Ok, so humour me then - at least for the benefit of all those who didn't grow up riding/hiking/4-wheelin' all the region's backroads and trails.

Thanks for posting pics of your gear - you've inspired me to pack a rod in the future : )
I was surprised just how little space all my gear took up. I easily have room in my duffel for camping gear for myself, as well. That might be the next outing - an overnight fishing/camping/riding trip.

I'm surprised my 2 piece hasn't gotten clothes lined on branches yet!
I'm the other way around - more fresh water (and most of that lakes) than salt. I do have a 9wt rig as well for salmon & steelhead that's seen some use on the Bulkley, Skeena, and Lakelse... but its been sitting unused for a while.

And I know exactly what you mean about the clothesline thing. My first two-piece 6wt rod was a nightmare just to hike into a lake with, hence the nice compact 4-piece rod that I now favour.
