White River Fly Store Fly Rod – Hobbs Creek Fly Reel Evaluation

I lately bought the White River Fly Store & Hobbs Creek fly fishing outfit from Bass Professional Outlets for $149 and a few delivery. I used to be on the fence about whether or not to buy it due to the value level. In the event you have been capable of spend $50 extra you might be sometimes capable of finding a top quality fly fishing outfit. Nevertheless, when you’ve got $50 much less, you find yourself within the value vary the place you could have the next likelihood to buy decrease high quality gear.

Rod Development

The rod building really stunned me. Like I mentioned earlier than, the value level made me take into consideration a mean rod and reel, one thing that might get me by way of a fishing season or two. The rod arrived with a terrific epoxy end, and properly wrapped snake guides. The stripping information is simply far sufficient away from the reel for straightforward stripping, which made it simple to get a really feel for the outfit.

Reel Development

The reel, whereas constructed from plastic outer components, has really stood up fairly properly to a couple 5+ lb Florida largemouth. The drag holds up, and has a facet dial to tune it to the identical lb check as your chief.


The road that got here with the outfit did require a little bit of use earlier than it was utterly pliable, however as soon as it had been damaged in, it carried out extremely properly. The rod building mated with the included fly line made it forged clean, offering simply sufficient flex on the rod tip to warn you when you should proceed your forged.
