John is a very affable chap who can help those needing a custom flyrod
handcrafted with care.
He has helped me source an old Record Double Flyreel. Many thanks!
ABU and Garcia in USA have had a long co-operative
relationship. The only hitch was when Mitchell reels from France were being
already marked by Garcia in USA, so ABU had to look for the different
organization to market its fine ABU Cardinal Spinning reels. This was done by by
Zebco in USA.
site will appeal to many collectors who also collect Mitchell as well as ABU.
Wallace Carney labours hard with the same passion as I do here,
to create this high quality and continually developing website. Like this site,
it is not a commercial entity, despite looking like one, and it is also a Not
for Profit, benefit to all interested collectors creation. Please support his
endeavours to share.
Importer/Sole Agent for Everol

Grandson's Next Reel
This link is here because of the my
love of the ABU Admiral made by Everol in Italy 49 years ago. They
have exactly the same demanding ideals today as A.B.Urfabriken did
in their first 50 years! Keith has recently taken over as the sole
importer of Everol into the USA. Please consider these big game
reels. I have one and will be getting more to fill the size gap
where ABU no longer sells.

give serious consideration to joining this wonderful organization.
It does cost a little more for overseas postage (out of USA) but I
personally feel the helpful nature of all the voluntary workers, who
respond quickly to questions/request, as well as access to the
wonderful network of like minded collectors, make it very worthwhile
to join ORCA.
ABU Books Essential ABU Reading
Catalogs however, like
Tight lines and Napp och Nytt, are inexpensive for recent editions and
blindingly expensive for the oldest and rarest editions. I have 1966 to
present for the N&N but only about one third of the number for the Tight
I am presently trying to
research how many countries ABU was marketed in via their famous catalogs. I
would appreciate anyone who could forward details that may help me. I am
looking for names, dates and maybe a scanned image of the front page.
These free current edition catalogs are a wonderful resource for the beginning
fisher. The most expensive first edition N&N I saw changed hands recently for
nearly one thousand dollars at auction. Unfortunately 2005 will be the last of
A replacement yearly catalog will
be produced to target the present 4500 products.
ABU Garcia Yearbooks are also another source of information from the sixties
which incidentally I've just discovered. Anyone wanting to swap/trade some for
Tight Lines or Napp och Nytt (identical catalog but only Swedish version)?
