New Scott Women's Fly Rod Series the A4W

New Scott Women's Fly Rod Series the A4W

Scott A4W

Theresa Van Nooten does the finishing work at Scott Fly Rods including the fine calligraphy of the brand name, make, and model on the rod shaft. She's a dedicated fly fisher who lives near the Gunnison, and takes full advantage of it.

Her friends call her a she-man (pronounced schmaan) "because all I talk about is fishing and building fly rods, so, yeah, I'm a she-manand I'm proud of it." See her in this Felt Soul Media production shot at the Scott factory.

She liked the affordable performance of the A4 series, and the low physical weight, and in her spare time made herself a 4-piece 5-weight with lightweight guides, and a modified wells grip she personally sanded to comfortably fit her hands.


Soon her friends were asking for the same rod, and it became the A4W women's fly rod ($425). Like other A4s, it uses Scott's low-mass sleeve ferrule design and a multi-modulus design to get to a low blank weight. For more info see scottflyrod.com.
