From Us:
Whether you are looking for a reel for small stream adventures or a reel that will help you land a 20″ sea run, Abel’s TR’s are the ideal trout reel. A simple and reliable click-pawl drag gives you just enough drag support for no free spooling, but also gives you the ability to let fish run and play like they are meant to! And you gotta love the engraved may flies on the inside of the frame.

This is one of our favorite reels for fishing small and medium sized Alaskan trout, char and especially grayling. If you would like custom colors, let us know!

From Abel:
The return of a classic. The new Abel TR stays true to the roots of the original, but with a striking modern design and feel. The partial porting of the frame draws from the Abel lineage, and its unique features are as inventive as anything Abel has ever produced.

Crafted by our expert machinists in Montrose, Colorado, the TR is a lightweight masterpiece. An integrated precision-balanced clicker on the spool eliminates the need for a counterweight, yielding a clean look and retaining an iconic click-pawl sound. The pronounced palming rim is deliberately shaped to manually control drag pressure in all fishing conditions. The TR also features a large-arbor spool engineered to reduce line memory and increase retrieval rate. Machined stainless steel accents on both the frame and spool add that extra level of detail found only in an Abel reel.
