This is the Steelhead “Fish-On” Pendant. The photo is the original version. A highlighted version is available and a photo is in the gallery here.
The steelhead has a narrower horizontal groove line down its side and a criss-cross textured pattern within the metal to accentuate the scales of this steelhead and help decipher the difference from it and the rainbow trout. The dark spots are concentrated along the upper body and tail.
The bale is created by a wire wrap mimicking the fly line coming from the side of the fish’s mouth and curling up and soldered to the back of the dorsal fin. The line then curves upwards and coils around the cord or chain of your choice.
It is available in 3mm plain or braided black leather cord or a 2.5mm Sterling Silver snake chain. It is also available without a cord or chain if you prefer to use one you own.
There is a new highlighted version available. I use the black enamel paint to bring out the detailed characteristics of this species. The option to purchase it is here and also on it’s own listing. You can look through the photo gallery and see the highlighted and the original versions.
The other great option is the fully enamel painted version of the steelhead in all it’s beautiful colors. The steelhead vary a lot in their colors depending on season and location. If you want a full colored rendition enamel painted I will gladly do it from a photo of your special catch. It would add $65.00 and all work is guaranteed.
