How Do You Wrap a Chevron on a Fishing Rod?

Wraping a chevron on a fishing rod is a great way to customize the look of your rod and add some extra flair. It’s actually quite easy to do, and you don’t need any specialized tools or materials. All you need is some fabric, such as cotton or wool, and a few other supplies.

First, you’ll want to cut the fabric into strips of equal width. The width of the strips should be slightly larger than the diameter of your fishing rod.

You can then wrap the fabric around the rod in a spiral pattern, starting from the bottom and moving up. Be sure to leave enough space between each wrap so that it looks neat and even.

Next, you’ll need to secure each wrap with tape. This can be done with either electrical tape or masking tape.

Once all the wraps are secured, it’s time to add some color and decoration. You can choose any type of thread in whatever colors you like, and use a running stitch to attach it to each wrap.

Finally, use a hot glue gun to attach beads or other decorations onto each wrap. This makes your chevron look even more unique and stylish! Once everything is secure, all that’s left is to give your rod one final layer of protective coating.


Wrapping a chevron on a fishing rod is an easy way to customize its look and add some extra flair. All you need are some strips of fabric, electrical or masking tape for securing them in place, thread for decoration, and some beads or other decorations for added pizazz. With these simple steps, you can make your fishing rods stand out from everyone else’s!
