Abel Fly Fishing Reels
The guts of all Abel reels are their unique "Stop-a-Sub" drag system. Most fish are lost at either the strike or the net. Abel's drag system has virtually no hesitation or stutter; so more fish are hooked and landed. It's as smooth as silk for a very good reason... to improve your chances of landing the fish of a lifetime.

Abel Knives
The Abel Blade knife is constructed of the finest components and materials: high carbon, high chrome, 154CM knife grade stainless steel. It has been hardened to 60RC; the handle or frame of the knife is cold finished 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum. For heat-treating, we use the world famous Paul Bos System. Made in the USA, this is one tough knife. Features a heavy-duty (removable) spring steel pocket clip and comes available in either a serrated blade or non-serrated blade. You can make your knife your own and choose from most of the same anodized fish patterns they offer on their reels.

Limited Edition Grateful Dead Reel
The first series of these Grateful Dead Reels sold out in less than 10 days! This next series will be sure to follow suit! Abel has created a new process to paint these reels that will dramatically speed up the production time. The Steal Your Face series reels were very labor intensive and are still being shipped... but this new series will ship within a few weeks time. Don't wait... these will be gone soon! TCO Fly Shop has partnered with Abel Reels, Rhino Entertainment and the Grateful Dead to officially authorized the use of the Dancing Bears logo on the coolest fly fishing reels in the industry. It's my pleasure to introduce you to the "Dancing Bears" Limited Edition Grateful Dead Reel. TCO Fly Shop is among the few exclusive dealers offering the purchase of this long awaited 2nd reel in the Grateful Dead Series of fly reels. This series is limited to 250 reels and will sell out fast! If you want one.. you better get in line NOW!

Abel Spey Fly Reels
To meet the demands of steelhead, salmon and other big water anglers using Spey techniques, we’ve come up with the definitive tool: the Abel Spey Reel. It has been engineered, machined and anodized meticulously as you would expect, but also created with a specific design and capacity aimed at long-rod anglers.

Abel Super Series Fly Reels
Large Arbor Models are heading into their fifth year - long enough to be on the winning end of a lot of big fish stories. The Expanded Large Arbor Super 7 is making its debut. Abel Large Arbor Super Series Reels have spools that are 100% interchangeable with spools of comparable-size standard Abel Big Game Reels. We call that InterchangeABELity. Example: with a Super 8 frame and Big Game #3 spare spool, you have created two distinctly different reels with different capacities and capabilities. The Super 8 holds an 8-weight line with 200 yards of 20# backing, the perfect weapon for bonefish, school stripers and reds; while the interchangeable #3 spool will hold a 12-weight line plus 250 yards of 30# backing for tarpon and sailfish. Nothing else can compare. No other reels have the ability to interchange spools and frame and no other has the Abel drag system that gives you the ability to Stop-a-Sub. All Super Series reels are ported using a "rounded oblong" design that maintains total strength and rigidity in the metal. They're light, yet retain all of Abel's traditional strength and integrity.

Abel Limited Edition Fly Reels
The Limited Edition Abel Reels in designs inspired by artists including James Prosek, Tim Borski and others with benefit to various environmental groups and causes. These incredible reels sell out quickly so act fast to support the cause and to buy a unique and exquisite collector piece!

Abel Creek Series Fly Reels
Whether fitted to your antique cane or 2003 Abel graphite, these beauties will look right at home. What's an Abel Creek? It's a modern large arbor trout reel with traditional values including an adjustable click drag. The narrow frame coupled with large arbor spool means fast line pick-up, fast retrieve and a classic, elegant look. Available individually or as a set.

Abel Anti Reverse Fly Reels
What's an Anti/Reverse Reel? The handle doesn't turn when line goes out . . . thus no lost fish when a whirling handle meets your knuckles. Great for surgeons, pianists, violinists, jewelers or others who need to protect their fingers and hands. Abel A/Rs are lightweight, utilize a unique ball bearing design, and have fewer moving parts than our competitors. Each A/R reel comes with its own finger wrench for removing the spool.

Abel TR Series Fly Reels
  • Originally designed in 1992, reintroduced in 2008.
  • Internally adjustable pawl click drag made from 303 heat treated stainless steel is locked in place by two small hex cam nuts and a spring retainer.
  • To adjust the incoming or outgoing tension, simply rotate the fully enclosed hex nuts with your fingertip.
  • Standard arbor design.
  • Classic round ventilation holes.
  • All reels available with a solid frame.
  • Made in the USA.

Abel Nipper
These anodized aluminum nippers have replaceable jaws that are machined out of premium grade stainless steel, then heat treated. They are saltwater resistant and engineered to Cut 7x - 100 lb mono and braid line.

Abel Hemostats
Abel is – and has always been – at the forefront of innovation and design in the flyfishing industry. Our new hemostats are another perfect example of our ingenuity. Unlike the standard hemostats that automatically lock the instant you close them, the new Abel Hybrid Hemostats feature a unique locking mechanism that only engages when you want it to. It utilizes a precision thumb lock on the top of the handle. Old fashioned “classic” hemostats can then be anything but simple to unlock – especially with cold, wet fingers while holding a slippery fish. But with the Hybrid Hemostat, it’s as easy as pulling a trigger to release the locking mechanism. A quick squeeze of the ergonomically designed handles or sliding back the sleek thumb lock is all that’s needed to unlock the jaws. The stainless steel jaws are not only designed for easy hook removal, but also pinching down even the tiniest of hook barbs – perfect for those who enjoy safely releasing a fish as much as catching it. These jaws are not only replaceable, but guaranteed for life. Visit your local Abel dealer and try a pair – it is the hemostat redefined.

Abel Zinger
Abel’s made-in-the-USA Zinger boasts stainless steel and 6061-T651 cold finished aerospace grade aluminum construction and is designed with the option to either attach to a vest using a screw mechanism or utilize the included “S” carabiner to clip it to a D-ring on a vest or sling pack. The 36-inch retracting cord is manufactured from a spectra-nylon blend with 40-pound test strength, ensuring an angler’s ability to reach wherever it is needed without breakage – the number one complaint with plastic “bargain” retractable spools.
