American Shad Decal(?)

I cannot seem to find a rod decal of an American shad. I know they aren’t the most popular fish for sport but I do love building rods for shad on steelhead/salmon blanks, and I would love to add a decal.

Anyone have any ideas where I could look or what I might try?

Thank you, Matthew. Do you know of a process or a business I can use that can convert that public image into a quality decal for a blank?

Call Decal Connections, they have fish decals and if they don’t have the one you want they will make you one. Great people to work with.

Thank you, Norman. I contacted that business to ask if they happened to already have an image in stock. If not, I will submit a public domain image; or perhas have my brother (graphic designer) create one in gyotaku style — that might be pretty cool if it looks like gyotaku in such a small size.

I am sure they could make them for you. A gyotaku fish would be very unique and distinctive. Good luck!
