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 at Scott who pursue this challenge, the rewards come from the journey as much as the results, because Scott has been making great saltwater fly rods for generations.
Scott designed the new 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 new 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.
ARC - Scott is the leader in composite blank reinforcement. Their latest Advanced Reinforced Carbon adds hoop strength and counteracts torque which significantly increases casting accuracy and line control.
Natural Finish - Creating a natural finish blank requires exacting tolerances, more care, and shows off the beauty of graphite. The Scott natural finish is all about making your rod lighter, more durable and better performing.
Multi-Modulus - Scott pioneered multi-modulus lay-up in blank design. They're able to precisely control stiffness along the length of the rod to build rods that load and unload more smoothly.
Made in USA - Every Scott rod is handcrafted, beginning to end, in Scott's shop in Montrose, Colorado by anglers who understand fly rods. Isn’t it better to know who built your rod?
Our Scott Tidal Combos include your reel choice, a premium Rio Avid or Orvis Access fly line, and backing at unbelievable combo prices, and FREE shipping. With an Angler's Lane Scott Tidal combo you can save enough $ to enjoy a nice dinner after a hard day's fishing.
* We recommend and package the Sage 6210 Reel with 10 weights, and the Sage 6212 Series reels with 11 and 12 weights. Contact us if you want a package using the Sage 4210 with 11 and 12 weights (which we think is a bit light). Sage 6210 paired with Tidal 12 weight performs better for big line-ripping species like tarpon, GT, sailfish (below) and others.Scott Tidal Series - Anglers Lane
^ Rio does not make an Avid Saltwater in 11 and 12 weights; therefore we package the Rio Tarpon line with the Motive 11 and 12 weight rods, and with any Tidal combo using the Hatch Finatic reel. You are receiving at least a $55 break on the Rio Tarpon line with these combos.
