Abel Classic Fly Reels

Abel designed its Classic line for trout anglers; however, these reels have been getting more popular with bonefish enthusiasts.

Recognizing that the retro look is in, Abel took that same concept and applied it to its new line of reels, appropriately dubbed Classic. Truth be told, Abel designed its Classic line for trout anglers; however, these reels have been getting more popular with bonefish enthusiasts and those pursuing smaller striped bass. They are engineered with an adjustable click/pawl drag and a line overrun system, and anglers can choose between a vented or solid spool. Constructed of cold-rolled 6061-T650 aircraft-grade aluminum and anodized using Abel’s proprietary method, these reels are tough.
