Does anyone have pictures of a Steffen Brothers rod?
I would like to see the finish on a rod that was built by them.

Thanks

To clarify, are you wanting a photo of a rod built on a Steffen blank, or a rod specifically built by Steffen?

The rod in the photo was built by the Steffens Bros. I bought it new and asked for the slide band reel seat. They were reluctant but complied. It is an 8’ for a number 4 line.

Thanks for the photo.
It shows me what I was wanting to see.
I wanted to see what the finish on the blank looked like.
I have an 8' 4/5 on there work schedule.

Thanks again

I started to put up a picture of my Steffen 8' 4/5 rod, but I had just ordered a pizza for my grandson and had to go pick it up, then forgot about it until now. Glad Duff had his handy. I think you will like your Steffen when it arrives. Steffens are rather highly thought of around here.

"They were reluctant but complied."

Wow, not sure who "they" are but I wanted a specific reel seat, cap and ring with cork, and I spoke with Mark and he was more than willing to use it. I ordered the one I wanted and had it shipped directly to him. That was a while back and maybe things have changed.

Here are some photos of my Steffen 3/4 in poor lighting. You can tell by the cork that this is my favorite rod for small/medium size streams. This is Mark’s standard Lemke reel seat. You won’t be disappointed with his build quality.

Riffling Hitch, “they” are just Mark. I bought my Steffen years ago and I guess Mark didn’t feel a slide band was appropriate for an 8’ rod back then. It was simply an opinion, nothing more.

Gotta say Duff , reluctant or not , that slide band seat looks like an absolute perfect compliment on that rod , in color , style and every other asthetic ... Beautiful combo ...

actually its Mark and his brother Tim. Mark rolls, Tim builds out. mark says he is ready to fish full time but i think tim will still work for a few years.

.

Adding a photo of a recently acquired Steffen 8ft 3/4wt three piece. This showed up on the used rack at the local fly shop recently though it doesn't look like it saw much if any use. I like the thread wraps for checking fish length at twelve and sixteen inches. A nice touch. The rod also came with the factory sock and tube. I have owned a variety of fiberglass fly rods over the years but this is my first Steffen glass fly rod. Looking forward to getting some fish with it.
