Diamondback Fly Rods is a brand with a rich history dating back to the company origin in Stowe, Vermont in 1983. The rods built by hand in the Stowe factory were distinct and beautiful, with a unique braided pattern often built into the surface appearance of the carbon rods. Although the Stowe rod factory is no longer in operation, Diamondback has moved the company headquarters and product development process back to Vermont in 2021. With a renewed focus on designing beautiful, high performance fly rods, Diamondback is excited to bring awareness of this historic brand to a new generation of anglers!
Creating great fly rods is an art form, and products like Backwater, Carbonite, Classic Trout, Diamondglass, and Golden Shadow (and many others) reflect the passionate efforts of those rod builders that came before us. Although the Morrisville, Vermont plant closed in 2007, we have not lost our Vermont roots. Unique new fly rod tapers are being developed and refined under the Diamondback brand in Vermont once again.
New Diamondback rods reflect developments under the direction of product design specialist Joe Goodspeed. Joe brings over a decade of manufacturing and design experience in the fly fishing industry to Diamondback—including managing fly line production for Cortland Line Company (2009-2014), fly rod development for Thomas & Thomas fly rods (2015-2021), and signature fly design for Fulling Mill (since 2018).
