Abel Vaya reels are premium reels made by fisherman for fisherman in Colorado state. These fully machined beauties have one of the smoothest drag systems out there, allowing you to finely tune the drag to protect the lightest of tippets. Abel Vaya reels are lightweight, strong, and great for trout to light saltwater use. On the interior of the reel frame is two beautifully CNC milled fly patterns that look awesome! The Vaya reels have a large arbor design for fast line pickup and feature a beautiful rosewood handle.

All Abel Vaya Reels come with a very nice Cordura reel pouch.

The options shown are what we currently have in stock. If you would like a custom reel painted by one of their signature artists, or in one of their hand crafted finishes please give us a call at 425-742-2402 or contact us via email to place a special order.

Here is what Abel has to say about their Vaya Reels:

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.
