Default White river high liner

Has anyone fished or read anything about the bass pro white river high-liner rods? I am looking for an economical 10' 4 wt, but no reviews exist of this rod. I just spent several minutes on the phone with bass pro shops driving the customer service rep crazy asking her for customer reviews. They have none. Any help would be appreciated.

I would...if your not local...call LRO.

I think they will give you a much better option...with better warranty.


Hope this helps.

Do you need a 10' length rod? I know I appreciate the extra length of my 9'0" 4#; so perhaps the extra length is what you are looking for.

I like supporting LRO but the cheapest 4# 10' rod they carry is the Orvis Access. It is a fine rod, but not economical IMO.

However if you could get by with a 9' rod, the TFO Professional 9' 4 Weight is an excellent rod for the same price as the BPS.

I have only fished one BPS rod. In college I had a 7' 6" 4 piece 5 weight. I replaced it as soon as I could afford to. The high liner could be an entirely different animal though.

drodgers- I have never cast the high liner but my first fly rod was bass pro's white river dogwood canyon rod. I didn't have a lot to spend on a rod so the $55 dollar price tag sold me on it. I fished with it for a year and a half or so before upgrading but for the money it was a fine rod and I would still fish with on occasion now if one of the eyelets wasn't missing. I would say for $150 that this rod isn't a bad choice if your wanting something longer than 9'. I don't know if this helps but I hope so.


I'll second that about calling little river though, they may be able to turn you on to something better. Good luck

drodgers,
I haven't gotten to cast any of the Bass Pro rods. If you are looking for a great 10' 4wt rod without breaking the bank, TFO's BVK comes in a 10' this year. I haven't cast the 4wt yet but the 5wt version is really nice. We don't keep the 10 footers in stock but can get them fast if you were interested.

Daniel
