This is the ever so popular Reeling-Up pendant with an enamel painted Bluegill/Sunfish and a 9mm highlighted fly reel. This pendant style has been showcased in many fly magazines and is my #1 selling pendant.
This pendant design has a 9mm S Handle Fly Reel with a concealed bale and the wire wrap with the loop mimics the fly line.
It reminds me of being out on the lake, reeling up, and then the fish jumps right out of the water in front of me, hence not a Tight Line. The graceful wire loop adds character and soft lines to this design.
It is available without a chain. You can choose to wear it on a 2mm black leather cord, 1.2mm and 1.6mm Sterling Silver Snake Chain. The most popular length is either 16 inches or 18 inches because the pendant drops down the neck a good ways. A new option is the 1.2mm Spiga/Round Wheat as an adjustable chain that goes to a max of 20″, so it’s great when you want to wear the pendant shorter on some days.
This smaller fish version of the Reeling Up pendant style is also available in various Trout.
