    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 the USA

    Awesome reel!

    I love the colors, design, and overall feel of this reel. I have used it ever since I bought it 3 years ago and would never buy anything else.

    I love this reel. In fact I bought a plain block one and more recently I have saved up and bought myself another with a custom finish. There's nothing I can fault with the reel and it is the coolest looking reel in my collection. Its been tested against some feisty north island rainbow trout and not been found wanting. I can heartily recommend the Vaya.

    Just got back from a trip to Idaho with my new custom Vaya. Caught some amazing fish with the reel. It's an Abel, so you expect quality and you get it with the Vaya. I love the half port and exposed click and paw. The exposed hardware is more prone to get gravel or sand inside, so be aware of that.
