New Abel Reel - Super 5N

Super 5N Abel Reel
    From the moment I first picked up a fly rod I have had a desire to own one of these American made Abel Reels.  When it comes to quality and beauty there just isn't much around today that can hold a candle to the precision engineering that goes into the making of these reels.  In short, Abel makes some of the best fly fishing equipment available.  What better way to compliment my new bamboo rod.
    Well, Thanks to my success in this blogging artistic Fly fishing adventure, I have finally got my chance to own one.  After spending time drooling over Abels Reel Selection Page last week I settled on a beauty of a reel.
   It came this morning as I was finishing up a painting of a West-slope Cutthroat.  Taking the box from the FedEx delivery man, I tore into it like a kid on Christmas morning.  First chance I get I am going to take this beauty along with my Fall River Bamboo rod and give it one heck of a test on the waters of my native Chattooga River.
     For those of you that are in the market for a new fly reel or just like seeing this beauty in action, keep your eye out for my next post using this Abel Reel.  Just to wet your appetite a bit more I will also be adding a 'special' giveaway to accompany the next post.  Before you ask - No its not my new Abel Reel.  That baby is all mine but as a thank you to all of you that have supported me and my fly fishing art I will be giving away an original painting for one of you to hang on your wall.  Details will soon be coming your way soon.  I might even add a few other prizes in there as well so keep a look out.

You could giveaway that MFC reel that was paired with the Fall River Rod that I guess you won't be needing anymore.

I have heard great things about the Abels Reels. Should have some quality action on the bamboo stick.

That is an awesome looking reel. I hope it works as good as it looks.

Jay - You wish. honestly that reel was just to big for the bamboo but i have other plans for that.

Brookfield - It does!

Trail Outdoors - Honestly it is the best reel I own and just spooling the new line on it has got me excited to fish it.

Mark - It looks more red in the picture then it actually is. Its more of a bronze/red and it looks great next to my bamboo. cant wait to fish it!!

I agree, that reel is way too big for the bamboo. That's why I used my old L.L. Bean GQS with it the whole time I had it. I was only kidding about you giving the MFC away. I definitely want to see what you pair it up with when you do.
