To catch steelhead and salmon, you need to swim the fly at the right angle, the right depth, and the right speed. The right rod can help solve that puzzle.

But these are the fish of a thousand casts, so preferences also play a big role. You can fish the same fish in the same water with a single hander, a short two hander, or the very longest rods. You can fish floating line, sinking line, dry flies, wet flies, traditional swing, riffle hitch, nymph and indicator. Long belly, Skagit, Scandi. The variations are endless. Scott gets it, so they made a series of rods that satisfy your every preference.

Scott Swing fly rods were meticulously developed and are loaded with technology and attention to detail to meet those demands.

Fished and tested by professional anglers and expert casters from Alaska to the Great Lakes, from Canada to Norway, and from the Pacific Northwest to the Northeast, Scott left no stone unturned making sure each rod was fine-tuned for its intended purpose.

Scott Swing fly rods feature progressive loading actions, fast recovery speed, directional stability, and a light in hand feel, from combining finely tuned new tapers with our multi-directional, multi-modulus layups, ARC2 reinforcement, Carbon Link resin system, and the very finest components.

Breakthrough components include new titanium tangle-free stripping guides with Silicon Nitride inserts that allow casts to shoot further and help prevent tangles in mono or braid running lines. Snake Brand Universal snake guides grace the rest of the rod to round out the guide set.

Scott also designed a new fully milled aluminum reel seat with aggressive threads for operating with cold hands, type 3 hard coat, and specially milled reel foot pockets that securely hold current performance reels and most vintage reel feet. All new front and rear grip designs turned from Flor grade cork ensure comfort, feel, and longevity.

Like all Scott fly rods, Swing rods are hand-crafted, one at a time, in Montrose, Colorado.

Sometimes the fishing, or your preferences, just call for a single hander. These are also the finest general streamer rods Scott makes.

Perfect when the species or water call for a single hander, especially when deploying techniques like nymph and indicator, or micro-tube riffle hitching. This is also one of Scott's all time favorite streamer rods for any species.

This is a great all-rounder for destinations like Alaska or Iceland.

Yep, you’re in the lineup bombing bead chain eye flies to the opposite bank on sinking shooting heads, settling in for the swing, and waiting for a sea fresh chromer to tug on the line. This rod will cast a shooting head a country mile. It also excels for targeting big steelhead or salmon in tight quarters rivers like some found in SE Alaska, Great Lakes region, or Norway.

It’s our top choice for a dedicated silver salmon rod, handling both top water and sunken flies with ease.
