About Steve

Steve Duff (aka Duffman) has been building rods for the last 25 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.

Over the years Steve has had many a catch to write home about, but none more so than winning the ABT Bream Grand Final in 2006. And of course the key tools in achieving this accolade were his own designed and custom made Duffrods!
