From durability to design, the Abel ROVE has quickly become a favorite for anglers and it’s not hard to see why. This workhorse of a reel has the capacity to fish two-hand rods, saltwater, and trout and trout spey. It’s your ultra-tough, ultra-reliable, high-capacity, beat-me-up adventure reel that will go where you want to go without feeling a need to have a backup reel in your limited carry-on space. But how can a reel this great get any better? Well, it’s all in the details.
ROVE: /rōv/ – to travel constantly without a fixed destination; wander.
Our ROVE reel has been an outstanding addition to our lineup since its introduction in the spring of 2022. We’ve been proud to see it win the IFTD Best of Show Saltwater Fly Reel Award, Gears Guide’s Best New Reel Award, and the overall Best of Show Consumer’s Choice Award at The Fly Fishing Show. Not too shabby of a collection this year.
The one constructive comment we received was that some of our customers love our original concept of several freshwater/saltwater flies engraved on the drag plate of all sizes of reels, and some of them don’t. A few anglers actually prefer to not have anything engraved. Our answer is to now offer multiple engraving options to our customers. Why not? We’re Abel.
