2012 Abel Fishing Reels & Accessories

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.

The Super Fine Tip (SFT) line took Best New Fly Line at the recent European Tackle Trade Exhibition, and with good reason. The popularity of ‘nymphing’ has outgrown the respective tackle. Climax looked at what the technique tries to achieve and have made a purpose built fly line for the job.

Traditionally, fly anglers have relied on extended, light line leaders to facilitate a realistic dead drift of a nymph. However most anglers use a standard line. It’s this part of the set up Climax outlined as an area for refinement.
