    The Thomas & Thomas Avantt 864-4 fly rod combo features the incredibly versatile Avantt rod, perfectly balanced with the beautiful Abel Vaya fly reel, and loaded with a premium RIO Elite Gold fly line, backing, and tapered leader. All Thomas & Thomas combos are shipped properly rigged and ready to fish.

    The Thomas & Thomas Avantt 864-4 is the ultimate small creek and stream fly rod when targeting big trout. With unmatched line control and touch, the Avantt 864-4 fly rod prides itself as one of the most delicate fly rods ever made. Laying out a dry fly to big rising brown trout requires a gentle precise cast and there is no doubt that the  Avnatt 864-4 is the rod of choice when these picky fish start boiling at the surface. The Thomas & Thomas Avantt series is forced to approach freshwater fly rod design in a brand-new way. Featuring the proprietary StratoThermo Resin giving such an incredible strength and vibration dampening characteristics. The result, more line control than ever with ultra-low swing weight and lightning-fast recovery. The Avantt fly rods truly come alive in the hand of any angler. Extremely accurate at close range for a precise command of the fly with delicate touch. Longer casts reveal surprising power and high line speeds with magnificent tight loops and revolutionary line control.

    The Avantt is the flagship freshwater rod series from Thomas & Thomas, considered by many to be one of the finest all-purpose trout fly rods ever made. The Avantt is a delightful blend of smooth power and lighting fast recovery, and tight loops delivered effortlessly. These rods are ultra responsive with a lively feel that’s extremely light in hand. The extremely versatile Avantt excels in a wide variety of situations, from gently dropping in tiny dry flies to swinging bulky streamers, and everything in between. Avantt is the perfect blend of power, feel, sensitivity, and finesse that excels as a one-rod-does-it-all for trout and bass.

    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

    The Elite RIO Gold has a taper design that gives incredible loop stability at distance and a front taper that delivers perfect presentation of flies between sizes #2 and #22. With a long head and back taper this line is an excellent all around fly line on rivers and lakes when long casts and complete line control are required. This line is built with RIO's low-stretch ConnectCore Plus, resulting in exceptionally smooth, durable fly lines, with the added benefits of incredible levels of sensitivity when casting and fishing, and providing enhanced detection of takes, faster hook sets, and far greater control when playing a fish. In addition, this line is built with SlickCast, RIO's proprietary coating technology, creating the slickest, most durable fly lines on the market. Lab tests show that lines built with SlickCast have the least amount of friction ever measured in a fly line.
