Whether you are a rod builder looking to try something new on your next project or an angler who wants to have an eye popping piece of art that catches fish, painted dragon scales are for you. With painted dragon scales you are able to have a decorative thread wrap that matches your rod blank, reel seat, or other paintable components. This technique is a fairly simple way to make your custom fishing rod stand out. Being able to coordinate your decorative thread wraps to the rest of the rod with an exact color match really increases the aesthetic appeal. Painted dragon scales also give a fishing rod a more streamlined appearance and helps tie all of the elements of a fishing rod together. With painted dragon scales you can choose any color you desire. Like other custom rod designs, this technique can be incorporated into builds themed to sports teams, corporations, events, or anything else your imagination can dream up. Below is a video showing how we make painted dragon scales. If you are a rod builder, give this technique a try, I don't think you will be disappointed. If you are an angler and interested in having a custom fishing rod with painted dragon scales that is designed specifically for you, reach out and let us know. You can give us a ring, message us on social media, or email us at email@example.com.
Tight lines and fish custom!
