Scott Session Review - New Fly Rods from Scott for 2024!

Scott Session Fly Rods - Get Yours Here Today!

We love testing new fly rods and even more so when they are from one of our favorite brands of all time. Scott has announced the brand new Session series, which are intended as freshwater / "all water" crossover rods, obviously leaning a bit more toward freshwater if you look at the weights offered (3wt-8wt but mainly in the 4/5/6 range). These new Session rods complement the existing Wave series (mainly saltwater/streamer rods) at the same price point - currently $675. Now we have the complete lineup of options from Scott in the upper-mid-tier price, ranging from a little 3wt Session to the overlapping 6/7/8wt rods with the Wave, and then all the way up to the 12wt Wave. As you know if you follow our reviews here at Salt Fly Pro, we sell a ton of Waves and have many happy customers reporting to us on them. The Session is fantastic and I think people are really going to love it.

Let's have a look at the different Session models:

3wt 8'0" (803/4)

4wt 8'6" (854/4)

4wt 9'0" (904/4)

5wt 9'0" (905/4)

6wt 9'0" (906/4)

7wt 9'0" (907/4)

8wt 9'0" (908/4) 

5wt 9'6" (955/4)

6wt 9'6" (956/4)

4wt 10'0" (1004/4)

5wt 10'0" (1005/4)

*We always work on a 'review in progress' basis. We'll go into more detail later on once we have more time to test these new rods with a variety of fly lines. Stay tuned for more info later on.

*Excerpt below is from Scott's description of their new rods:
"Scott’s team designed and crafted a series of rods to help you get the most from your time on the water-the most success, and the most enjoyment. 

Session rods are high-performance hand-crafted fly rods that blend some of our most acclaimed design approaches with our latest materials and technologies.

This combination creates rods that bring together high line speed and exceptional loop control with a light and lively feel in the hand. These traits have become known as Scott’s signature fast with feel action.

Session rods are finished with a new grip design, and custom machined aluminum reel seats featuring dyed box elder wood inserts. They also feature Silicon Nitride stripping guides and low glare light wire snake guides for a premium component package that’s a perfect match to the high- performance blanks.

All of that gives Session rods a wide bandwidth of performance for fishing at a range of distances, and for using a variety of flies and techniques with the same rod.

With their almost nothing there feel in hand combined with their easy smooth casting, Session rods pack technology loaded materials with advanced design and premium craftsmanship.

Most of all, Session rods are about having fun on the water and enjoying the rod in your hand."
