To meet the demands of steelhead, salmon and other big water anglers using Spey-rod catching techniques, Abel has designed and machined the Abel Spey Reel and Abel Switch Reel for 2012.

Featuring fully enclosed frames and the company’s time-tested external adjusted pawl-click drag, the reels are styled in an ‘old school’ fashion, reminiscent of classic European Spey reels.

The Spey, weighing 9oz and measuring 1.100ins wide, is the newest reel designed for 8-weight to 10-weight Spey fly lines. It is machined from 6061-T650 cold-finished aerospace-quality aluminium.

In solid black, the Abel Spey Reel is priced at $500.

At 3.7ins in diameter and 1ins wide, the 8.5oz Abel Switch Reel has been engineered for 5-weight through 7-weight Spey lines.

“Used for steelhead or Alaska-size rainbows, a ‘switch’ outfit can satisfy an angler’s requirements whether fishing in a modest-size stream, larger river, salt estuary or lake,” said Don R. Swanson, President of Abel.

“It enables the fly fisherman to switch from single-handed to double-handed Spey casting which accounts for the style’s rapid growth in popularity.”
