Few pleasures compare to owning and fishing the finest bamboo fly rods. The truly great ones are works of art and highly refined fishing tools. Scott SC rods are masterfully crafted with the finest components and traditions, and they push bamboo rod building technology forward. The blanks are hollow built with stabilized nodes and butt swells. Sections are joined with hand made Hariki nickel silver ferrules. Each cork is selected for the highest grade and each piece of wood for its unique and expressive figuring. The hand made Snake Brand guides are wrapped in clear silk tipped with burgundy, and the full dip varnish work is impeccable. See for yourself why Scott SC bamboo rods are awarded and recognized as the finest.
