The Rajeff Brothers, Steve & Tim
grew up in San Francisco. As soon as they were old enough to ride bikes,
they showed up at the Golden Gate Casting Club nearly every day. Each
started casting fly rods when they were about nine years old, and they
learned from the best casting instructors of the era. Many of their early
instructors were already World Champions.
Steve Rajeff has dominated the world of competitive casting for over
three decades. He has no less than 29 national and 13 world All Round
Championships on his casting resume. Steve holds the current National single
and two hand fly distance records at 238 feet and 295 feet respectively.
Steve and his brother Tim were winning teammates in the recent Outdoor Life
Network Flyfishing Masters Cham
Tim Rajeff: Tim is Steve Rajeff's younger brother.
You might have seen him. He's that magnetic guy hanging around the
casting pond at the sport shows, the Energizer Bunny guy...the one throwing
those incredibly long narrow loops of fly line. Or maybe you've seen him
OLN channel where he hosts LL Bean Guide to the Outdoors.
future calls for hosting more fly fishing and casting schools combined with
an advanced casting book and video with his brother Steve.
you can imagine, growing up in the competitive atmosphere of the Golden Gate
Casting Club, Steve and younger brother Tim developed an intense fly casting
rivalry between each other. The rivalry peaked in 1984 when Tim won the
National combined Fly Casting Distance and Accuracy trophy and narrowly
missed the grand all-round title as well. In doing so Tim broke the national
distance record for the ten weight line class at 186 feet and the 15 foot
rod class record at 265 feet. Tim’s international recognition came in 1984
in Lintz Austria where he captured the World’s Single Hand Fly Distance gold
medal with a cast of 205 feet.
Tim retired from competitive casting in 1985
and now is the owner of Rajeff Sports, the North American distributor of Aiflo fly lines and owns his own rod company,
ECHO rods and reels.
Tim Rajeff is
the driving force behind Rajeff Sports, which produces Echo Fly Rods and
Reels, and imports Airflo Fly Lines. Tim and his potent staff designs and
produces very popular rods and lines. All the Rajeff Sports Spey and Switch
