Innovation, tradition and value are the hallmarks of this year’s best new fly-fishing gear
The TR represents the return to a classic fly-reel style, featuring Abel’s famous partially ported frame, along with a large arbor, click-pawl drag and quick-release spool. And since there are just 21 machined parts, dependability is assured. The TR is available in sizes 2/3 or 4/5, and in more than 70 custom finishes; there are even milled silhouettes of a stonefly, caddisfly and mayfly inside the frame. It’s a truly beautiful, high-performance reel.
