The Abel Creek Large Arbor Reel is ideal for fly
fishing in small mountain tributaries and fast
Eastern streams. All of the Abel Creek Series
Fly Reels are designed to balance well with
lightweight rods and line, which gives anglers
the advantage of large arbor spool design when
seeking out small fish.  While the Abel Creek
1N Large Arbor Reel is a classic click-and-pawl
drag reel that arrives ready for 2-to-3-weight, it
is also convertible for larger capacity and
bigger game.  With stunning looks and
legendary build quality this fly reel is a solid
investment.

One outdoor writer called the Abel Creek
...the classic trout reel for the 21st Century
and probably the definitive spring creek reel.
And Abel's files are filled with user comments:
Perfect for Pennsylvania spring creeks, Just
what I was looking for at Hot Creek and I
thought the days of a simple fly reel were
over.
