The classic guide to creating beautiful rod art for experienced rod makers is available again. "Hand a person a custom made rod," says expert rod maker Dale P. Clemens, "and in almost every instance one of the first things he looks at is the decorative thread work." Rod thread art, whether eye-catching or subtle, highlights the beauty of a custom rod and showcases the angler s personality and taste. Clemens guides his readers through the process of creating thread art, using precise descriptions to avoid confusion and organizational tips to keep progress streamlined. Detailed instructions for wrapping and weaving are accompanied by an array of inspiring pictures. Clemens encourages the reader to unlock his or her creative side and play with color and design, producing a truly personalize custom rod. Offering a sound introduction to the essentials of thread work on round surfaces and more than one hundred rod art patterns suitable for both advanced hobbyists and professionals, "Custom Rod Thread Art" is the authoritative work on the subject. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, cat fish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a "New York Times" bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
