Gorge Fly Shop and Abel Fly Reels are proud supporters of Casting for Recovery.
Abel and national breast cancer therapy and rehabilitation organization Casting for Recovery have teamed to fight the dreaded disease. Abel will produce a Casting for Recovery custom finish on Super Series 5N large arbor models with $100 per reel donated to the organization.
Casting for Recovery, a 501(c)3 non-profit, was founded in 1996 in Manchester, Vermont, the brainchild of a breast cancer reconstructive surgeon and a fly fisher.
The organization "provides an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly-fishing. Just as importantly, the retreats offer an opportunity to meet new friends, network, exchange information, and have fun. Abel reels are precision machined from 6061-T651 cold finished aerospace grade aluminum with Teflon® sealed bearings and utilize a cork drag system made entirely in the California factory. The Super 5N Large Arbor will handle both 5 and 6-weight lines.
The Abel Super Series 5N Large Arbor fly reel will feature the following:
Custom CFR purple with matching CFR pink handle, drag knob, and foot.
"To Fish is to Hope" custom engraved drag knob.
CFR logo and pink ribbon fish on the spool.
The reel with custom options would normally retail for $875, however the Casting for Recovery version is $700 of which $100 is tax deductible.
The CFR edition Abel reel is built on an as per order basis. We do not stock the reel and Abel does not build them until an order is in place for one. It should be safe to assume that a finished reel could be in your hands in approximately 30 days from time of order. International orders would take longer of course due to the extra shipping time and customs declarations.
