Patagonia visits Abel Reels

Author: Travis
Everything went fantastic down in So Cal. The shoot went off phenomenally, with everyone's help at Abel. Thanks to all for putting up with the camera! Wednesday a couple of important guests dropped by Abel to take the factory tour, meet up with yours truly and talk about what's up with the film. Bart Bonime, head of fly fishing for Patagonia and founding father of Patagonia and environmental icon, Yvon Chouinard dropped by Abel reels. Abel is actually just a couple of miles down the Ventura Highway from Patagonia. Both Bart and YC seemed pretty impressed by all the hand work that goes into Abel's manufacturing process. But it was Abel's new nippers that really seemed to catch YC's eye! Stay tuned for more news regarding Yvon Chouinard's involvement in Spring Creek: Ranchers, Anglers, Water and Trout. Pictured from the left, Abel Reels President and all around cool dude, Don Swanson... Abel's Chief Designer and V.P. Glen Krapff, Head of Fly Fishing and a mean BBQ artist Bart Bonime and of course the legend himself, YC. More Later T>
