    VAYA: Spanish for ‘Go!’, as in go outside, go explore, go fishing!

    Crafted by avid Colorado anglers, the VAYA series debuts an all-new technical look and feel paired with outstanding performance. The partially-ported VAYA frame offers the unique combination of minimized weight, incredible rigidity, and just enough surface area to highlight Abel’s hand-anodized finishes

    The frame interior also features varying sets of CNC-milled fly patterns, relevant to each size of reel.

    The large-arbor spool features a precision-balanced, dual-pawl drag engagement design that eliminates the need for a counterweight. The spool’s mechanical incoming click compliments the audible, smooth feel of the outgoing drag. The carbon / stainless multi-disk drag system produces substantial resistance, while providing a wide range of adjustability for delicate tippet.

    VAYA: the new ‘go-to’ reel for everything from freshwater to light salt.

    • Partially-ported frame for the perfect balance of weight, sound, and visual appeal
    • Different sets of milled fly pattern silhouettes on interior of each frame relevant to the size of the reel
    • 5-disc alternating carbon/stainless steel drag stack
    • Large arbor for faster retrieve and reduced line memory
    • Quick-change spool design with proven O-ring release
    • Available in sizes 4/5, 5/6, 7/8
    • User convertible retrieval system
    • Made in USA

    Nice lightweight reel. Excellent machining. Not a lot of wow factor.. I kinda like my Ross Animas better even though it is heavier. Worth the 500???? maybe.

    Just do it

    I now have 3 Vayas in various colors. There is something special about quality reels and the Vaya is no exception. The anodizing helps keep a beautiful finish. The wild trout finish is awesome bang for the buck.

    This is a gorgeous reel. I feel a bit silly using equipment this aesthetically bombast, but it is beautiful nonetheless
