Back to All Fly Rods
Scott Tidal 909
Permit, big Bull Reds, and Baby Tarpon are all in the bullseye with the Scot Tidal 909. Power to fight fish deep into the rod blank is one aspect of this particular 9 weight that helps it stand out from the crowd – plus the $495 price point!
The Scot Tidal rod series features purpose-built, mid-priced fly rods designed with the Saltwater angler in mind. These fast action rods load easily for short casts while having a taper design that will carry a lot of line for those hero shots as well. Designed for the angler with a relaxed casting stroke, the Tidal family of fly rods delivers high performance at an accessible price. Durable, beautiful, and crafted by hand in Montrose, Colorado.

X-Core - X-Core combines the industry’s leading composite technologies with cutting edge design. We use fast taper mandrels with low-mass, thin-walled blanks and proprietary ARC reinforcement to create rods that have stiffness with feel, and stability with sensitivity.
Multi Modulus Blanks -By varying the fiber tensile modulus along the length of the rod, we’re able to precisely control the stiffness and recovery speed of our blanks.
Natural Finish - Natural finish blanks aren't subjected to the rip through the sanding belt, nor are they covered with heavy paint to add pop in your fly shop. We're firm believers in the natural beauty of graphite. A natural finish blank is built to exacting tolerances. Scott's advanced resin systems permeate the blank, leaving a durable finish that will stand up to years of abuse.
SCOTT GRAPHITE AND FIBERGLASS ROD ORIGINAL OWNER WARRANTY
We design rods for high performance and build them to last a lifetime. Sometimes things don't go as planned and you break a rod (sometimes even we mess up). It's for these occasions that we warranty our fly rods and have a dedicated repair department of rod craftsmen.
The Scott Lifetime Warranty applies only to the original owner of new graphite and fiberglass rods, purchased from an authorized Scott dealer, that are registered within 30 days of purchase.
Unregistered or resold rods are not covered by this warranty. Rods purchased from third party sites such as Ebay or Amazon are not covered by the warranty.
The warranty does not cover loss or theft, loss or damage caused by transportation such as airlines, UPS, FedEx, US Mail, intentional damage, or damage from neglect. Scott guarantees every registered fly rod and blank we craft with a serial number greater than 35,000 (made after ~ 1994). Thread colors may vary from those on the original rod. Discontinued cosmetic options and components may be replaced with their most comparable equivalent.
As of December 2019, the cost to warranty and service a Scott Fly Rod is $50 plus shipping.
