This lady customer picked all the colors used in this build, however, because I'd been wanting to make this design for quite awhile, I may have influenced her choice by showing her these threads first. So, I hope she likes the results as much as I do.

American Tackle blank for 20 to 50 pound line, Pac-Bay seat, Fuji rubber gimbal and K guides. Rear grip has a new (to me) Am-Tac shrink tube over cork tape and fore grip is EVA.

The art is a faux tigerfish design, as it's a variegated thread wrapped with Iris for the base wrap, with a fish outline as an open cross-wrap on top. All the threads are poly from Voodoo.

It came out exactly as my mind's eye conceived it would.

I really like your idea for the open fish pattern! May I steal the idea? I feel better asking, even though I'll probably just borrow it anyway, LOL. Thank you for sharing.

Jim, there is no such thing as stealing in regards to rod building. Who did the first cross-wrap?

I'm glad to have inspired you to try it. Just show us what you come up with in the end.
