Diamondback Salmon/Steelhead Fly Rods
Double-handed rods that are a joy to cast hour after hour.

Names like Restigouche, Miramichi, Tweed and Skeena are all synonymous with salmon and steelhead fishing.  Big water, big fish, long rods.  At Diamondback, we are proud to continue our long tradition of building handmade fly rods with an all-new series of double handed salmon and steelhead rods.  New for 2004, Diamondback's new Salmon/Steelhead double handed rod series has been developed for maximum casting distance, superior line control and effortless tight loops even in the most difficult conditions.  With their unique ability to cover larger water and for their ease of casting, these double handers are a joy to cast hour after hour.  Available in three piece sizes of 12 1/2' for a 7/8 weight, 13' for an 8/9 weight, 14' for a 9/10 weight, and 15' for a 10 weight.  Diamondback's Salmon/Steelhead rods are European action -- lightweight, mid tip action.
