Only a few days left...

to enter the Abel Reel-Art Contest.

CAMARILLO, Calif. – Artists – from first-time amateur to student, fly fishing guide or professional – may compete for the opportunity of designing the fish graphic finish of a new Abel Reel including recognition and write-up on the firm’s website and 2015 catalog. 

Two winners, fresh and saltwater species fish finish, will be awarded the Abel Reel of their choice, showcasing their own winning design, announced Jeff Patterson, director of sales of the California tackle manufacturer. There will also be one junior division winner for all artists ages 15 and under at the time of submission. 

“To enter the fly-fishing artist competition, submit all artwork and a signed release form available at to our email address no later than September 30, 2013,” said Patterson.

Abel will select the Finalists, up to 10 pieces of artwork in each category, and picture them on the company’s Facebook page. The Finalists in each category will be open for vote over a 2 month period during October and November, 2013. Each Facebook “like” will be considered one vote.

Fresh, saltwater, and junior division winning designs will then go into production, with the three winning artists each receiving a free reel of their choice.
