My name is Pete, and I live in Stockholm Sweden. I'm not sure if it is my real home yet ? I was actually born and breed in one of the best countries in the world.... New Zealand.
For the last 19 yrs I have been living here in Sweden and I have
been collecting Abu reels for about 15 years now.
The name Reel-Hunter came about after I was contacted by a Japanese man who was looking for an early model Record fishing reel to add to his collection. He had been wanting a contact in Sweden for
quite sometime, but was not sure if the Swedish people would understand his not so good English!
( For the RECORD and No pun intended, Swedish people from my experience are very capable of the English language... So never be afraid to ask a Swede to
speak or write in english !)
Anyway, after 2 weeks searching the reel he had been looking for, was on its way to Japan.
Since then I have managed to add 8 more Abu collectables to his collection.
Amazing how word spreads around, since this
first request, I have sent numerous Abu related items (reels and other Abu collectables) to various collectors around the world, all done by word and mouth.
So the name Reel-Hunter was not a difficult choice for me, as it relates to my passion
in the hunting down and collecting of these fine Swedish reels.
