Get More Diversity with Diamond² Fly Rods
Since 1994, the name Diamond Fly has been synonymous with Snowbee and has built a loyal following among fly fishers. Our top-selling Diamond² range incorporates the very latest thinking in fly rod design and material technology.Using our tried and true “Tri-modulus carbon” technology these blanks are fast and light and retain a crisp, middle-to-tip action. Using the finest quality materials available we spared nothing in producing the best looking, best fishing 4-piece fly rods we could achieve at this price. This range has been designed for river and still water fishing, but we also offer longer, lower line weight models, for river fishers who favor the lighter Eastern European and Czech nymph styles of fishing.
Finished in a lustrous deep olive color, with self-color whippings, subtle gold graphics and brushed aluminum reel seats, with olive green burl wood insert complementing the color of the blanks. Combine all of these and you have a rod with timeless appeal.

I have several Snowbee Diamond 2 rods, which I am using with guests on my boat here in our Central Oregon Lakes. The Denny Richards signature 6 wt rod is great for handling those brute rainbows in Crane Prairie Reservoir. It has the backbone to punch casts through the wind, and a softer tip for absorbing that brutal initial run. The 5 weight Diamond 2 is a very good dry fly rod. I have been using them on East Lake to fish the prolific Callibaetis hatch on this lake. The rod enables delicate presentations to fussy fish in shallow water. Yet is handles some of the nice backwater rainbows in the 18-20” range with ease. I highly recommend the Diamond 2 Rods.
This rod has been amazing! I use this rod for nearly all trout fishing and haven landed fish from 5"-25" and it has never left me wanting. Plenty of flex and responsiveness in the tip and ample backbone where you need it. Construction is A+ and the styling is great as well. A previous review mentions they felt the rod was heavy but if feels comparable to high end rods to me. Customer service is top notch as well; I ended up breaking my tip section with a fishing trip coming up and Snowbee got me taken care of in time to make my trip!
Rod is amazing and shipping was quick
The rod is a little on the heavy side, but it’s got some back bone . In Pa we have keystone select rainbows and they can get some good size and the diamond 2 landed three to net with some serious bend in the rod . Once I found the right leader length it rolled the tungsten bead heads perfect . The only reason it didn’t get 5 stars is I would have liked aligning dots on the sections .
I bought the 10'3wt and LOVE the responsiveness! I use it for euro nymphing all across NY and PA, and use this rod for everything shy of Great Lakes steelhead! (That's when I use my Spectre 10'6wt). Great rod, great tube, and KILLER warranty! I love my kit, and pair it with the Onyx!
