                                   Steffen Brothers Glass Fly Rods

Lucky for me, and all of you fly fishers out there, I now have access to all of the currently made glass rod blanks that carry the Steffen Brothers name. These blanks are true to the original design details that became well known in the fly fishing world starting back in 1980 when Mark & Tim Steffen began designing and building their fly rods.  Still the original chestnut brown blank color in the S2 glass material with spigot ferrules that build up into a great casting fly rod. A smooth progressive action.


I currently have four of these rods on the bench with one 8045 and one 8056 to be complete by July 20th. All rods I have are 8'0" 3pc in 3/4;  4/5;  & 5/6 line weights. Aluminum tube and bags included

Thr rod shown was a custom build.  To view more images of his rod, click on the picture above.

already had several original Steffen rods in his arsenal.

But he didn't have this line weight!

"Everyone needs an escape. For me, my escape is fly fishing. During some of the most trying times of my adult life I have used a fly rod as a coping mechanism.

The river is a place where I can immerse myself in God’s creation and forget about everything but mending."
