Abu Garcia, Fishing Innovators
One of the leading brand in Fishing tackle in Europe, Abu Garcia, you would think they would have began making fishing tackle and fishing equipment. This is not the case though. Abu Garcia was started by Carl August Borgstrom. It was then called AB Urfabriken. They originally started as manufacturers for pocket watches, telephone timers and taxi meters. Borgstrom had a brilliant talent for light precision engineering. After WWII , the demand for taxi meters was not there anymore. So that is when Abu Garcia turned its attention to fishing tackle and fishing gear. Abu Garcia now develops the best precision reels all over the world. Abu Garcia received the honor “Purveyor To The Royal Swedish Court”, a distinction bestowed only to the best manufacturers for exceedingly high standards .
