For sale here we have a rod rod from the highly regarded Steffen Bros. 8' 3-4wt 3 pc. fiberglass fly rod. Serial no. A041214. The rod is in excellent condition having been fished, showing wear to the grip at the bottom (small chip in the cork) and also in the reel seat, which shows minor marks. Steffen Bros. rods are often touted as some of the best casting rods being made today; bamboo, glass, or otherwise.
The rod features an unsanded glass blank in the reddish-rust color characteristic of Steffen Bros. Bright guides, ceramic stripping guide. Burgundy wraps that match well yet contrast the blank for a subdued look. There is a band of marked thread at the 12" and 16" mark to help curb the the tales of 20" fish. The rod information is written in white on the butt. U-shaped hook-keeper. Western-style grip with moderate soiling and the small chip mentioned above. A very fine nickel-silver down-locking reel seat with handsome knurling and a fine wood spacer. Spigot ferrules that transfer motion and energy more efficiently for a smoother cast. The fit is perfect. White witness marks. The action lives up to its reputation - a very smooth medium-fast dry-fly. The 8' 3-4wt from Steffen Bros. is often considered one of the best rods in their line-up. This rod is well suited for just about any average trout stream and is a personal favorite, excelling at roll casting and tippet protection. The rod weighs 2.80 oz. Comes with original bag and aluminum tube with Steffen Bros. label. Skip the wait and grab this modern classic for a deal!
