told myself....

That's most likely the same "NEED" I have for a Tibor reel!
Hummm, what to do, what to do?

Thumbs up

When things around me are difficult the only thing that keeps me sane is that I know I can go fishing. John you did need that rod. FishHawk

Two things you can never have enough of in life:

1. Golf Clubs
2. Fly Rods

What's the length of the rod, Stri? 9 footer? I've been thinking about a big 2-hander to boom out the long surf casts. Would like to learn how to build one but don't have the time these days...

Dave, it's a 9 footer... and I like my 8 wt RPLXi.... the action will fit well between my T &T horizon 10 wt and Scott eclips 10 wt.

John, my gear-mentor and sage of sound advice, one to whom I look up to and admire.....

If one rod is added, does another need to find a new home?

Feel free to let me know.

Humbly yours,

Roop

What about something to hold line on the rod? You can't be putting a "used" reel on a brand new gem like that!!

My head is spinning..... yes.... yes....Nick.... That would make complete logical sense... I mean why change reels to rods.... why not have each rod matched with a reel.... I mean ..what am I stupid or something! Obviously I NEED a reel to go with the rod.... I should have thought of that my self....Thanks Nick for shaking some sense into me....

Now the next problem is what is going to work best...
You've got to match your Floorvis Flats Shirt, the Bluderline, and the RPLXi in some style. I'm assuming there will be no problem getting the Invisible Waders to go along as well!

John, you'll also need a fishing partner for that first trip out using the new toy......just someone to confirm how well it fishes. And if this witness gets some fishing in too, then so much the better.

Needs

I would have to say that new 10wy needs a Van Stall to keep it company.
