Back country waters.

Great setup! Backpacked in to a few alpine lakes the weekend I got the rod. Was able to catch fish within 10 minutes! The rod and accessories are light and great for backpacking. I thought the length would be an issue however it was easy to manage around trees and shrubs.

The Hane rod is an exceptionally well built rod for a wide range of fish sizes. I have caught 3" creek chubb, 8" bluegill, and 16" largemouth bass (6 lbs). The rod is strong, sensitive, and responsive. Quality is top notch. It feels great in the hand, and it is a beautiful rod to look at.
