Hand painted Abel reels. Whoa! Derek DeYoungs work. Whoa! Combined? Double whoa!

We have covered Derek DeYoung's beautiful art in our series about fishy art, and we have always been big fans of Abel's hand painted reels - particularly the ones with the most exquisite fish patterns - brookie, steelhead, roosterfish and much more.

What do you get if you combine the two?

Even more exquisite reels. Watch out for the DeYoung Signature series from Abel. In 2009 you can order Derek's art on any Abel reel for a mere few hundred dollars extra.

So cool!
