About the Duffman!

Steve Duff (aka Duffman) has been building rods for the last 30 years. Growing up and living in Newcastle (NSW) until his early thirties, his love of fishing for bream, flathead and estuary perch was entrenched at a young age. In his teens he was introduced to rod building by his grandfather and has been custom building rods since. Today Steve lives with his family on Victoria's Gippsland Lakes, and as a full time rod builder is truly a master of his craft.

Fish with the Duffman

Keen to fish for bream, bass or trout? Let Steve take you to some of his favourite locations from the Gippsland Lakes to the Alpine streams. You'll fish with the best equipment available, either out of a state of the art American Skeeter bass boat or personally guided up some of Victoria's best trout streams. Accommodation, meals and associated costs can all be included in your Kustom Fishing Tour.

Steve, thanks for providing me with the best rods on the market for my tournament fishing. They played a major part in my win at the ABT Lake Glenbawn Bass Pro, in a large field on a super tough bite. The sensitivity of the blank/recoils and minima reel seat allowed me to feel the slightest inquiries even in 90ft of water. Simply the best, thank you.

The Apex series is the latest generation from Duffrods. These rods are extremely sensitive and lightweight. With the carbon fibre handles you really get that ultimate feel and balance. I have used these on both Barramundi, Murray cod and they definitely handled the bigger size fish with ease. Check them out!
