Abel Reels





Founded in 1987, Abel Reels started as a side project in Steve Abel's aerospace machine shop and has grown into one of the most respected reel manufacturers in the industry. In the 80's, when most high-end fly reels were arriving from overseas, Abel was producing reels here in the United States, making a reputation with super-tight tolerances and strong, lightweight billet aluminum. Abel was the first company to bring machined fishing pliers to market, and the first to offer handpainted, artist-series finishes on their reels. From classic designs like the Trout Series, to the big-game, large-arbor juggernauts of the Super Series, there is an Abel reel for any fish, and every reel is an entirely US-made masterpiece.
