Gots Me a New Fly Rod!

Post to Twitter

I’m one step closer to actually fly fishing instead of just tying flies. Today I got a package in the mail from a guy off the Florida Sportsman forum. I’m now the proud owner of a Scott SAS 908/3 fly rod. I can’t find a whole lot of info on this particular model but here’s what I did find:

Water type: Bass lakes, salmon and steelhead rivers, saltwater flats and mangroves
Optimum range: 30-90 feet
Wind rating: 8
Techniques: Aggressive casting and fishing with large flies, both sinking and floating lines
Fish species: Largemouth Bass, Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon, Pacific Salmon, Striped Bass, Bonefish, Redfish, Seatrout, Snook, Jacks

Looks pretty much like it’ll fit the bill for what I want. Seems to be a nice, all-around rod. It didn’t come with the sock but it did include a Cortland 444 Lazer 8wt. floating fly line and two leaders so I won’t be complaining. I’m very happy! I hope to have time tomorrow to swing by Black Fly Outfitters to pick up an Okuma SLV large arbor reel. If everything works out I’ll be able to start learning how to use it all this weekend!
