Fly Rod Review: Scott S4 905-4

February 27, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Michael Gracie notes that his move to a stiffer stick for throwing big bugs was probably overdue and says that the Scott S4 905-4 is “close to perfection” for big Western water:
“I think the Scott modus-beautification is stunning in a utilitarian sort of way. I look at the stick and it stares back with an ‘all business’ gleam in its eyelet. The only place where Scott decided to go for flair was with the reel seat, which is a combination of buckeye burl and nickel that says ‘I am wicked, but I’ve got a gorgeous streak.’ Usually it’s the other way around.”
