5/6wt dual line S2 Steffen Bros Glass
5-week production time on this model*
The quintessential fly rod, a 5/6wt dual line S2 Steffen Bros Glass! Daily driver that is a must for any quiver. A riot with creek smallies, or monster trout. Light streamer/popper work, with the finesse to still land the perfect dry fly. Featuring progressive uni S2 glass on iconic fiberglass tapers, this rod is perfect for throwing dries, nymphs, terrestrials, hopper-dropper rigs and small-med streamers. Offered in 8'0" or 8'6" length to suite to your local stream needs. The 8'6" offers a bit more reach, and slightly more backbone for nymph rigs, while the 8'0" is helpful for bushier locales with a ever so slightly more progressive feel.
Proprietary uni-S2 fiberglass produced specifically for Steffen Bros. Mod-Progressive action, with tapers designed for unique power reserve. Our glass layup is naturally chestnut in color from our production process. This results in a super smooth action with lighter swing weight when compared to older fiberglass rods.
The heart of a Steffen Bros taper, is its unique layup and roll pattern. Each rod blank is hand-rolled on custom crafted forms. From light blue line stream use, to the Musky glass series, we are constantly experimenting with taper ratios to meet the needs of modern anglers! Elegant, yet fresh and exciting.
These rods have a very smooth and responsive action, excelling in any fishing condition I've come across for trout.
I went with an 8ft 6/7wt and it's one of the first rods I've used that casts either line weights equally well. From terrestrials on long leaders and 6wt lines to 240gr full sinking lines. The rod does it all
I've fished Steffen Brothers Fly Rods in a variety of situations across my home waters, and they epitomize American craftsmanship and beauty.
If I’m dry fly fishing I love to grab a 3/4wt glass rod, if I know I’ll be doing some nymph rigs I bring my 8’0” 4wt graphite Steffen, or if streamers are on the menu, I love to grab the gorgeous 9’0” 5wt graphite.
Steffen Brothers Fly Rods, IMHO, makes the finest glass rods available. They buy proprietary fiberglass cloth, of course, but then they roll their own blanks on their own in-house mandrels. They are as fine as glass rods made. I own three of them.
This Steffen is very light in hand, it's not a fast rod by any means if comparing to fast graphite rods but it isn't some heavy wet noodle at all either. It has the perfect casting range for anything you would ever want to use it for.
We're proud to keep every component of a Steffen Brothers Fly Rod made in the USA, just like it has been for the past 43 years. From the design process, to pencil sketching, hand-rolling blanks, and hand-winding threads --- every fly rod is crafted with love and artistry.
