abel_prosek_7_lg.jpg
A limited edition Abel Creek model #1 large arbor fly reel including an interchangeable standard arbor spare spool in a golden trout design inspired by artist and conservationist James Prosek, will benefit the conservation organization California Trout, announced Don R. Swanson, president of the tackle manufacturer.

Only 100 of the individually colored and anodized reels and extra spools will be produced. Reels will be accompanied by a signed and numbered 11x14-inch gicleθ print of a golden trout by Prosek. The print number will correspond to the reel number.

Reel number one and gicleθ print number one were donated to CalTrout by Abel. The reel and print were sold at an auction with all proceeds to the conservation organization.

The Abel Creek model #1 reel precision machined for 2- and 3-weight fly lines is one in a series of Prosek-inspired works produced to benefit conservation causes by Abel. The interchangeable standard arbor spare spool is designed for 4-, 5- and 6-weight lines. This series of Abel/Prosek reels has become the most collectable fishing tackle in recent memory, said Swanson.

Golden trout are one of the most environmentally threatened species. Once called the Volcano Creek Golden Trout, it was designated as the State Fish by the California Legislature in 1947. Their range encompasses approximately 120 miles of stream habitat found mostly within the Golden Trout Wilderness in the Sierra range.

CalTrout has been instrumental in working on behalf of the golden trout to ensure its survival as a species.

The American-made Abel Creek is machined from cold finished 6061-T aircraft quality aluminum. Reels are then precision machined (not die cast) on C.N.C. lathes and mills.

Prosek, who has authored and/or illustrated Trout an Illustrated History, Trout of the World, Joe and Me, Fly-Fishing the 41st Parallel, Early Love and Brook Trout and a children's book, A Good Day's Fishing, has been called the James Audubon of fish.

His golden trout giclee print is an individually produced high resolution reproduction. The collectors edition golden trout Abel Creek reel with spare standard arbor spool is priced at $895.

These finishes are still available on any Super Series or Big Game reels/spools for the standard prices.
