Wheeling and Dealing for another Fly Rod

Do I need another fly rod? Yes I do after watching the video clip over at River Damsel this week. RD told me she is waiting for her new high sticker to arrive in the near future. I have tried a little high sticking last year with my 7 ½ ft. Temple Fork. I realize then that it would take a much longer rod to effectively achieve success with the sticking technique. So today I started searching for that 9 ft. or better to get that added reach. After searching the web for a while this morning I found this great new website called the Angler's Habitat. This company will actually let you trade in any fly rod you own to go towards your purchase of a new one---how cool is that? I talked to one of their reps and he told me that you could do what they call trading up, which means as you trade up and purchase you could one day end up with your ultimate fly rod. I have a long way to go before I reach that ultimate fly rod; but after finding the Habitat today I have established a good start.

After all, how many fishing rods does a fisherman need? One more.

Don't listen to anything I say about this subject I've got about 30+ fly rods and the same number of reels. I've got no control and no credibility.

30 fly rods and reels and I am working on my 5th. You just made me feel really good about this future purchase. Thanks Howard for making this easy for me.
