Fiberglass Fly Rods
Our fiberglass builds are a blend of new technology with the look of a bygone era. With all the great blank makers out there, finding a blank should be a pleasure. If you are looking for a fiberglass rod with a traditional appearance, you have come to the right place. Classic looking fiberglass rods are a passion with Renaissance Rods. As with the fiberglass rods of yesteryear our rods have "the look", open spiral wraps with classic twist thread or traditional colors. If you can dream it, we can make that dream a reality.
Renaissance Rods is proud to have teamed up with Epic Fast Glass blanks, out of New Zealand, and become a "Certified" builder for their rods. These have to be some of the finest Fiberglass blanks in the industry. Accurate, strong and very sweet casting. It's a blend of old school character with new school technology. In other words: This ain't your Grandpa's old Fiberglass rod. Besides being a great casting rod, they do what many manufacturers don't do.... they offer several different colors of their blanks. That and new colors and models are being developed all the time.

Steffen Brothers glass in full flex
Steffen Brothers fiberglass in action on the Kings River in California. This is an example of a rod that will cast itself if you allow it to do all the work . I would be more than happy to build you such a sweet casting rod.
