Scott Fly Rods - F80, 8' 2-piece 5wt Fiberglass Fly Rod
For sale here is an early San Francisco-era Scott F80 fiberglass rod. 8' 2-piece for a 5wt line, built on a smooth yellow Lamiglas blank, serial #A-143, made in 1974. Excellent used condition. Bright guides wrapped in Gudebrod A tan windings, double wrapped at the feet. Spigot ferrules fit well with 3/64" gap, and are witness marked for ease of alignment. U-shaped hook keeper, 7.5" cork grip with varnished cork winding check, and gold featherweight reel seat with unique removable locking nut buried in the cork butt. Grip shows some soiling, but is smooth. Sold in original bag and tube with white decal. The black plastic tube cap is cracked, but intact. One of the best 5wt glass rods ever built, SF-era yellow glass Scotts have long been coveted by collectors and anglers alike. An absolute delight to cast.
