    The real deal for small streams and tiny flies.

    The Redington 3-Piece Butter Stick Fly Rod evokes days of yore when American muscle cars reigned supreme, it was safe to hitch-hike (relatively speaking), and fly fishing was still a semi-secret cult. Three slim pieces of fiberglass have a beautiful buttery hue and when acting as one, bend with polished elegance. This little piece of heaven is what you'll want in your hands when you're heading out for a mellow float n' fish on a low-flow, languid river.
    Fiberglass is a classic rod material when the waters are small and the flies are smaller. The action is slow but not sloppy, letting you feel the rod unload, which is something that's sensual for seasoned anglers and essential for beginners. Should a fish bite, the Butter brings you closer to the action, sharing the sensations of head shakes and runs almost as though you were the fish.
    The low-weight rod options give you the ability to finesse small casts and sweet rolls with a hopper or dry fly. Long-time anglers could probably put a leech or bugger on the 5wt and hit the bulls-eyes with little difficulty. High-grade cork makes the grip great, whether you choose the half well or cigar shaped handle. Three pieces makes the Butter beautiful to transport, and alignment dots leave little room for error. Small streams, tiny flies, and the pure pleasure of being outside on the water is when you'll want the Butter.

    Slick 2wt

      I picked up the 6’2” 2wt. to have as a truck rod I keep it fully rigged with a Redington zero reel and rio lt lite line in a tube in the work cap of my truck. This rod is sweet buttery goodness! The action is as slow as expected from fiberglass which I find a pleasure to cast. The distances that it will fish will depend on casting ability, but it truly is a 20-35 foot rod. It surely is not made for wind! I have put a few larger lake run bows in the 17-18” range on it and it was a hell of a fight, but this is not it’s purpose as it is my 4-10” native brookie rod. If your on the fence about one, just do it! They are great little rods


        The presentation of dry flies with this rod is awesome. It's fun to fish smaller creeks and rivers with. The 3 wt 7 ft is perfect for those sunny summer evenings, throwing hoppers to hungry fish. I'm excited to be able to bring it backpacking this summer, should be fun to fish in some of those high Uinta Lakes.

        The Famous Little Guy

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        No question that I've found out why this is such a favorite for smaller streams. I picked up the 6'6" for times when my 8 or 9' isn't necessary for the small waters and tight spots. It's a fantastic value, the color is dead-on (buttery or butterscotch, you pick, either way don't doubt the photos--it's sweet looking) classic sort of a retro style with durable smooth cork handle and love the sliding ring reel seat that mine came with, great flex when pulling in the smaller guys but can handle the occasional bigger catch. My friend, an experienced fly fisherman here in Utah, gave it a try and said this allows him "to get into fishing holes that are hard to get into, surrounded by trees and bushes....I can cast it with precision accuracy." It's true, I've seen it.
        My go-to small stream rod for life.

        100% fun with no saturated fat!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I own both the 6'2" 2wt and the 7' 3wt. These rods are so fun to fish. The presentations of dry flies will amaze you. The water barely moves, and then... WHAM! TROUT ON! The 2wt is perfect for small water and native fish. The 3wt is great for slightly bigger water and high alpine lakes. If you are on the fence about buying a Butter Stick, just buy it. I promise it will be the only rod you grab on the way out the door.

        100% fun with no saturated fat!

        Redington butter stick 6' 6" 4wt flyrod

        • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

        Picked up this rod so I can fish hobble creek and little streams. This rod is amazing! I don't have to worry about snagging on trees and being a glass rod I can cast my fly right where I want it to go.

        Buttery Smooth Casts

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I love this rod. I picked it up in order to fish some high mountain streams for little trout and couldn't be happier. It is super fun to cast and is really awesome. I love the buttery orange color it has and the simplicity of the set up is really great. I paired it with a redington zero reel and the combo is awesome. I would highly suggest this rod to anyone looking to fish for some smaller trout and wants something simple and easy to cast.

        Great Rod

          Couldn't be happier with my 7ft Redington Butter Stick. This series of glass sets the bar to all other competitors. It's easy casting ability and length make it my go to rod for small creeks and high Unita lakes. Paired with the "Rise" series reel, this set up will be with me for delicate presentation of dry flies and even fishing small nymphs. Thanks Redington for keeping my lines tight!

          Glass is alive and well

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          This is an absolutely fantastic little fiberglass rod in my opinion. I have the 7' 3wt paired up with the Redington Zero reel loaded with RIO Trout LT line which is an almost perfect combo.

          Butter Stick is not just a clever name, this rod is very soft. The delicate nature of the fiberglass rod makes roll casting light nymph rigs and precisely presenting tiny dries very easy. The only times that this rod does not perform well is in the wind or trying to throw big bugs or make long casts. Definitely made for short range, simple presentations.

          Best used for catching small fish in small streams, don't let the soft nature fool you, I've landed 20" fish on this after a long hard fought battle.

          I highly recommend picking one of these up for your quiver.

          Dry Fly Champ!

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've got the 7' 3wt and paired this with the Zero reel loaded with Sharkwave Ultimate Trout Taper. It's the obvious choice for small streams or when heads are up and drys are producing results. Perfect presentations and solid short range accuracy make this a great rod to grab when fish are spooky. Everyone needs to have one in their collection.

          So Fun

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          This rod is so much fun to fish with. Great for high country creeks and lakes. It is super easy for any beginner to pick up and learn to cast a dry fly. Also hard to overset the hook on a fish because it is so buttery! One of the best additions to my quiver that I have made in a long time!

          soft presentation

          • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

          I am not a subtle guy, just ask any girl I've ever hit on :P, but fishing with this rod noticeably improved my presentation (switched from 5 wt graphite rod). I got the 7' 3wt for getting in small streams, going after brookies. Beautiful for bow and arrow casts, and I still have no problem sending 30-40 ft casts accurately.
          One thing I did notice, the dots at the connections between segments do not line up between the top and middle, but the thing performs like a dream so I can't really complain about a dot.

          Small Streams Big Fun

            I have the Butter Stick in a 7 ft 3 wt. with a Redington Drift reel and RIO Trout LT weight forward line and it is so much fun on small streams. This set up really excels at shorter casts and laying down your fly with a "light touch" , get it? 'Cause the line is the Trout Light Touch?

            This rod doesn't need a heavy front taper to the line, there is so much action in the rod that using a long front taper or a double taper line would pair well with this. This is my new go to rod when following little blue lines around on a map.

            Short enough to stay out of overhanging trees or brush delicate enough not to spook your target fish. The 3 wt is a perfect dry fly rod for throwing midges, caddis, small hoppers, BWO's and really any dry you have in your box.

            It's Like Butta Baby!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            Fiberglass rods are making a strong comeback in the fly fishing world. Redington was wise enough to jump on the wagon with their Butter Stick rod. I have the 8' 5wt and don't want to even think about using another rod. The rod is a great all day rod. I can throw tiny tricks in the morning, hoppers and the like in the middle of the day, and wholly buggers as it gets dark. I can do all of this on one rod. Granted....if I want to chuck some major meat at night I would need a different rod, but for most of the local SEPA streams I fish it is perfect.

            The rod is a great yellow color with beautiful orange wraps. The reel seat is stunning.....everything about this rod screams quality. It has that awesome vintage vibe and it really stands out when you match it with an old school reel.

            The rod is a nice medium action and is a pleasure to cast. I know this is not the most expensive rod out there by any means, but it is a pleasure and joy to fish with. Join the fiberglass revolution and grab a butterstick!

            It's Like Butta Baby!
