Can a fly rod have a soul? That might be pushing it, but a fly rod can have a difference, and that difference can change the way we feel about our fishing and even the way we fish. At Scott, we’ve spent almost 40 years working to perfect the design, craftsmanship, and performance of fly rods. Along this journey, we’ve developed a way of doing things that we call The Scott Difference. It’s focused on handcrafting every rod we sell. It’s driven by our love of the sport, the places it takes us, and the people we meet along the way. It’s about striving to make the ultimate fishing tools. Tools perfectly suited to their fishing applications. We live it every day in the shop, cutting precise patterns from custom made graphite materials, carefully creating cork grips, and lovingly wrapping each guide by hand. Most of all, the Scott Difference is about the people. The people who handcraft exceptional fly rods, the people who fish them, and the people who believe there’s a better way to do things. Some anglers tell us they started with another brand, or maybe even fished with four or five other brands before fishing a Scott. These stories have similar endings. People tell us they can’t believe it took so long to finally ‘get it’. They tell us they finally found a rod with soul.
