Abel Announces Licensing Agreement with Fanatics and Major League Baseball for Reel and Nipper Collection


From Abel:

Abel, a leading manufacturer of USA made fly fishing equipment in Montrose, CO, is thrilled to announce its new licensing agreement with Fanatics and Major League Baseball (MLB) that will bring a unique collection of fly fishing reels and nippers featuring MLB team logos to fly fishing enthusiasts worldwide. Launching in February 2024 to coincide with spring training, this collaboration will allow fans to show their team spirit on the water like never before.

“We are incredibly excited to work with Fanatics and Major League Baseball,” said Jeff Patterson, Director of Sales at Mayfly Outdoors. “This agreement allows us to combine the passion for both fly fishing and baseball, creating truly unique products for fans of both sports. It’s really a dream come true for us as lifelong baseball fans and anglers here at our Colorado factory.”

Each reel will feature an MLB team logo laser engraved on the drag knob along with the team colors anodized on the reel. The reel and nipper collection will initially be available in eight teams: Yankees, Astros, Dodgers, Red Sox, Braves, Cardinals, Cubs and Rockies. Fans of these teams will have the opportunity to showcase their loyalty while enjoying the exceptional performance and craftsmanship that Abel Reels is renowned for. Additional MLB teams will also be added to the overall lineup in the future.

At launch, the reel collection will feature the SDF 5/6 and SDS 7/8 models, ensuring a wide range of fishing styles and preferences can be accommodated as well as a line cutting nipper for use anywhere on the water. The nipper engraved with an MLB team logo and anodized team colors is yet another way for anglers to represent their favorite team.

“We understand that fly fishing is not just a hobby, but a way of life for many,” added Patterson. “By combining their passion for fly fishing with the love for their favorite baseball teams, we’re providing a unique and personal experience for our customers.”
