Fly Rod Case: Tooled & Painted

Fly Rod Case: Tooled & Painted


Make your own fly rod case with a tooled & painted trout or salmon! If you are interested in learning or improving your REALISTIC leather working skills, this is the perfect opportunity.  Annie Margarita will guide students through this impressive two-day course where students will tool and paint a fish onto and then complete a fly-rod case.  The subject matter students will choose from a few selections created by Annie just for this class.  After the carving is complete, students will learn how to stain the artwork and continue with painting the scene with Annie's layering technique.  Expect to come away with a durable and stunning fly rod case from this 2 day class.  Annie is well-known for her realistic animal and aquatic subject matter, and has developed special techniques throughout the years to make those carving stand out in leather.  We have had many returning students who enjoy Annie’s teaching skills & success through her classes.

The photos are are examples of Annie’s work, and past years’ class projects.
