I am very impressed with my A8 10' 4wt and Aleka Sports. To start with, the rod was delivered ahead of the arrival date. This rod is very well built. I took the rod out to give it a test run and it performed flawlessly long line nymphing on the twenty five trout I brought to the net that day with two twenty inchers! I am a part-time guide in Western North Carolina and I would recommend this fly rod range to anyone! Justin Anderson

The many benefits spending a day on the water with a professional guide… ALEKA Pro Team Staff Member, Kim Tribe is a professional Guide and former Welsh River National Champion shares feedback from a recent client day on the water… Customer feedback and photograph of Mark Wormald. “I always look forward with great anticipation, to my day fly fishing on the Welsh rivers with Kim Tribe. I come away from our sessions with more knowledge of the sport and new skills for me to practice. Today was however exceptional. We had a fantastic day on the Usk, Kim helped me fine-tune my downstream dry technique as fish rose and later on helped me develop the high sticking nymphing tactic in fast pocket water. As a result of the latter I hooked and lost two good fish before having an amazing battle with a very lively fish. The fight must have lasted 15 minutes and took me down the river at least 50 yards. Thanks to Kim's expertise and attention, I finally landed a wonderfully marked pristine wild brownie of 19 inches. After years of fly fishing this was the Blue Ribband fishing moment for me. Thanks Kim, I'm still shaking now. Can't wait for our next session on the river”. Mark Wormald
