    blimey Pete, 21. my missus went mental when she asked "how many rods have you got" . my reply " 4 my love". why do you need 4 she said. you can see how this argument went on.

          if your not hurting anybody, whats the problem?

          that is unless your keeping them all in the lounge, kitchen or bedroom

          in which case, good luck mate!

              Can't be far off that myself, but they are spread out through the house.

              Thing is, I might break a rod, so clearly I need a spare. And if I get really clumsy I might need a spare spare. Also, though I don't normally float fish, I do occasionally try it, so I clearly need a spare float rod or 3......

              Even got a couple of poles in the porch. That's the fishing gear variety, not someone called Stanislav......

              It's not the rods that take up the space.

              It's the seat boxes......

              Need a bigger house.

                If my Mrs asks how many I have I just say back "How many pairs of shoes do you have" and she shuts up
