Coming Soon // The Abel Rove 2022

Ivan Orsic / Feb 9, 2022

Built off the backbone of the Abel Super Series, the new generation of Abel Fly Reels is the Abel Rove. Abel Reels' latest fly fishing reel is one of the most anticipated fly reels of the year. And for a good reason. Built from the ground up, the ROVE is a fully machined fly reel designed to be fished anywhere around the world. From swinging wet flies on the PNW, tossing terrestrial flies along a grassy bank to casting to laid up tarpon, the new ROVE can do it all. The brand new Abel Rove features a half ported and half solid frame built for longevity and durability. The Rove comes equipped with a high capacity arbor double pawls and a cork drag; the Abel Rove is a perfect combination of the old Abel Super Series and Abel Vaya, two tried and true Abel Fly Reels.

The modern upgrades found in the Abel Rove feature a modern design that allows for some amazing custom artwork that is laser etched. Above everything else, the engineering team at Abel Abel Rove Fly Reel was designed to give anglers a highly durable fly reel that can withstand just about any fly fishing situation you can throw at it. Already voted the Best Fly Reel of 2022 by Fly Fisherman Magazine, the Abel Rove Fly Reel features an ultra-tough and field-serviceable design that allows fly anglers to make reel repairs wherever their trips take them.

The brand new Abel Rove comes in several colors and reel weights. The Abel Rove will be hitting the Trouts shelves in March 2022! Stay tuned for the blog for more information on when these fly reels will arrive and hit the shelves! If you happen to know already the Abel Rove is the fly reel for you, give us a call at 303-733-1434 or message us over live chat so we can put one aside for you!

Abel Reels will be in the building if you happen to be at the Denver Fly Fishing Show this weekend. Make sure to swing by their booth 348 to put your hands on a new Abel Rove!

ROVE: /rōv/ - travel constantly without a fixed destination; wander.

Built to fish anywhere and everywhere, the ROVE series of reels was created to give anglers the ultimate peace of mind on the water regardless of conditions or location. The field-serviceable, proven Abel cork drag system along with the simplified design approach from our engineering team make this the reel that even guides in the Seychelles will trust in their arsenal.

This is not your delicate, ultralight, classically elegant reel for alpine meadow fishing. We already have that model in our lineup. This is 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. Get out and wander the world with it!
