Abel fishing reels and their growing range of accessories are among the most lustful items of fishing tackle available. Whether you’re a fly fisher or not, there’s no denying the quality and beauty that oozes out of every item they make.
Take 2012, for example. Abel have released two new reels, one for Spey, one Switch, both in a new (for them), old-school, classical design. There’s a new reel finish by Montana artist Derek DeYoung, plus two of the most adorable fishing accessories I think I have ever seen – the Abelight flashlight/torch and the Abel Nippers, both available in a multitude of jaw-dropping finishes.
