Thats right... This Gold Set (Salmo Salar 6500 ) was donated by Abu Garcia. It sold at a special auction back in 2015. There are only 2 sets made. The money raised from the auction will be used in a project to help save the salmon in the Baltic sea. In total 3 Million swedish crowns was raised at the auction. So this is probably the most expensive Abu fishing reel set in the entore world.
