Scott Fly Rods
Scott fly rods were
founded by Harry Wilson in 1973. This company is an
innovator in many different areas of the fly rod industry. The first 9' 4 weight
was built by Scott in 1975. In 1983, Scott developed the first 5 piece
graphite rod. It took almost 15 years before any competitors would follow
suit. Scott Fly rods are some of the best out there. Read some of the

G2: The new Scott G2 fly rod is a modernization of an old classic. The guys at Scott Fly Rods took what was once THE classic dry fly rod, stepped it up with new materials and modern design to develop a dry fly rod that give you, the angler, the control of where your fly is going. Yes, it is still the sweet, soft casting rod but now it has the punch needed to be as technical as you want. Yes, it still has the tippet protection of old, but it has the muscle to control any drift pattern you can find. The new G2 fly rod is more than just a tightened up G series, it is a rod of purpose and that purpose is to catch trout. Line weights 2-7. Comes in 4 pieces. Priced $675.

models. Priced $675.
