Product Description

Scott Wave 909-4 fly rod

9’0″ 9-weight, 4-piece fly rod
Comes in a cordura-covered PVC case with separate cloth liner




  1. A rod with major range and power, the Wave 909-4 handles the critical lines for this fishing category with distinction, including the Rio and SA Bonefish tapers, Rio Elite Permit, SA Grand Slam and various striper lines. The Wave 909-4 has a high-end feel: light, stable, responsive to a wide range of casting styles and with plenty of wood in the butt section. It lifts 50 feet of line off the water with instant loop control, a critical capability for 2nd or 3rd shots in the permit game. This is a high performance 9-weight at any price.

  2. This is probably my favorite rod in the Wave series. It is remarkably smooth and very stable. The rod has plenty of power but has a nice low swing weight and fishes great in close. The timing of this rod is very predictable and intuitive. This is a rod that nearly everyone will cast well with only a very small learning curve. It’s a nice, well-rounded rod that can be used for several applications. It would make a great bonefish rod on windy days and would be a blast to target permit with on a nice calm day. Though it is not as automatic as its big brother, the Sector, it is still a very nice casting rod that stands up to a lot of other 9wt rods in a higher price point. I’ve played around with a few different lines on this rod and my favorite by far is the Rio Elite Permit WF9F. This rod loads well in close and holds a nice tight loop at distance.

  3. Scott Fly Rods knows how to make a 9-weight and the Wave 909/4 is no exception. You get a whole lot of fly rod for the money with the Wave. The 9-weight is such a versatile line weight in the saltwater world and I think the 909/4 is the standout of the series. You can generate a ton of line speed with the Wave 909/4. The rod doesn’t like a heavy headed line like the SA Infinity Salt. The rod can handle it, but the line overloads the rod in a way that made me feel like I had a capped coke bottle trying to hold in a Mentos: impressive energy, but too much for my taste. A Rio Elite Permit and the Airflo Universal Flats taper lets the rod throw loops like neon lights, crisp and level enough to leave the image burned into the sky. The stability on the long pickup for the quick re-cast is impressive. Yank the line up, let the rod tame the mess behind you and send it down the rifle barrel to the target. You don’t have to think a whole lot while casting this rod. The line speed is tremendous, but a shade slower than the Sector 909/4. I found that I could relax more while casting the Wave, although I could rip out a faster cast further with the Sector. The more casual cadence to the cast and the Wave’s penchant for holding up a tight line during the back cast give you a little more time in the moment of the cast. The Wave 909/4 is a flat-out great saltwater rod that punches above its price.
