My go to rod was a 50s vintage bamboo rod that I rebuilt. I broke last fall. Still haven't gotten around to fixing it. Before that, it was another bamboo rod. That one started live in 1934 ad an 8 or 8.5 foot H-I. Can't remember exact length. I completely rebuilt it as well and 4 or 5 weight line worked well on it. Broke that one a few years ago and haven't fixed it yet, either. Thanks for reminding me.

How about I state my all purpose plastic rod. St. Croix Imperial, 8 ft, 5/6 weight. Now watch me break that one, too. Also have a few lighter (and more expensive) rods which I haven't used yet. Need to get reels for them.

The all-purpose utility rod is my Fenwick FF75 with a Medalst 1494AK. If I'm goin' on a family trip or something and have to be aware of how much gear I take, that's the rod and reel. I know I can get by on most waters with it.

Don't hit me with them negative waves so early in the morning. Think the bridge will be there and it will be there. It's a mother, beautiful bridge, and it's gonna be there. Ok?

Depends on the stream and species:

9'3" 5wt spring creek w/ battenkill mid arbor lll
9'6" 8wt rivermaster or presentation w/ same reel
7'6 4wt brook trout w/ battenkill 3/4 disc
My fav new toy is a 6' 6 wt Fenwick 1pc custom w/ 5/6 battenkill disc drag or fullflex midge 7' 5wt w/ the same reel.

For smallies:
8'6 lamiglas 6/7wt with battenkill mid arbor lll

It's hard to pick one but my favorite all time rod is the spring creek
