Designed around our own easy casting IM-6 blank, these rods feature a components package normally found on much higher priced rods. Walnut reel seat inserts, aluminum alloy fittings, oversized stainless steel snake guides, and a high grade cork grip are standard. Rods measuring 8' and over are equipped with dual stripping guides. 4 through 6 weight rods feature a Western-style reversed half wells grip. 7 and 8 weight models have a full wells grip, and come with a detachable fighting butt. Rod sock is included.

good for anyone i am an experienced fly fisherman and i fish for bass and tie my own flies. my dad wanted to get into fly fishing to so i bought him this rod in an 8wt 9'. i was very impressed with it. it looks good fishes good, and it has a moderate action that is good for beginners. i even use it sometimes. i fish with a white river classic. yes i could buy a more expensive rod but i couldnt buy a better one September 11, 2008
Hobbs Creek Fly Rod I have been fishing with the 7' 4wt for two months now, and am very happy with it. The action is medium slow which fits my relaxed casting style quite well. If you are the kind of person who likes to feel the rod loading this is the rod for you. The rod is very light in the hand and I can cast all day without tiring. Several of my friends have tried it and plan on getting one for themselves. The only fault I can find in it is it makes want to buy another one in a heavier weight for bass fishing. November 27, 2006
Fun Little Flyrod! I've been using the 4 pc 4wt that measures 7 ' 6 ". I simply love this little flyrod...it's light, responsive, attractive, and has durable hardware. I've had this rod for 2 yrs, and it has performed well for me. I have a more expensive flyrod, but this little Hobbs Creek is the one I'd rather fish with! I'm currently using the Hobbs Creek (HCR-1) reel along with my rod, and enjoying every moment with it. This rod casts nicely in the wind. Short or long casts. Slow or faster casts. You can cast this rod all day and not wear out your casting arm. If you are thinking about adding a nice little 4 wt, and you have a limited budget, consider the Hobbs Creek in the 7' 6" model. It's a nice rod, whether you are a beginner or a seasoned angler. I'm glad I own one! September 13, 2006
Hobbs Creek Fly rod I bought a 7' 4W Hobbs Creek fly rod and combined it with a Hobbs Creek HC1R large arbor reel. The system balances nicely and casts very smoothly with the Hobbs Creek WF 4 F fly line. Overall I am very happy with this setup, the only complaint might be that I wish the fly line came in another color besides orange. I am not new to fly fishing but have picked it up after a long layoff. Early on I had the fortune of using a lot of fine equipment early on. I do not miss a thing with this system. August 3, 2006

The conventional answer that I've gotten from fly shop salesmen is that you can go up or down one weight. I've never tried it, though. My advice is to try it, if you already have the 5wt line and 6wt rod.

I own the 8 wt rod and I'm wondering what action it is. It feels like medium-fast to me. However, I'm not sure. Feels like mostly the top third is bending.

A: 
I have been flyfishing for 30+ years, and I always like to recommend an 8 or 8.5 ft 6 wt rod as an "all-around" fly rod, especially for beginners. The Hobbs Creek 6 wt rods are great--get the 8.5 ft 4-piece 6wt if you want to keep it in your car or take on plane trips with you. I use my 6wt for everything from 6" brookies to 5+ pound salmon and bass. If I need a more delicate presentation (like for small trout) I use a double-taper line, and if I need to cast larger streamers or small bass bugs I use a weight-forward "bass taper" line (in fact, the 8.5 ft 4pc 6wt Hobbs Creek can readily handle a 7wt line, which allows you to cast bigger flies or deal with windy conditions). It's a lot cheaper and easier to have a spare spool with a different line than it is to have a separate rod. Just my $.02 . . .

My preference would be a 6wt. It'll enable you to throw small flies and still have enough backbone for the big browns.

A: 
I would recommend a 5wt rod. it is a good weight for the smaller fish. however, if you are aiming more toward the larger native trouts you will want to go up a size or two to a 7wt rod. The 7wt will help in the casting of a heavier fly and laying out more line. I also recommend the heavier rod and line if you begin to get into saltwater. Salt water fish can be more aggressive.

A: 
Yes, the five-weight would be a good choice for you. Another thing to consider is whether you plan on throwing larger flies and streamers, such as wolly buggers and bead head patterns. If so, you may want to think about the six or seven weight rods. Fish size should be taken into consideration when selecting rod size, but don’t forget to take fly/streamer size and weight into account as well.

A: 
Without actually seeing the condition of the rod and the severity of the break, this is a tough question. However, if there is non porous material at the mend area, it is possible to glue the pieces together.
Glue will not work if the only material you have to work with is cork or other porous material. There is a glue that I have used for many years to repair almost anything, machinery, toys, athletic equipment, etc. I stronly recommend J.B. Weld. Because of the type of product being mended, use the four minute variety. Let me know what you decide and how it works for you.

A: 
Yes, Bass Pro Shops brand rods are warranted for 1 year from the date of purchase against defects in materials, workmanship, and against breakage under normal fishing conditions, to the original purchaser. This warranty is void if the rod is in an abused or misused condition and does not cover "normal wear and tear."
