If you stalk big, wary trout with tiny flies, long leaders, and light tippet, look no further for the perfect fishing tool.  G2 rods inspire confidence and fierce loyalty.

SCOTT A2  804-4    8 FOOT 4 WEIGHT    4 PIECE  …

Scott fly rods was founded in 1973 by Harry Wilson. Scott fly rods first started making fiberglass fly fishing rods and then progressed into designing graphite fly fishing rods.   Today, Scott fly rods continues their tradition of looking to the future of design and innovation for fly fishing rods. Cast a Scott fly rod and fish with the ultimate fly fishing rod. Scott fly fishing rods are designed to be on the cutting edge of fly rod technology and innovation.
Overall you could describe this  trout rod as medium fast; they are certainly light in the hand and generate stacks of line speed with nice tight loops, but most importantly, like all Scott rods they have that great fishability feel to them.

The reel seats are what you’d expect to see on a premium rod range, the freshwater rods featuring an REC anodised machine cut aluminium seat with a black ash wood spacer. The saltwater models are fitted with a customised channel lock reel seat which holds heavy saltwater reels well. The rods are fitted with high grade corks and are finished off with an aluminium winding check, again just like a premium rod range. Strippers are SIC and the snakes are high quality light wire.

When it comes to the blanks you’ll notice that Scott have gone back to their roots by adopting a natural unground finish similar to their premium series. Not only does this create an effective matt finish, the lack of grinding creates a more consistent blank that is up to 25% stronger than a ground blank. The finished rods are supplied with a cloth bag and a cordura tube.

All Scott A2 rods were hand made in the USA at the Scott factory in Montrose, Co.

This is a great NC rod, perfect for small streams and DH waters folks in this area fish so often….this rod is in MINT CONDITION.

NOTE:  This rod is also listed on eBay and it will be sold within a few days…..I can end the auction and sell it to one of our local customers but the only way to do that is to know right away that you want the rod.  Otherwise, it will sell on eBay, rods like this go immediately as its a prize.
