Our earliest rods grew from fiberglass roots. In fact, when Scott Fly Rods started in the early 70’s, graphite fly rods didn’t even exist. We put our name on the map in those early years creating high performance, multi-piece glass fly rods for anglers venturing into the mountains to catch wild trout in cool crystalline waters.

Anglers were blown away by the smooth performance of our industry-first 5 piece fly rod, and by our full range of multi piece light line glass rods.

We’ve been making fiberglass fly rods ever since. There’s a good reason we continue to design and handcraft glass fly rods-it’s because we think glass is the best material available for casting at very close range, for enjoying the feel of small fish, and for just having a blast doing it.

With the all new F Series, we brought together new slimmer tapers with E-glass and our redesigned hollow internal ferrule to set a new standard for smooth, deep flexing rods. And, even though you can cast them a lot farther, these rods are optimized to cast beautiful accurate loops under 20 feet.

By carefully controlling the distribution of mass and stiffness, we created very light fiberglass rods that are stable and form sweet loops with just a few feet of line out of the tip. That way you can accurately cast into the next plunge pool or along overgrown banks even on creeks you can step across. That’s not something your graphite rods can do easily.

We paired that performance with best in class components like Snake Brand Universal snake guides, Flor grade cork grips, titanium SiC strippers, and CNC milled reel seats, and then added our little touches like measuring wraps and alignment dots. We didn’t miss a detail. After all, there’s a lot of history and pride in F Series rods.

So, if you’re in to fishing small pristine waters, and jewel like wild fish, treat yourself to the ultimate fishing tools-F Series rods from Scott-High performance, handcrafted, and pure fun.

The Wee One. Don’t let its little size fool you. This rod is zippy and forms tight loops at close range for precise casts in tight spots. Our favorite rod for micro water and long hikes.

Every Scott rod is made from beginning to end in Montrose, Colorado.

We take our mission to handcraft high performance rods very seriously. We use the knowledge gained from forty years of design experience with our commitment to handcraft every fly rod we make to give you top performance and benchmark quality. It's in all the little details that exceptional rods are distinguished from merely good rods.

Scott’s proprietary E glass is an innovative highly unidirectional glass and epoxy composite that helps us continue to advance fiberglass rod design.

Our glass rods are light, responsive, and exhibit the highest recovery speeds in fiberglass rods. Now you get all the feel of glass with high performance.

These new, patented, American made guides from Snake Brand feature radius feet which conform to the blank, have the best corrosion resistance, and even have a self-lubricating finish to shoot line farther.

With the highest strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance of any metal, our titanium guide frames let you worry about the fishing, and not about the salt. 

When we set out to build the best fly rods, we knew that we had to use the best components. We use guides made from materials chosen for their strength, lightness, and corrosion resistance. Frames are made from pure titanium - 65% lighter than equivalent stainless steel guides, and 100% corrosion resistant. Silicon carbide (SiC) rings are diamond polished to create the smoothest surface of any ceramic material. Just like our frames, SiC is resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and thermal shock. 

Why would you want guides made from anything else?

Our all new FiberFuse enhanced resin system uses new chemistry to create bonds between each graphite fiber that are over 20% stronger than conventional epoxy resins.

Walk down a rod rack at your local fly shop and you'll notice something different about Scott rods. Like everything we do, the Scott Natural Finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable, and better performing.

Most other rods on the shelf are run through a belt sander, tearing away the outside power fibers of the blank and introducing variance. Inadvertent flatspotting during the sanding process will weaken a blank, and blanks are designed with a margin of error to accommodate for oversanding. After the blank is sanded, a glossy paint is applied to add shelf appeal.

Natural finish blanks aren't subjected to the rip through the sanding belt, nor are they covered with heavy paint to add pop in your fly shop. We're firm believers in the natural beauty of graphite. A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. Scott's advanced resin systems permeate the blank, leaving a durable finish that will stand up to years of abuse.

Scott fly rods are hand crafted from the finest materials for high performance. These simple steps will ensure your Scott fly performs at its best and lasts a lifetime

Assembly and Disassembly Grasp the opposing rod sections close to the ferrule without touching the guides and firmly push them together with a downward twisting motion until the sections are aligned and tightly seated.

Disassemble by pulling and twisting apart with your hands close to each ferrule but not touching the guides.

Internal ferrules should have a 1/8-1/2 inch gap between sections to allow for proper flex and wear.

Effects Of Water On Your Rod Your rod is made to perform on the water and is designed to get wet. It is not made to withstand storage while wet. Always completely dry your rod before storing it. Otherwise, you will have mildew, mold, damage to the finish, and/or corrosion on your rod next time you take it out of its case.

Always rinse your rod with freshwater and dry thoroughly if you've used it in salt water.

Preventing Rod Breakage Avoid hitting your rod with hard or sharp objects like tree branches, weighted flies, split shot, or rocks. This can either break the rod or cause damage that will lead to breakage.

When fishing sinking lines, casting in windy conditions or using roll casts and spey style casts, periodically check the sections of your rod to make sure they are still assembled tightly and properly aligned. If the sections are not fit tightly, it’s possible to break the rod during a cast or while fighting a fish.

When fighting and landing fish, avoid rod angles greater than 45-50 degrees. Never lift a fish so that the butt of the rod is pointing at the fish (high sticking) or use your hand to lift fish from the middle of the rod.

To dislodge a snagged fly, point the rod directly at the snag and pull back on the line until the fly dislodges or the tippet breaks. It is much less expensive to lose a fly than to break a high performance hand crafted rod.

When stringing your rod, fold the end of the fly line in two and pull it and the leader straight through the guides without bending the rod.

The tip of your rod is the most vulnerable section as it is fine in diameter, light weight and usually nine or more feet away from you.

Most fly rods are broken in car doors, windows, ceiling fans, vacuum cleaners, pets, or just about anything other than actual fishing. Extra awareness when moving with your rod assembled or setting it down will extend its life.

Please take good care of your rod, and it will take good care of you.
