Product Description

AVAILABILITY NOTE:  Telluride Angler attempts to stock all Scott fly rods.  In this time of unprecedented demand, Scott has made the difficult decision to postpone the production of all Flex models until late fall.   We are out of this model, but would like to recommend the following alternatives which are either in stock or coming into stock this summer.  Please consult for specific availability.

Reviews

  1. FX 1005-4: The 9’ 6” and 10’ Flex models for 4 and 5-weight lines are much slower action than the long models for 6, 7 and 8-weight lines. Like the Flex 1004-4, the FX 1005-4 is relatively soft. It’s a great rod for keeping your fly in the water with single handed Spey and roll casts, but overhead casting with awkward nymph rigs and streamers will not be its forte. Both the FX 1005-4 and FX 1004-4 are more stable than their predecessors, however.

    Line Pairings (all WF5): Rio Gold (InTouch or regular), SA Trout Taper (regular or Wavelength), SA MPX, SA GPX Sharkwave, Rio Aqualux, SA Sonar Stillwater

  2. I felt like this rod had a little trouble creating line speed. I wanted to see a little more acceleration off the tip and out of the guides. The 1005 and 1004 are similar. Slight bounce but with a tip that still has enough substance to finish the fly cast. These rods aren’t really meant to throw the line overhead very well or very far and I feel like they were designed to fish in closer quarters using some of the more modern nymphing techniques. The tip is nice and soft and will certainly protect light tippets and make the necessary micro mends required for precise drifts needed in Czech style nymphing. Like the 1004 this rod is a big improvement over the 10 foot A4s.
