Lucas's Scott F2 And Tricos

Husband, father, photographer, and fish bum Lucas Carroll recently entered into the "dark side" of fiberglass with a purchase of a Scott Fly Rod Company F2 three weight and he has been chasing hatches on his local western New York waters with it since.



Lucas wrote... "I recently entered the world of fiberglass (T.F.M. being my main motivation), and picked up a Scott F2 703/3.  I got this rod for dry fly fishing on my smaller sized trout streams.  I paired it up with an old Martin 60 and XPS three weight line which seem like a nice fit.  Since getting the rod our trico season began and I have fished it several mornings and landed many trout.  It's crazy light in hand, casts delicately, and it has the ability to launch when you need it too.  It has quickly become my go to trout rod!" 




Striking images that I'm sure we haven't seen the last of.

Mark...the F2's are very nice and a wonderful dry fly rod.

I bought the exact rod as my first venture into the world of fiberglass...couldn't have picked a better rod, as Lucas has attested to.

I like that you paired a Martin 60 with it.

Hey Cameron, thanks for the links and for keeping such a great site going! I have a feeling that's not my last fiberglass rod purchase...

Lucas...I figure you're done for and several more fiberglass fly rods are much needed. Glad I could fuel a new insanity.
