Leland on the Scott G2 Series
Welcome to the 21st Century! 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 gives 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.
Leland on 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
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.
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.
Scott on the G2 Series
"The new G2 is ready and able for the most technical trout fishing
you can throw at it. If you get a thrill stalking big wary trout with
tiny flies and light tippets, you've just found the perfect fishing
tool for the job. G2 rods turn over the longest, lightest leaders with
ease, and let you control drifts in the trickiest currents. They
generate the perfect combination of line speed and loop control, and
are pinpoint accurate. When you get just one chance to present a fly to
a fish, make it count. The G2, Scott's new Ultimate Presentation Tool."
Scott on Scott
"At our company there's a reason for doing what we do.
We call it the Scott Difference. We see it every day at work, preach it
to anyone within earshot and feel it in our fly rods every time we fish.
This mantra, which we call the Scott Difference, is embedded
throughout our workshop and crammed underneath our fingernails at the
end of each day. We perform this act of faith and worship towards
detail because we know it eventually makes its way upstream to our
dealers, and ultimately to you.
And even though you'll hear us talk about the Scott Difference we
actually can't take all the credit. It's a way of doing things that
began with Harry Wilson when he started Scott back in 1974, and has
been evolving in the hands of anyone who has made, sold, or fished
Scott rods ever since. We see it as a 28 year old heritage-in-process
that doesn't sit around the workbench talking about how good the
fishing used to be.
And when it's all said and done, we are rod makers and our goal is simple: To handcraft the ultimate fishing tool.
If our customers and friends can't see and feel what they're paying
for then we don't charge for it. The Scott Difference is tangible, and
we can point to it in every rod. The long list starts with hand fit
internal ferrules, individual flex rating, custom graphite, and hand
turned Portuguese cork grips, then keeps on going.
Like we said, it's all about a way of doing things, and it's all about how good the fishing's going to be.
Now get out there."
