I am definitely not in the league with you guys, but I am happy anyway just to fish. Maybe I will find a good setup at Walmart so I can catch some I just got old setups for now, but hope to save up for some new ones.

There are ways around the money issues.
Learn to build plugs, build rods, repair reels. Remember - Value Add !

I do all three, build plugs, build and repair rods and tinker with reels. 90% of my gear I got by trading one of this for two of those, then fixing the extra one up and trading it with a plug or two tossed in for something else.........................
The key to it is to be very aware of the going rates for decent used gear. If you know what you're looking at there are always deals to be found. There's also always the risk of getting robbed blind if you don't know what you're looking at.

I'm married - with kids! No way I could afford to pay cash for all that stuff I have.

IM on the same page 100% I have 2 kids,house,truck,car,camper, bills,misc bills, kids sports ect........And there's alot more belive me!
There is always a way around finding money,I redeem copper for cash,I'll get it from work,odds & ends,I stock pile it and cash it in when I feel the time is right.
I also put $$ away when I can, 10 bucks here 20 there, it takes time but I seem to make it count for the things that want.

It dosen't matter what you have for gear,it's how you enjoy what you have.

2 Otter sit in kayaks set up for fishing for the kids and I'm looking to buy a sit on top setup for myself before spring.

Also a couple of boat and freshwater rod n reel setups and I'm sure some other stuff I'm forgetting.
This past year saw some things go and some new ones join the lineup. I'm getting more and more into the fly fishing thing and that was this years emphasis.

Got (getting) rid of the 11' Honey Lami, just don't use it enough, trading it for a 9/10wt RS2 Reddington fly reel.

The Redington is probably going on a Lami ET 108 10wt. The Lami was a good deal. I sent in a pair of broken Lami's that I've been meaning to get around to sending back for years - told them I was getting more into fly fishing and if they wanted to they could send me a fly blank rather then exact replacements for the two broken rods (fair deal since they don't even make one of the rods anymore) - they sent their brand new top of the line blank - Gotta love Lami service (I just have to build it by June)

Sold the Sage, used the money to buy (nearly steal) a 9wt LLBean (Loomis made) Orion rod, definitely an upgrade.

Traded some plugs for a Batson/Forcast 10' 3wt blank with guides and seat that I'm extending from the butt 18" to create an ultralight two handed overhead system. It's an experiment, if it doesn't work I'll change out the stripper guide to a 20 ring and make it an awesome Delaware river smallie spin setup

Found a 7' 6" Fenwick GFL 90-6f blank I didn't even know I had. Picked it up with a handful of other blanks a few years ago stuck it in a corner and forgot it. Could be fun for stalking the flats in Sept.

Sold the Reddington spey rod without ever using it, just a few casts over grass. When I bought it I didn't know there was a difference between spey casting and overhead casting - spey was not want I was looking for. Used the money to buy an Aussie Talon 9 wt two handed overhead in a charity auction. Did a good thing in the fight against cancer and upgraded my gear in one move

Picked up a TFO TICR 7w blank because I'm like a moth to a flame for a good deal. I've no idea when I'll get around to building this one.

Picked up an LLBean Double LL 8wt on closeout for the same reason I picked up the TFO, to good a deal to say no to. Got buyers remorse before I even took it out of the case and traded it that night for a Ross Cimmaron C-1 fly reel w/ extra spool for the new 3wt rod.

Won an Ebay auction for a Gremlin 2 wt rod and line. Basically an AmTak
Matrix Fly Rod with AmTak Halide guides - be fun in the Delaware for those 1 to 2 lb smallies that infest the areas we hang out at.

Got a Royal Coachman reel regularly $50 at Sports Authority for the huge price of $5 - I love it when you walk in with perfect timing on a closeouts Great reel for the 2 wt.

Scored an English made Cortland RimFly reel with a 7 weight Cortland 444 line for $10, again on ebay. No idea what I'm going to do with the reel but I can definitely use the line.

Built a 12ft AnyFish AnyWhere Universal Beach Rod. Knocked a foot off the butt and built it dual purpose. Its main use will be jigging the rivers and throwing huge plugs.

Sold my XS 101 MS. I still think it's a great rod but my AnyFish AnyWhere 11' Estuary and My Fisher 8720 put it back into 3rd position backup.

Got an used Ocean Kayak Drifter 12' yak for Xmas . Now I have one and both my boys have their own (the Otters) - just have to finish putting together the kayak trailer and we're good to go.
I'm toying with the idea of selling the Drifter before I even use it (anyone want a lightly used drifter with paddle and rod holder for $425??) The new Triton has been calling me, I can hear it in my sleep all the way from the Cabellas in Pa.

Added another Mitchel 498 PUM, and a set of Newelized Jigmasters - 500s (with a candy apple red aluminum spool), 500hs and a narrow spool model, to the reel arsenal but other then that I've been quiet on the spinning and conventional fronts.

Got some serious rod and trailer building to do over the next few weeks
