White River fly rods
Long story version...
So, the day after Turkey day i had to drive with my mother to Mesa, AZ from the Portland, OR metro area as she is spending the winter down in AZ and was too scared to drive it on her own for fear of snow on the passes.
Well, we made it and Sunday met my sister and family for lunch at the place my brother in law works, the new Bass Pro shops. He is one of the GMs of the restaurant. Man, what an awesome store. So, his employee discount is 40% on Bass Pro shops label items. I spent a fair amount of time in the White River Fly shop area of the store and picked up a Hobbs Creek 4wt rod/reel combo. I figured it would make a decent souvenir to take home from my unpleasant drive. I know it isnt a great set up but the rod seemed to have decent action and i thought it would be a good was to add to my collection.
So, anyone have any personal experience with these, good or bad?
Short story version:
They any good?
I probably posted this thread in the wrong forum since it is about a specific type of fly rod. Feel free to move it if need be mods.
