By now, most anglers are aware of the imposing and devastating threat to the Bristol Bay watershed. Sage, Redington, Rio have already offered sales proceeds from a rod/reel combo for the cause. Many companies are following suit. Here is an excerpt of what Abel is doing.

CAMARILLO, Calif. – Opponents of the potentially
environmentally devastating Pebble Mine in Alaska’s Bristol Bay
region will benefit from an Abel Super 5N trout reel, announced Jeff
Patterson, director of sales for the fishing tackle manufacturer.

Abel will produce a limited edition – numbered 1 to 100
– of the engraved reels in a specially anodized red color, symbolic
of both the area’s sockeye or red salmon and the “No Pebble Mine”
campaign, whose conduit to the fly fishing industry has been the
Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska.

The Sportsman’s Alliance will be given Reel #1 for sale,
raffle or auction and $200 per reel on all others sold, Patterson said.

The collectors’ edition Bristol Bay trout Abel reel to
benefit the Sportsman’s Alliance for Alaska is priced at $775. It is
available directly from the factory or through authorized Abel Dealers.
