    Oh Wes, you are the vermin guru

    We are not worthy

    As far as camo abels are concerned, I wouldn't touch them with a 20' barge pole, you can catch some weird diseases from them and end up loving mactuna to the point of kissing them

    You must be confusing me with Duckbill - The Frigate Fornicator # .

    I've caught a Longtail with most of my Abels.

    Super 13

    Super 12

    Big Game 4 Narrow

    Super 11 - a favourite

    Super 8

    Big Game 3 Narrow

    Super 6

    Super 5

    Just need to find a few Longtails to blood the BG Pt.5 and S2.


    I know you own your very own Camo Abel.

    Here you are using my "Precious, Precious" Super 11

    Bluntly over priced, you get the same value, good manufacture, like USA, sealed cork drag and LA spool, with a Nautilus, at a lot less money.
    Have a chat to Chris at Fly World.
    The fancy camo finish on reels is nothing to do with fly fishing or the the performance, it's just another costly gimmick.

    Good choice going with the Abel. I don't own one, but they are very awesome reels.
    Tibors are everybodies favorites down here in Florida, USA. They are also fantastic reels. Not really sure about their availability in Australia, but they may be something for you guys to consider in the future. I own a Ross reel & a Van Staal, which are also top notch. With the Van Staal you can purchase another another large spool, so you potentially have 2 reels for the price of one really great one. Nice option eh.
