5 Things To Do Before Trout Season
1. Commission the build of your new custom Scott rod
bout a year ago, Scott Fly Rods released what we like to call the “Fly Rod Configuranator,” an online workshop that enables you to design your dream rod. Our staff spent so many hours trying to engineer the ultimate fly rod that we nearly had to block the site. If nothing else, there are worse ways to waste time on a computer. My top 3 recommendations are below:
- Do you need a new spring creek rod? Try Scott’s 883-4 G2. The matte finish blank and smooth action lends this rod perfectly to the challenges of spring creek fishing.
Maybe you are looking for a rod that that will effortlessly throw streamers inches from cut banks. Well, Scott’s S4S 690-4 is possibly the best 6 wt ever made. This rod has magic.
- If you have no idea why you are reading this because you're busy picturing the white sand of the flats, slap the titanium guide package on an 890-4 S4S and never think about rust again.
2. Organize your fishing gear.
We all know how important keeping your stuff organized is and the more you have the bigger issue it can be. If you're like me, you're always hunting for the perfect set up. It's time to pull out your gear and do an inventory. Yes, flies too! Here are some tried and true winners:
