Product Description

Scott G Series 906-4  fly rod

9’0″ 6-weight, 4-piece rod

The Scott GS 906-4 is a superb nymphing 6-weight, capable of casting awkward nymph indicator rigs with ease.  It has plenty of backbone for playing heavy fish in big rivers like the Gunnison, but a sensitive tip that protects tippets magnificently.  It casts beautiful loops with dry flies, too, so anglers will have no hesitation in switching to a salmonfly or hopper.


  1. Moderate action 9’ 6-weights often feel heavy, hinged or wobbly. Continuing on theme for this series, the MS 906-4 swings with the ease of your favorite 4-weight, but has plenty of reserve for chucking sink tips, streamers and awkward nymph rigs. This rod proves that the easiest fly rod to cast with a strike indicator rig is one that flexes deeply enough to form a real casting loop with a short amount of line in the air. You’ll make fewer false casts with the GS 906-4 than with most classic fast action 6-weights. Faster is not always better. When choosing your nymphing line, stay away from those with an extra heavy head, such as the Rio Grand. Aggressive heads cast great on this rod, but overlining is not a benefit. Stick with more traditional tapers including the Rio Gold, Rio Technical Trout and SA MPX.

  2. This rod was my other favorite along with the 904. I really liked the ratio between lightness and power. Distance was easy, very easy, and this rod was supremely stable with most of the fly line outside of the tip. Highly accurate and highly intuitive like the rest of the GS models, the GS 906 should be seriously considered as a Gunnison rod. I really like moderate 6 weights for Western trout fishing. I like the added weight of the line to carry large hoppers and stonefly droppers and to help out in the wind. I think the 6 weight line gives the angler an edge in these conditions by making it all easier. However, that 6 weight has to mend, roll cast, and fish in close like a 5 weight. The moderate action 6 weight has been overlooked by the industry and anglers at large in recent years, let me tell you, the GS 906 is a rod not to be overlooked. It could be the rod that changes how you think about the 6 weight line. The Rio Gold was my favorite line.

  3. This rod is a dream to fish dry flies of all sizes, hopper dropper rigs, and nymph rigs. I often fish it with two or three size 10 nymphs with plenty of weight on a long leader and have no issues. I have not used it for streamers because I have a streamer rod a Sage Igniter 691. I think the G Series would do fine with a small or mid-sized streamer. I have both the Centric 906 FB and the G Series 906. My G Series has a fighting butt, that I had to special order. I love both Scott 6 weight rods and they both fish amazingly. The G Series just handles fighting fish better than any rod period. You never have to worry about your tippet or leader with a G Series Rod. You can’t go wrong with either Scott 6wt with a FB. I had a Sage X 690-4FB and it was a great streamer rod but just ok at nymphing, but it was not a good rod for throwing dries or hopper rigs. I have not fished the new Sage R8 Core, but I cannot imagine fishing two six weight rods any nicer than the Centric or G Series 6 weights.
