Scott A4
« on: July 25, 2013, 10:06:57 AM »
When this series came out withing the last two years, I was looking for a six weight, sold my Loomis Shore Stalker to Yoda.

When I found a shop that actually carries a good inventory of Scott, brought this puppy home, but almost didn't buy it because my thinking is a six should have a fighting butt  :D

but I fishing it some and loved the rod but still wanted a fighting butt, emailed Scott and Ian Crabtree always answers within the hour if he's in. As he said they don't offer all the bells and whistles on A4 line, I understand (but think they are missing sales)

My FFF club has a sell/swap at the July meeting every year. So, I thought what the heck will take it and see if I have any interest, laid it on table and first person that picked it up was reaching in pocket for a wade of hundred dollar bills ;D

Figured I might get lucky and get a S4 on sale if they ever close them out. Called Ian on Friday about the S4 future, had he cast new RIO Perception line. Cost to build a fighting butt for the A4. He said they do a custom run every year for a fly shop in Arkansas, for their shop smallie rod. Said to give them a call and I did, they had 3 left from this years build.

Anticipation of opening up box to see what I think a six should look like  :o

it's killing me

what I'm talking about

she gets tested after lunch

and McLellan's Fly Shop price is same as all other A4's

I've just not aquired the taste for Scott rods yet. They are some of the most beautiful and well crafted fly rods made for sure. That one is no exception.
