Be prepared for big gamefish with a spare spool for the Mooching Reel.
Coastal and Great Lakes-area anglers who target salmon, halibut or other deepwater gamefish have a new tool: the Abel Moocher
Founded in 1988, Abel enjoys the reputation of manufacturing the finest fly fishing reel in the industry. Using our patented cork drag, fully-machined frame and other components – the Moocher opens new sales outlets from Alaska down the Pacific coast.
Constructed with the patented "smooth as silk" cork drag system
- which allows for fighting a fish without stutter or hesitation - critical on a halibut, Chinook salmon or lake trout hell-bent for freedom.
Reels are fitted with an aluminum milled drag knob specifically designed for the demands required by the mooching angler.
- The spool is coupled with counterbalanced aluminum double handles to eliminate the slightest vibration during a fish’s long, high-speed run.
Machined entirely in the USA from prime grade metals,
Abel Moochers are anodized with an exclusive quarter-century old proven system of corrosion-resistant metallurgy developed by the reel manufacturer.Moochers are available in black, various solid colors and all hand painted fish graphic anodizing patterns.Made in the USA.
- the Abel Moocher utilizes a newly designed, but field test proven outgoing click mechanism with an increased audible sound for the mooching angler, and a super quick line retrieve.
