Chuck Reynolds, United StatesAbout ALEKA A3 Fly Rod Series

I have finally been able to fish my 4wt A3 that I purchased a month or so ago. I have to say I am pleased with my purchase as it has performed flawlessly throwing both tandem indicator rigs as well as dries the past two weekends. I haven't found a rod at the price point that matches it quality feel. It also matches several higher priced rods step for step in ability to deliver quality presentations. This rod is quickly becoming a favorite. Paired with the A4 reel it is hard to beat. The A4 drag is smooth as silk. I have been able to land several 16 inch browns in relatively swift water and there was no problem controlling and landing the fish. I, without reservation, recommend the A3 rod and A4 reel. I am sitting down right now to figure out my next purchase. The set of flies that came along as a gift were also pretty nice.

Jeffrey Burroughs, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series

What a great fly rod! I recently purchased a 5wt 8'6" 4 piece A4 rod and I'm so glad I did. I put it to use this weekend on one of my favourite trout streams in Vermont. It is just wonderful. Casting was easy and so much more accurate than with my other rods. I was amazed at how precise I could present the fly. I caught 3 fish in the morning drifting nymphs as no hatch was coming off. I recommend this rod to anyone, well made, great accurate action and the delivery was quicker than promised. Check out Aleka A4 you won't be disappointed.

Rubin Hawkins, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series

I was on the hunt for low cost equipment to take to a remote location. I was willing to compromise on quality but I didn't have to. The website showed a good looking pole but the real thing is every bit as nice as much more expensive equipment. I was shocked at what my money got me. I could only find a couple of articles about this company so I assume it is new. I couldn't find any independent reviews. I took a chance because the price point/decription was great. Even if I had paid full price for the equipment, it would have still been a great value. I am looking forward to pulling in some Permit, Bonefish and Tarpon in a couple of weeks. Now I have great back up equipment also.

Richard Thompson, United StatesAbout ALEKA A3 Fly Rod Series

I recently received my A3 9' 4wt-4 piece rod. What a pleasant surprise it has been! I haven't had it on the water yet, but in casting sessions outdoors it's all that I had hoped it would be and is as advertised. There is hands down not another rod you can get at this price point that will equal the A3. I have compared it to the other rods in my quiver and the fit, finish, and castability are second to none. This rod obviously not only has good Engineering backing it up, but also had input from genuine fly casters in it's creation, a real joy to cast and so much fun I didn't want to put it down! Thanks ALEKA! Richard...Amarillo, Texas

Joseph Alba, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series

Firstly - Excellent shipping; I received my Rod and Fly Box well before a different company that is stateside mind you. The A4 Fly Rod distinguishes itself among the higher end distributors; Brilliant design and very well manufactured; and the case that comes with it comes in handy when traveling and saves a pretty penny to not have to purchase one. I went on a limb as there is not much talk about Aleka; but I am very glad I did and honestly wished I would have purchased all my gear through them. I will definitely shop here again and Highly recommend. -Thanks -Joseph

Josh Blythe, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series

Ordered a A4 5 weight four piece with the corresponding reel and line! Customer service from John was great. Prompt and helpful responses and info when needed. Received the equipment quickly, within 2 days of the sent response from John. Fished the Deschutes last Sunday with the new equipment and it all functioned well. Rod action is fast and delivers the fly over a distance and with accuracy! Fought a couple of decent fish on the reel and landed them too. Drag is smooth and solid! Line floats high and I like the beige color. Thanks John! Great customer service, great equipment at a great value! Josh Blythe

Donald Collins, United StatesAbout Stillwater Nymph Olive

Aleka Sports offers one of the best selections of lake patterns that I can find on-line. I primarily fish stillwaters and the quality of the flies is excellent. John is very receptive to suggestions and runs a first class operation.

Beverly Chester, United StatesAbout Seal Bugger Burnt Olive

Outstanding flies! I used the burnt olive sealbugger flyfishing, caught well over 20 trout and the fly was still in tack. No raveling or shredding. Outstanding quality!

Ian Hassett, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series

I bought the A4 rod, reel, and line as a set hoping that it would help me get my line "out there" better, and I was right. This has to be the best value in a fly rod right now. It has control and precision with power, grace, and looks. To say I am happy with it is a bit of an understatement. My only regret is that I didn't pick up a spare reel to go with it, and I can still do that. It's a great fly combo and an even better price.

Jarrett Griffin, United StatesAbout ALEKA A4 Fly Rod Series

I recently purchased an A4 6wt for sea run cutthroat in Puget Sound, and was extremely impressed with the power in my hands! Wind in the Hood Canal can be fierce, and this rod will dominate any wind there! I'd recommend Aleka without hesitation. Jerry Griffin Leavenworth, WA

Aaron Deaver, United StatesAbout ALEKA A3 Fly Rod Series

John and all the Aleka staff, The rod arrived in a timely fashion and the packaging was excellent! I have not had a chance to use it out on the river yet but have been 'that guy' out in the yard waving around a 9ft rod to feel it out, haha. The action feels great and I do believe this will be my go to rod for any steelies or big bass. Now all I need to do is find a job so I can purchase more of your gear! Aaron
