Dare to be different

If you are looking for something unique for the holidays, and or just want to stand out from the crowd we specialize in custom Abel fly reels.

Abel Fly Reels have been the leading American made manufacturer of high-end custom fly reels for decades. Their simple, and proven drag systems are world tested by thousands of anglers and all of us at the Silver Bow have fished them for years as well. Whether freshwater or saltwater, Abel Reels has you covered.

Throughout the season we get numerous requests for custom graphics or custom colors on Abel reels and we are always more than happy to get them ordered up for folks. Whether it's simply a different color combo than stock black, or one of their unique fish pattern designs, there are many possibilities for a unique finish.

Abel has done a tremendous job with their "Build A Reel" section of their website, simply click on the different options and the reel image begins to customize to your specifications. The price also updates as you change options showing you the overall total.

On average the custom reels take 4-6 weeks to finish. Below are some examples of Abels that have made their way through the shop more recently.
