DeYoung 25th Anniversary

A Quarter Century!  It’s hard to believe we’ve carried on our tradition of manufacturing our award winning products entirely in our USA factory for that amount of time. 

We wanted to create a commemorative finish to celebrate our classically engineered reel with our eye catching hand painted fish designs, so we called on our friend and Montana artist Derek DeYoung to create something completely different for us.   Derek’s talents resulted in an old school-looking black and gray, charcoal style trout flank painting that we’ve painstakingly reproduced for our 25th anniversary. 

The 25th anniversary DeYoung pattern is available on every model and size Abel reel, and shipped in a handcrafted wooden presentation box.  Each hand painted reel takes our artists approximately 8 hours to complete, but in the end, we think it’s worth it as a piece of machining and anodizing heirloom art that exemplifies our 25 years of providing anglers both the finest looking and functioning products in the flyfishing industry.
