Fly-fishing is a sport that centers around more than just catching fish. There is a feel to it, and a sort of nostalgia that follows it around. Much of the gear is significant to the overall enjoyment of the sport as well as the number of fish you might catch on any given day.

Bass Pro Shops is conscious of what fly-fishing is about and all of what goes into making it special. That's why when they set out to design a piece of equipment meant for such a special purpose, they put forth a real effort to make gear the best it can possibly be -- even at the reasonable price the Hobbs Creek Large Arbor Fly Reel is sold.

The Hobbs Creek Large Arbor Fly Reel is an instance of just how well Bass Pro Shops mixes quality with affordability. This reel is all about value, top-to-bottom. Inside it's got a disc drag to handle any fish you might land. The newest design of fly reels has focused on large arbor. The large arbor holds the line more evenly and also increases the speed of retrieve when you reel. The Hobbs Creek reel is built around the convenient large-arbor design. To add to its ease of use there's a quick release spool and left/right-hand conversion.

You'd think that this kind of affordability in a reel lends to cheap construction -- that's absolutely not the case. The rugged aluminum body and spool are the real thing and sport the hearty strength and construction of a much more expensive outfit.

If you're in the market for a new fly reel this year, or you just want another one for a backup, don't overlook the Hobbs Creek. You get a lot of reel for your money, and a very fish-worthy reel at a great price.
