How many rods do you bring with you when fishing? Why? I use one and just constantly change lures.

    I usually take 3 (2 spinning 1 casting) or 4 (2 of each). If I plan to try for cats I'll bring a 5th.

        I usualy take at least two incase something happens to one of them, or if I might be fishing for several spieces. Why risk ruining a fishing trip by only taking one rod if you have more rods at home. One time I went fishing with my uncle, he had an ultra light and was messing aroung with pan fish as soon as we got there. On his third cast a big largemouth took his bait ran with it unspooled his line and snaped it, he was done for the day.

              Depends, but at least two. For saltwater there are often 6 or 8 rods along with us. For fresh usually 3.

                    I usually take 3 or 4. The reason? Because I don't have 5 or 6. Good thing I don't. My buddy and I fish out of a small boat. I prefer to keep each one rigged with different things so I can quickly throw a second option to a missed fish. You might be surprised at how many times that works.

                        Freshwater I usually bring four or five just to have them and saltwater I could bring up to ten or twelve rods, you never know which rod is going to be the lucky one of the day.

                          I have been successful with just one. The trick is snap-swivels. That way you can change lures/hooks without having to cut line. Small profile ones usually work best, if there too big a fish can see 'em but a small one will only add to action.

                            It depends on what I am fishing from. If I am fishing form a boat (rowboat supplied by a rented cottage) I bring just 1. But if I am fishing from a pier I bring 3-4 and set them up in different locations with different baits. My brother or freind (whoever is with me) and myself with check on each one. I usually but a worm or some live bait, cast out, and let it sit, on 1 or 2. The others we hold or use crankbaits with. We put bells on some of them to notify us when there is one on the hook.

                                2. I always take a fly rod and either a spinning or casting rod.
