Kennedy Fisher,  and others.  All rods listed here can be shipped to U.S.A addresses.  We do not have an online purchase option.  If interested in purchase please call or email the shop to confirm availability.

Diamondback Fly Rods

Stroud Tackle was a dealer for the original Vermont based Diamondback fly rod company for many years, as well as a Cortland Pro shop.  When Cortland acquired Diamondback, Stroud Tackle continued to stock and sell  Diamondback fly rods that were made overseas.


Note that these rods are not covered under warranty by the current iteration of the Diamondback  company based out of Minnesota. 

Diamondback Flawless Series

The Diamondback Flawless series rods were produced after Cortland acquired the Diamondback Fly Rod Company.   These rods have a fast action but don't need to be uplined for close quarters work (that's our opinion).  These rods were made in China, not Vermont.   They were popular sellers for us while they were in production. Each rod come with a cordura covered rod/reel case.  They originally sold for $250.
