The Abel Vaya fly reel is the prestigious winner of "Best New Saltwater Fly Reel" at the IFTD Show in October 2019. Also awarded "Best New Fly Reel" in Fly Fisherman Magazine's 2020 Gear Guide. VAYA: Spanish for ‘Go!’, as in go outside, go explore, go fishing! The Abel Vaya 7/8 fly reel featured here for line weights 7-8. Featured here in the custom Olive color.

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.

Features:
• 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. The 7/8 reel features a Gotcha Bonefish Pattern and a Streamer Pattern.
• 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
• Spools available by request and sell for $371.25

Custom Olive is the color here which adds $100.00 to the base price of the reel. Plenty of other colors and patterns available as well.
