Live Auction Items:
Donor: Jim Collins
Specs: Model: Abel SDS 7/8 Reel Weight: 8.88 oz
Line + Yards of Backing: 7+260 20#
The Abel SDS takes all the power, reliability, and smoothness of its smaller Able counterparts and combines them in a larger package capable of taking on serious fresh and saltwater game fish - from steelhead to chinook, permit to tarpon. A carbon fiber and stainless steel multi-disc drag system is completely sealed from the elements, and yields an incredible range of drag pressure. This big power and control is great for fighting summer steelhead on lighter tippets and stopping hard fighting tarpon in their tracks. Not only is this reel made in the USA, it’s hand painted here as well. It features with a hand painted and anodized chrome steelhead finish for that extra wild steelhead mojo on the water. Don’t miss your shot at Abel’s finest steel reel!
Burkheimer’s Best Big Steelhead Rod
Donor: Kerry Burkheimer, C.F. Burkheimer Fly Rods
Specs: Model: 8134-4 Build: Presentation Length: 13’4”
Line Weight: 8 Rod Weight: 8.0 oz.
Experience the two-handed rod perfected with the C.F. Burkheimer 8134-4. Kerry has spent decades on the rivers of the Pacific Northwest. His passion for wild, native fish and the sport of fishing is evident when you pick up a C.F. Burkheimer rod. Each rod that leaves his shop is, to put it simply, beautiful. You only get that with hand-made rods and a master craftsman’s devotion.
If you spend time chasing large summer steelhead in British Columbia or winter fish in the lower 48 this 8134-4 is a must-have for your spey rod quiver. Featuring a hand-rolled blank, redwood burl reel seat, and exquisitely sculpted cork—all crafted within earshot of the mighty Columbia River— it adds up to a rod with soul.
