Default Another custom colored reel

Earlier this year some of you may remember I painted up one of my Sage reels burnt orange and it was excellent. During the thread there was lots of talk about doing a fish pattern. Well sorry to Abel and DeYoung, but Im not paying that much for something that could/would get dragged on rocks and wood, so spray paint and me are good enough. I debated about which trout pattern to go with but I went with my first initial thought for this reel and did rainbow trout. Enjoy.

Still want to do a small reel in brookie pattern, guess I'll need to buy one.
