Thread: Scott Original G-Series Rod or Not

  1. Default Scott Original G-Series Rod or Not

    Hi Guys,

    I'm new to this forum as well as fly fishing. So here it is, I did as much research as I could on all types of rod (bamboo, fiberglass, graphite). And unfortunely all the bamboo rods I wanted fell out of my price range. So I looked into fiberglass/graphite rods. I decided I wanted something like an Orive "Far & Fine" or a Scott original G series rod. Well I supposedly found one on ebay this past weekend, however I couldn't find much information on exactly what the Scott blank rods looked like. I won the auction and now I'm a little concerned as to whether the rod is really a Scott original g series.

    Can anyone confirm? I'd appreciate it very much!

    I can't attach pics yet so I put the link.

    Thanks,

    congrats on the new rod. you'll love it ! I had a G series 9ft 5wt I bought in 1987. traded it off last year for a brand new spey rod. the best single handed rod I ever owned. enjoy

    I'd suggest a vintage Pflueger Medalist. Great reel that you can pick up cheap and which looks amazing on a classic rod like an old Scott G.
