Swinging with the Scott T3H from Mangled Fly Media on Vimeo.

Scott Rod Pro Staffers Kevin Feenstra, Brad Petzke, and Jon Ray give the new T3h two-hand rods a workout on Michigan steelhead. Each one worked with a different model suited to the waters they guide. All Scott rods are designed to fish as well as they cast. All three anglers found that like all Scott rods, the T3h has soul. If you fish a Scott, you’ll understand. If you don’t fish a Scott, you need to.

The chase for the elusive musky is like no other drug I have ever felt, this belief that you must have that this is the cast that does it. The pain you must with stand when your fly is chased but not eaten. The sore shoulder that must be iced down, the ibuprofen that is consumed to keep the body going.
