A flashlight with a beam bright enough to light a streamside mountain trail and sturdy enough to last a lifetime is now available from fly reel manufacturer Abel. The American-made and fully machined aerospace aluminum angler’s light is produced under contract with SureFire. The Abelight will retail for $250 in solid colors, and $300 with a fish graphic.
Tribal Fish Image
Jon Osiris, a Seattle-based artist, has created Pacific Northwest Native American-style fish images that are now being replicated on Abel reels. The images are reminiscent of tribal totem and tattoo art seen throughout Washington, British Columbia and Alaska. Osiris, who grew up camping and fishing in the Pacific Northwest, became “keenly interested in local tribal cultures and beliefs; this interest has grown to encompass the mythology, mysticism and collective knowledge of indigenous peoples worldwide.”
The Tribal Fish image can be added to any Abel Reel for $200.

A fully machined belt buckle in either aircraft quality aluminum or stainless steel. Available in solids or fish graphic colors. Solid colors have an MSRP of $125, Fish Graphic Belt Buckles retail for $175, and stainless steel models have an MSRP of $175.
