Love this Fly Rod
I bought this Fly Rod and Reel combo about a month ago based on the recommendation of the guy's in your fly shop. I was a little worried that I bought something that would not last very long but I think I will have this rod and reel for quite a long time. I have been very happy with this rod and reel. I'm new to fly fishing and have been practicing casting for a few weeks in the front yard. Today I caught my first trout with the pole in a small local stream and the pole performed perfectly. I would highly recommend this for the fly fisherman just getting started or on a budget - works perfectly!

worst product ever made!!
this is the worst rod ive ever used. ive used $30 rods better than this you might as well get a long stick and tie line to it with no hook and it just as good and that is an understatement. the best thing about this rod is the case that comes with it and thats it. the case is worth more than the rod.
BASS PRO IM DISAPPOINTED IN YOU YOUR PRODUCTS SHOULD BE BETTER QUALITY

Great Fly Rod and Reel
Great fly rod and reel. I used it last week while fishing in my float tube. Caught one nice rainbow. This fish weighed about 3lbs. The rod and reel handled real nice. The only problem I had was ordering it. It came with a tippet and all you had to do was tie your fly and fish. I used the rod and reel two times all day. Not really much of a test but it worked like a rod and reel should.

Excellent Product--Right Out of th Box
I have been fishing for many years, but I am new to fly fishing. I recently completed a fly fishing course. Then, I bought this Hobbs Creek combo, with case, a couple of weeks ago to get started fly fishing. I have caught dozens of fish already. I started catching fish the first time I used this combo. This combo has proven great for trout and panfish in Missouri. The length (8'6") and weight (5wt.) are great if you want to catch a variety of fish in different types of conditions. It is no problem for somone new to fly fishing to use this combo right out of the box. You just tie on a fly and go fishing with it. Plus, a nice, durable, protective case is included. The price is very reasonable for a combo of this quality. I think this is such a great product to use to start out in fly fishing, I wanted to make sure to share this information. I look forward getting years of enjoyable fishing experiences out of this combo.

I've never setup a reel before and was surprised to have received this combo unassembled. How much backing should I apply to the reel before I tie on the fly line? i've searched forums and the best answer has been to 'wing it'. That's not good enough for me. Should I use the entire spool of backing that came in the combo?
Most fly fishers fill the spool of the reel with as much backing as possible to allow them to retrieve faster and to reduce line memory. Thereby the line is less likely to tangle. Read the reel capacity chart to determine the amount of backing needed for the reel.
I went ahead and spooled the entire amount of the backing provided, tied it to and then spooled the fly line - it was the appropriate amount of both. This might depend upon the weight of the line you order, but I could be incorrect. I ordered mine with 5 weight
