Abel - Classic Fly Reel
For sale here is an Abel "Classic" fly reel in very good used condition. A short-lived model for Abel, the Classic was the smallest in the series with their "Spey" and "Switch" reels. Frame diameter is 3.3" with a spool width of 0.80". A fully machined reel with strong adjustable click and pawl drag, the Classic incorporates vintage design with the modern fit and finish that Abel is known for. The reel has some cosmetic wear from use, but remains mechanically solid and the clicker sounds great. Can be fished LHW or RHW. Abel marketed this reel for 3/4/5wt fishing, but it looks like it would handle a 6wt as well. Sold in the original pouch, loaded with backing.
