Get out and wander the world with it!

Imagine merging the tried and true Super Series drag design with the looks and feel of a Vaya, capable of handling the elements and brutal force imposed by saltwater species.   Meet the Rove!

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!

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

  • Partially ported frame for the perfect balance of sound, and visual appeal
  • Caged frame to prevent any possibility of line getting caught between the
  • frame and spool
  • High capacity, large arbor spool for single or two handed rods
  • Structurally integral machining design to withstand the demands of the
  • traveling angler
  • Laser engraved fresh and saltwater flies on reverse side of drag plate that

If you purchase backing, at the time of the reel [11/12 Size only] purchase, we will create a "Bimini Knot" to connect the backing to the fly line.

If you prefer a different knot you must include those specific details in the checkout note section. Please be aware this may delay the shipment of the reel.


Like any work of art, Abel Reels are hand painted master pieces and can vary ever so slightly from one beautiful reel to another.
Also, please take into consideration that colors can vary from mobile phones, computer monitors and cameras when viewing a custom fish graphic picture on our website.
At Fin & Fire, we try to represent the truest rendering of these reel colors and use reel graphics take directly from Abel Reel’s website.
