How to apply a Leather foregrip for a game rod

Hi all,
I've been searching the web to try and find some info on how to apply / make a leather to a foregrip for a game rod. I have made a couple in the past but just can't seem to get the rippling effect how I'd like it. The store-bought rods leather finish looks good, but I can't seem to replicate them.

Also with the leather strapping, does anyone know where you can get the leather that has gold stripping or other impregnated color?

Cheers
Russ

Bob beat me to it. That is a particularly detailed article, with step by step photos, and no way I could cover it in a simple forum post.
