Rated 5 out of 5 by steffyC Great little fly rod!
I have several more expensive brand specific fly rods. I bought a Hobbs Creek 7ft-4wt for those little places and small streams.
I was quite pleased with the responsiveness, the ease, accurate casting, and the backbone of this fly rod.
Taking a 16" Rainbow was exhilarating on this little gem.
PS; I am actually looking at another purchase right now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AvidFishermanInTexas Solid Backup
I own other high quality rods (Winston and Hardy) and consider both those manufacturers products respectable and very reliable, however there's absolutely nothing wrong with the Hobbs Creek rod. I fish the 6 wt. very often and think it performs just fine. Loads and shoots line as expected, handles fish without problem, and is considerably durable. Obviously it's not the same "quality" or as aesthetically pleasing as a $700 rod, but I have no qualms about loading it up in the car next to my more expensive rods. In fact, sometimes I'll run the line through the Hobbs Creek and leave the other rods in the car.
As a side note for the less experienced fly fishermen out there, I myself would NOT purchase this rod as a SALTWATER rod, as it will more than likely (definitely) not live up to your expectations. It's got some parts on the reel seat that are "saltwater unfriendly."
Good luck, tight lines, and I hope you find one that suits your needs!

Rated 5 out of 5 great purchase
I purchased this rod for a recent trip to the Madison River. I hadn't fly fished since I was a young boy who took interest in an old bamboo rod found in my fathers garage. Unfortunately, I don't have anything to compair this rod with, I purchased it for quality and price, the reviews really help me choose this rod. I was able to put together a nice entry level fly fishing package for an affordable price. The Hobbs Creek fly rod performed excellent and most importantly caught fish. I left this rod with my son in Montana and the next day he sent me a picture of a beautiful brown that he caught that morning using this rod. I plan on purchasing 2 more to outfit my wife and myself again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MMVENTO great for narrow creeks
In my neck of the woods the creeks and streams are narrow and tight. This 7'6" rod was perfect to help an amateur like my self from getting snagged in the over hanging vegetation. Pretty awesome product. With in 30 minutes snagged me bout 3 panfish in early Jan. So much easier to cast than my clunky 9' hand me down form grandpa
