I'm delighted to say my very first fish to christen my new Aleka 10" 5# fly rod, a truly stunning and particularly beautifully conditioned and marked wild brown trout of some 4.07lbs!
For your interest, my background has been involved with top end high class fishery/ fish farm management and big game fishing for the last 30 years. So if I am allowed to say, I am particularly fussy and detailed about all I do, whether that is for my own fishing or more importantly, for my valued clients.
Firstly, I would like to say, a hearty congratulation to you and your staff for keeping me "up to speed" with the delivery of my new rod. That always makes a great impression and gives you complete peace of mind.
I must say I was very excited to receive my well protected package and my first impression on assembling my new rod was how light it was in my hand. The build and finish superb, I have been searching for quite some time for a four piece 10" 5# with a fighting butt...
