ALEKA retailer Ale & Fly has organized an important event on Sunday, February 3rd in Pedaso, near Ascoli in central Italy where visitors can see and cast the ALEKA fly rods. ALEKA will be represented at this event by our Italian pro team expert, Massimo Magliocco. Finally, you will see in Italy these fantastic rods, but not only ALELA rods, also reels and lines will be shown to the anglers, to see their high quality. In this event, Massimo along with three other instructors of the FFM Casting Italia school, will run demonstration casting with the Aleka rods, and everybody who would like to try the rods and have a short course with Massimo, will be welcome.

Review by product team, TROUT & SALMON (January 2013 issue, pick up a copy today!) "We tried the 8-weight. It has a middle-to-tip action, flexing more through the blank than the fastest rods. You can deliver a fly on the button without much effort." "We can’t fault the rods’ finish. Metallic-blue blanks and reliable anodized black reel seats. The full wells handles and fighting butts grow longer as line weight increases."

ALEKA A6 SALTWATER & PREDATOR RODS SERIES REVIEWED IN NEW GEAR GUIDE - TRIED & TESTED "THE A6 rods have been designed to catch big fish in fresh and salt water and there are four 9ft models in the range - 8wt, 9wt, 10wt and 12wt and I went for the lightest and the heaviest." "One of the first things I noticed is how thin the blanks are compared to what I would expect of rods in this weight category and they were certainly very light in the hand."

'RODS FOR LEADER-TO-HAND' Tackle Bag, review by Magnus Angus "These are both fine, rather refined rods. Both are at home fishing conventionally and both can handle modern ‘leader-to-hand’ fishing styles. Looking at the offer price these are exceptionally good value. (On balance I’d pick the #5 rod, slightly crisper, more nimble – and even now I’m wondering if I should have opted for the #4.)..."
