Abu Garcia Fishing Gear For Sale - See our range further below.
Swedish fishing tackle giant ABU Garcia has long been an integral part of Australian fishing. For many Aussies, our first fish was caught on an ABU rod and reel. Their range of high quality entry level fishing gear is outstanding, which is perfect for Australians, because getting the family out on the water wetting a line for less is also an integral part of Australian fishing.
It’s worth considering; ABU Garcia founder Carl August Borgström was a watchmaker before he began his famous tackle brand. It’s a watchmaker’s precision that goes into the engineering of ABU products. Their full range, entry level to the top shelf, are examples of finely tuned rods and reels, finely tuned tackle, which has paved the way for ABU Garcia to be a global fishing tackle giant. For many anglers, their top end baitcasters are always first choice. For others, the sleek yet aggressive spin reel designs, with matching pedigree performance evoke undying loyalty. Whatever gear you are looking for, fishing tackle shop has a great range of ABU Garcia Fishing Gear for sale below from baitcasters, spinning reels through to rods, lures and tackle.

ABU GARCIA SPIN REELS
Traditionally Abu Garcia spin reels have been at the high-end price point. However, now and here at Fishing Tackle Shop we have a wide range of Abu Spin reels for sale from their high end revo range, some which feature some amazing technology such as Salt Shield bearings right through to their range of intermediate models that will suit most angler’s budgets.
Here in Australia the main target audience for Abu reels are the inshore angler and those that do a little bit of light offshore. In most cases, the sizing range Abu provides caters from a 10 or 20 (1000-2000) through to around a 60/6000 size and we will touch a bit on reel sizing directly below.
First, comes the 10 or 1000 size. This reel model is the smallest in its class and is specifically tailored to finesse fishing. Basically, we mean fishing light, generally with a 3-6lb line.
Stepping it up a size we head to the 20, 25, 30, 2000, 2500 or 300 sizes. These sizes are our bestselling size class by far in terms of an ideal all-round estuary, lake and versatile light class reel for anglers hunting Trout and Bass in the fresh, Bream, Whiting and Flathead throughout the salty inshore waters.
Getting larger again we head to our 40, 50, 4000 or 5000 size range. In this class, you are covered for some pretty heavy inshore fishing such as targeting for murray cod, barramundi or mulloway but a reel in this size class makes a great light reel for light surf, rock or boat fishing out on the reefs too.
Lastly, the 6000 Size Abu reel is perfect for offshore work, heavy inshore work and slightly heavier angling technique from the surf or rock platforms. It’s a reel that holds a more significant volume of line designed to assist in targeting your regular and larger than average table fish.
ABU GARCIA BAICASTER AND OVERHEAD REELS
For the overhead fans, the ABU Garcia Ambassadeur reels are tough to beat at this price bracket right across brands. The classic drum style reel features level wind and an ultra-smooth carbon matrix drag. It holds plenty of drag for testing it out against smaller blue water species for sport, but is ideal for hunting big Barra and Mulloway. Lightweight construction yet built to handle our toughest conditions and predatory fish.
If you are after precision and attention to detail like no other baitcaster reel in its class the the Revo baitcaster series ups the ante significantly. The design is uncompromising, delivering only the best performance. Abu Garcia Baitcaster reels are put to the test thoroughly, both in the lab and out on the water with anglers putting the reels through their paces before they reach the retail shelves.
Entry level anglers that are just starting out are not forgotten. Abu Garcia have a range of entry level models in their baitcast range such as the Max series. From the very best to the baitcaster reel for entry level anglers Abu Garcia has you covered.
Baitcasters are popular in Australia for those that chase barramundi and murray cod as well as a range of other inshore fish where casting accuracy is an important factor in your angling technique. Baitcasters traditionally don’t cast too far and are designed to fish better in tight snaggy territory which is where the fish reside.
ABU GARCIA RODS

ABOUT ABU GARCIA
The first ABU reel was manufactured in 1941. Just 11 years later the Ambassadeur reel was manufactured. One could argue successfully that the humble, yet now very famous, Ambassadeur reel would be the reel to take a small manufacturing operation into one of the most influential fishing tackle manufactures in the world. By 1965 another name we take for granted hit the market, the Cardinal. By 1977 ABU had its own museum.
In the early days ABU cut its teeth on manufacturing precision equipment such as pocket watches, telephone timers and taxi meters. It’s nearly 100 years later since the company and this precession has remained one of the hallmarks of ABU Garcia. With the stunning Veritas range now bearing the flag for ABU, we can only imagine what might come next. ABU Garcia Fishing Gear, pedigree and class at every price level.
