Diamondback Fly Rods
Diamondback fly rods are becoming very well known in the fly fishing industry.
These rods are hand crafted in the mountains of Vermont. I casted one of the
9 weight Diamondflys and found it to be very powerful and smooth.
Do yourself a favor and check out these fly rods. They are not as well known
as some of the other brands but for the price and craftsmanship, I think it
would be worth your while to check out Diamondback fly rods. Check out some
of the rods below from my partner site and decide for yourself. You can also read
reviews on these rods.
