#customflyrod

Sorry it's so fast and out of focus, had to do it in under a minute for instagram... here's a video of the matte black on black rod. I don't often brag about my abilities, I tend to let my work speak for me. Some things are hard to show in still images and require a bit more. Finishing just the thread on any rod is not easy, much less a matte rod. Any run off onto the matte part of the blank instantly makes it go glossy like the thread. Everything has to be perfectly squared off all the way down the blank, all wraps on both sides, no loose threads or burrs in the thread can be left unattended. Then during the multiple coats of finish any slips or shakes can cause even the best wrapping job to be pointless. Additionally some may choose to finish each individual section separately so as to minimize any mistakes. That's not how I roll, I prefer to finish an entire rod from butt to tip so as to minimize wasted epoxy and time. Some may say this is a bad habit I prefer to look at the savings I can pass on to a client by minimizing billed time and wasted materials. Anyone who has attempted this type of finishing knows just how difficult it is and the required attention to detail it takes to pull off and do well. Wish I had a better camera that focused better, hopefully you get the idea. Here's to getting even better this year.

Not satisfied with all the colours of the rainbow, we created some of our own. From high gloss Ruby to translucent Smoke on CrystalGlass. We now have 61 colours and counting. With our in house developed proprietary painting system we have created a legendary range of rod colours. #ctsfishing #HookedOnTechnology

Can’t say enough good things about my custom @dccustomrods 8wt. Duncan knew exactly what I was looking for and made it a reality- this is easily the best stick I’ve ever picked up.

First fly rod was asked by a friend for a girly rod. Phone pictures color don’t show up exact but also features color changing tiger wrap with translucent glitter in there. #customflyrod #customflyrods #customrods #rodbuilding
Happy Vernal Equinox!!! But, more importantly, happy dry fly season!!!
Extremely happy with this build. 905-4 North Fork Composite. By far the fastest fly rod I’ve ever cast.

Swipe to see the spot I messed up finishing this rod. Some things are better left alone on a matte rod, still this one spot is going to eat at me and eat at me.

Meet our friend and customer, Zack Shannon @shandaman32. He’s currently in Spring Training with the @dbacks, and we’re cheering for his success! • • •
We met Zack last year, when he called SaraBella to design his newest fly rod. He chose a Teal rod with a beautiful Japanese message on the decal. We simply asked, “how’d you hear about SaraBella” and he told us about his search for a custom fly rod and his love of baseball. We’ve stayed in touch ever since. • • •
To Zack, fishing is “a great way to relax, have fun, and meet awesome people”. When he’s not training with the Diamondbacks, working out, or studying baseball, Zack is fishing. It helps to balance his mind and his body. • • •
We had the opportunity to meet Zack in-person in AZ a couple weeks ago. He joined the Archer family at a team dinner for their daughters’ soccer team. He drove across town, drank water, and ate like a hungry athlete. We all laughed, shared fishing stories, and wished him an awesome season. He was a class act and great role model for these young athletes. He respects his grandmother as a hard-working woman; the kindest person he knows. • • •
At SaraBella, we build rods for ALL fly anglers. We truly appreciate the support of men who choose #smallbusiness #womanowned and believe in our mission of #smartbeautifulfishing and bringing more women to this sport. We’re in this together, and together, we can make some big impact!! • • •
Cheers to more good stuff ahead for Zack Shannon. Zack, we’re grateful for you and we’re cheering for you!!

Sometimes this little space of photo sharing can really surprise you. In a social media driven world where we’re told we aren’t forming “real” connections, that’s exactly what you end up doing. And it leads to a fishing trip and first trout and all the great things.
So, take care in this space. Form connections and make memories and catch a fish or two while you’re at it!
Introducing a new standard in rod wrapping finish. The all new CrystalCoat™ ultra premium rod wrapping finish from CTS. A new formula that inhibits bubble formation and sets with unrivalled clarity. It goes on clear and stays clear.

Crystal clear.
