For sale here is an exquisitely-crafted leather rod and reel combination "backpack-style" case by leather artist, Annie Margarita. This 39 inch long rod case that includes painted carvings of a brook trout and a Kern River golden trout (and even some alevins) was constructed to fit up to a 9 foot, three piece rod and is properly padded for protection. The reel case is lined with thick shearling and is large enough to accommodate anything from a 2 7/8" diameter reel up to a 3 5/8" reel, and wide enough to accept a wide drum reel within this range as well. The reel case detaches from the rod case via a leather strap with buckles. The external shoulder strap on the rod case is adjustable.
Annie's attention to detail, artistic creativity, and overall skill places her in the top tier of leather goods makers and today's anglers are super lucky she has recently expanded her works to include fine fishing tackle cases. All of Annie's cases are one-of-a-kind!
If you are interested in commissioning Annie to build your own custom rod or reel case, or anything else you can think of, pleasecontact me.
