Abel Vaya Fly Reel // Larko Rainbow Trout Reel
Vaya Fly Reel
Larko Rainbow Trout Reel // Gloss Black Drag Knob // Walnut Handle
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.

Andrea Larko’s original Zentangle style took the fly fishing world by storm, and Abel was proud to be among the first manufacturers to feature her unique work. Our first collaboration consisted of her beautifully complex Bonefish and Brown Trout designs. Although a challenge for our Abel anodizing team to recreate, we all felt they were worth the effort to share with the world. A few years later we introduced her Tarpon, and it has since become one of our best selling finishes in our Artist lineup. This year, we are proud to announce two new graphics, and three laser-engraving options. The Brook Trout will be available on the TR, while the Rainbow Trout will be spotlighted on the VAYA series. A new Trout design, along with her Steelhead Duet and Permit are available as a laser-engraved design on any reel in the lineup.
