Abu Garcia For Life Superior. Renowned. Legendary. Each of these words defines Abu Garcia. From its inception on the banks of the Mörrum River in Svängsta, Sweden, Abu Garcia, then AB Urfabriken, has grown to become a reel powerhouse. Coveted by fisherman spanning the globe, it’s obvious that at Abu Garcia fishing is life, and life is fishing.
A couple of people raised some good points about the Charlie Russell photo posted today, so this is a good opportunity to say a little more about his work with these bears. Charlie rescued the bear in this photo and two others from a Russian zoo when they were very small cubs, and took them to a remote area of Russia called Kamchatka where he taught them the skills they needed to become independent wild bears.
