Georges Odier, who was my mentor, worked with Chuck Fothergill in Chuck's Shop in Aspen, CO . That was before Taylor Creek or any of the other shops in that area. George sold me on the Scott G Series when we fished together on the Roaring Fork and the Frying Pan...

I still have and use those Scott Rods, one of which is a 10', 5wt. G that Scott made for me in 1985, when they were under different ownership and REALLY took an interest in their customers...
