New Guy - and an Abel question

Hi All,

New member here from Vancouver Island. Am thinking about upgrading to an Abel No. 4 Big Game solid side plate reel for my 8/9 weight 13' rod, and am wondering if it will comfortably fit a 600 grain skagit max, running line and backing. Any thoughts you might have are very much appreciated.

Best,

C.

Welcome to the Speypages !!
I'm not familiar with the Abel #4, but a quick look at the Abel website shows a WF12 + 330 yards of #30 backing ... your good to go

Welcome aboard Cooter never enough Canucks around here , great area you live for this journey for sure

I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach
