Our mission statement at Abel is simple.

To design and build the best, most dependable gear in the world and give world class customer service.

Founded in 1980 as an aerospace machine shop, we quickly built our reputation on quality. Since 1988, we have been 100% dedicated to crafting fly fishing products and now have over three decades of experience as one of most decorated fishing tackle manufacturers in the world.

We are also 100% committed to customer satisfaction and service. This means that each and every product that leaves our shop must be the absolute best we can make it. We love to hear directly from you, so please contact us using the form below.
