ParrotHead,
The Hobbs Creek Combo from Bass Pro is pretty good. It is what I use from time to time. It was my first fly rod. I have the 7'6" 4wt. Here it is White River Fly Shop Hobbs Creek Large Arbor Disc Drag Outfits -Rod & Reels It cast well, breaks down pretty easily, and is a pretty good all around rod. Mine is a medium-fast action. Now having said that, I also have a TFO Pro 9' 5wt with a Hardy Brothers LRH Reel that I'm starting to use. I like the TFO rod. This is the first rod out of the 5 that I have used, mine and several friends, that I have been able to cast over 60 feet with. The rod is fast action, and it seems like I just barely have to move it to cast. I'm very pleased with this rod. Cabelas has a combo of my rod and their reel for around $200 if you are interested Cabela's -- Temple Fork Outfitters Lefty Kreh Professional Series/Cabela's Prestige Plus Fly Combo
I hope all this helps and you find something you like.
Aaron
