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.

Depends on the stream and species:

Trout:
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
