REEL TECH CUSTOM-Dragon Themed Spinning Rod

Finished a custom Rod for a son who wanted to get his father an extra special gift for his birthday. He left it up to me to design the rod with one request, he said his father would love it if there would be some Italian flair and if at all possible, some type of dragon. This is what I came up with. I think it came out beautifully, his Dad is going to be STOKED!!
