Perhaps more than any other anglers, trout anglers are often obsessed with the aesthetics of trout and nearly everything connected to the pursuit of them. For such anglers, the new Abel VAYA reel will certainly attract their attention.
The Abel VAYA reel has a beautiful native cutthroat finish with fly engravings that honor the beauty of cutties. Among features, this U.S.A.-made reel has a partially-ported to cut down on weight, a large arbor for quick retrieve and less line memory, and a “5-disc alternating carbon/stainless steel drag stack.”
The Abel VAYA reel comes in three sizes — 4/5, 5/6, and 7/8 — and will cost $495. To learn more about the new VAYA reel series from Abel, please click here.
