Abel VAYA

Abel VAYA

Vaya is the Spanish word for “Go!” as in: Go fly fishing with this reel! Crafted by avid Colorado anglers, the VAYA series features a 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 pattern artwork, 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 is said to be the new ‘go-to’ reel for everything from freshwater to light salt. Available in 4/5, 5/6, and 7/8 sizes. Retail: $495. Abelreels.com
