Scott F Series Fly Rods

Scott Fibertouch rods have been so popular with our guides and customers over the decades that nothing about the new F Series feels surprising. We believe these are some of the finest fly rods on the market of any material and at any price. Most striking is the look of the new F Series, an orange dye-impregnated glass that is visibly original but references the fiberglass rods of the 1970s. Except for the action style, nothing about these rods is “old fashioned.” The blanks are constructed from elastic “E Glass” with the same high-tech prepreg resin used in Scott Radian and Meridian fly rods. The new resin, combined with the improved Scott Internal Ferrule and clever new blank tapers, results in rods that are notably lighter than their predecessors.

New F Series rods are more “intuitive” in both action and accuracy. They bend deeper but recover faster than the F2 Series. This may seem impossible, but you’ll feel it in every cast. These rods track much straighter with less bounce, so your fly will land right in those tea cups under willows and behind boulders. Scott has also upgraded the hardware, utilizing a slide band over cork reel seat on the F 583-4 and F 622-4, and an uplocking aluminum over cork seat on larger models. The grip really completes these rods, a reduced Trout Western of Scott’s own design. The cork is Flor quality, the finest available, and Scott finishes the F Series with expensive titanium SiC stripping guides, Snake Universal guides, measuring wraps, alignment dots and CNC milled reel seats. In a word, they are exquisite.
