Scott Fly Rods
Founded in 1973, by Harry Wilson, Scott quickly became known for their fine fiberglass fly rods. However, very soon, they began to experiment with graphite. Within a few years Scott developed, their signature, tapered hollow internal ferrule. In the late 1970's Scott's pioneering graphite rod, designed specifically for salmon and steelhead, was introduced. Further, they initiated one of the first true quality control rating systems for rod blanks. The result was greater consistency in rods throughout the production process. Below are the best fly rod models from Scott, as well as optimized fly fishing outfits that that make every cast and catch a bit better.
Scott is a company whose history is filled with firsts.
They were the first rod maker to introduce a five-piece fiberglass rod.
They began to experiment with graphite as early as any rod maker. Scott
was the first rod company to successfully develop and sell multi-piece
graphite rods; and the list goes on and on. This foresight has lead to a
number of developments in production and design that has made them one
of today's industry leaders. The first Scott series to feature four
piece rods in 2-12 weight sizes is the S3 series which soon lead to the
S3S and now the S4 fly rods.
The S3 represented the best tip flex rod Scott has ever
made. Given the overwhelming success of the S3 the team at Scott added a
saltwater series to the line. Having gathered input from dealers and
pros alike, this series will no doubt find itself battling some of the
world's ultimate game fish. The S3S rods load as quickly as any rod out
there. They are deadly accurate which is good for the angler and bad
for the bonefish. This series features the patented Scott ARC
reinforcement; this addition helps the angler land those trophy fish you
see in all the magazines. All of these developments and design have
lead to the design of "new" best tip flex rod the S4 fly rod.
