I am looking for reel bags, in which to individually store several fly reels, both on and off rods. Cases in point:
An Emery reel came with a canvas drawstring bag. Totally incapable of shielding the reel from weather or occasional boat rash.
The Catino reels came with nothing. (at least mine didn't)
Even the old Fin Nors (wedding cakes) did not have bags suitable for taking on a boat. The zippers melted in salt air. Mine are useless and have been for decades.
To date, by far my favorite reel bag is Abel's. They are made of a quilted nylon that will keep out salt spray, as well as protect against the normal bumps and overall abrasion of rod rack storage. There are NO zippers....the velcro patches close nicely over the bag, with the reel on a rod or off. OH....Penn International fly reels come in this kind of bag also.
I have been researching and to date found nothing. Metal zippered leather bags is as close as I can get. Needless to say, no way.
Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Soon I'll be contacting Abel directly, but I do not want to put much faith in that.
