Casting for Recovery, a 501(c)3 non-profit, was founded in 1996 in Manchester, Vermont, the brainchild of a breast cancer reconstructive surgeon and a fly fisher. The organization “provides an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly-fishing. Just as importantly, the retreats offer an opportunity to meet new friends, network, exchange information, and have fun. Abel reels are precision machined from 6061-T651 cold finished aerospace grade aluminum with Teflon® sealed bearings and utilize a cork drag system made entirely in the California factory. The Super 5N Large Arbor will handle both 5 and 6-weight lines. The Abel Super Series 5N Large Arbor fly reel will feature the following:
- Custom CFR purple with matching CFR pink handle, drag knob, and foot.
- “To Fish is to Hope” custom engraved drag knob.
- CFR logo and pink ribbon fish on the spool.
The reel with custom options would normally retail for $875, however the Casting for Recovery version is $700 of which $100 is tax deductible.[information]
