I fish bass tournaments and the wife asked me why I need 20+ rods with me. Then she fished a couples tournament with me and watched me switch rods over and over, each with a different lure tied on, until I found the magic setup. Then it clicked. All the time I would have wasted tying on or possibly not have bothered tying on and didn't catch the fish if I didn't have a locker full of rods.
Now she emails me deals on tackle when she find them.
Hell, while I was away fishing a BASS open she organized all my totes and boxes by lure, size and color.
Love my DW and fishing partner.
Currently I throw 4-6 rods in sleeves in the storage over our dinette. Reels are put in a Pelican case.
