Scott Tidal Fly Rod
The Scott Tidal, while primarily a salt water rod, has become my favorite smallmouth rod for the upper Potomac in the 6 wt. Not only does it deliver the biggest flies I choose to throw on a dime and without effort, but it also still bends over like a 6 wt should when I have a fish on. It has taken quite a beating on my kayak and on our rafts and it seems to come out at the end of the day still in one piece. It's price is also hard to beat!
Choosing a fly rod to fish the world’s saltwater species clearly isn’t the easy way. It’s the Hard Way. But, for those of us who pursue this challenge, the rewards come from our methods as much as our results.
We designed the Tidal saltwater fly rods to make the challenges a little less, well... challenging. Accurate presentations to cruising fish and good turnover into the wind are now easier than ever. These salt specific rods load quickly, generate high line speed with a relaxed casting stroke, and have ample power to control hard fighting fish.
Like all Scott fly rods, they’re handcrafted start to finish in our Colorado workshop by skilled rod builders using the best materials available. Tidal rods come in models to cover any species or situation you’ll encounter on the flats or open waters.
Take the Tidal series fly rods on your next saltwater adventure. They’ll make the Hard Way a bit easier… and might even make your guide smile, too
