3 fly rods. Strip the loose line right on top of the two not being used in my WS Commander. I might switch between 3 fly patterns all day and its nice to not have to constantly tie knots and eat up tippet. Freshwater, it might be something bigger and on the surface, something that sinks, and something small for things like blue gill. Saltwater, it could be a shrimp pattern, a baitfish type, and something weightless.

Used to do one fly rod and two baitcasting rigs. That would be the fly of the day, a topwater, and a tail on a jig or a suspending plug. Ive done as many as four rods, but 4 seems to multiply issues getting tangled with each other. Ive done one or two rods. Two is alright, but sometimes I wish I had the third. One, something could happen to that one, usually when the big fish is in sight, and while I mess with the one, the fish swims away.

varies depending on what i am doing. for serious fishing outings i usually average 3 - with each rigged for a different type/style of fishing. That said I love going down with just 1 reliable rod and fishing as well on some trips - I don't mind the fishing downtime to re-rig since i'm just enjoying being out on the water anyway.

Sometimes when i'm taking friends with me I'll go out with as many as 7 rods - but that is because I'm fishing for myself as well as having spares for them to swap to.

One spinning rod n reel and a spare. I understand the dilemma of choosing what to take and what to leave behind. I have a collection of rods n reels that usually don't make the final cut. I keep saying that someday I'm gonna switch it up and go back to bass lures and bait casters, but I enjoy finess fishing with jigs on light tackle. When I'm bank fishing I only carry one rod n reel.

Up to 7 if bass fishing. Typically 3 or 4 for saltwater and 4 or 5 for bass fishing for fun.

I took seven on Sunday
1 Frog
2 big swimbait
3 t rig
4 underspin
5 senko
6 jig
7 weightless fluke


Ended up catching them all on the frog and the fluke, but did throw all seven set ups until I had the pattern dialed in.
