Gordon Laight, CanadaAbout ALEKA A4 Rod Outfit/Combos
Very impressed with Aleka. John was very helpful when I called to ask questions before placing my order. The A4 combo arrived in a very timely manner and I have to say that I was impressed when I opened the package and looked over my new rod, reel and landing net and was even more impressed when I got the combo out into the wild. The rod loads and casts with ease and picks up with little effort. Will be likely looking at another combo very shortly!

I was so pleased at the arrival of my fishing rod combo. Everything arrived intact and undamaged. I joined the rod sections together, seated the reel, and began winding the backing & line on to the reel. Once completed I checked the balance point……perfect. I used the rod last night and it performed flawlessly. My next purchase will be a spare spool. Keep up the good work .

I ordered an A4 9ft 6wt combo on a Sunday afternoon got it on Thursday put it together went down to the pond caught 3 bass with it in less than 15 minutes! Light weight, strong, sensitive, long cast! Very impressed very happy, looking forward to taking it out west. Thanks Aleka!

Although I have several 5 wt. fly rods I needed one that was much faster to take advantage of the heavier weight lines available today. The A4 that I purchased lifts the heavier lines off the water and loads the rod very quickly. I do not typically false cast so a quick load gets the job done for me. This rod does all I asked it to do and more. I am very pleased!

I have used many brands of fly rods for over 25 years and I like the looks and feel of the new Aleka six weight I recently purchased. I also purchased the reel to make the outfit complete.

I took a leap of faithy and recently purchased the A4, 8 wt. combo set from Aleka. I couldn't be more gratified with my purchase. The rod is beautifully made and exactly what I was looking for. I was surprised to receive the rod in such a short period of time less than a week to Arizona. Thanks for a great product. I am leaving in a week for Redfishing in Lower Laguna Madre, Texas and will send a photo of the rod in use.

Hello my name is Ryan Nolis and I bought a few rods from your website last summer. First off let me say I absolutely love your rods! I have fished Sage, Loomis and just about everything else and I prefer your rods. I live in Cooper Landing Alaska right on the Kenai River and fish between 6 and 7 days a week in the summer. I have also let a few of my guide buddies up here on the Kenai use my rods and they like them as well. I will keep spreading the word about you guys! Thank you, Ryan Nolis

Aleka Sports is new to me but may become my supplier of choice. They provided excellent service for my recent order. I hope the redfish in the bay at Panama City, FL perform as well when I use the 9 wt combo recently purchased. Now it is time to learn to tie a good Cathys Fleeing Crab imitation fly ( or purchase some from Aleka as they have a great looking one). J W French (Tellico Plains, Tennessee)

I have ordered a Aleka 5/6 wt rod reel combo not long ago, I have to say i am very happy with Aleka setup. I have owned many big name rods in the past. Aleka rods throw as well as all the big names on the market, they throw smooth with little effort, and recover quick when you make a mistake. I have to say i am very happy with my 5/6 wt setup. I am sure you would be too.

I would just like to say, I have ordered all my new fly fishing tackle form Aleka including an A4 Combo outfit. The advice given by John prior to ordering was first class and prompt. On receiving my tackle from Aleka, I have to say the finish and quality is first class what you would expect from a mid range to top of the range supplier. Since buying the tackle the weather has been appalling so I have not been able to use the outfit. I can't wait to try the rod out on the river Ribble.

I did want to say that I am new to fly fishing and when I had questions about what would be a good combo for beginners I email and got a responce fast with all the info I needed to make a purchase. My hats off to all involved. I got my combo one day earlier than expected and the quality of the A4 combo I got was great. I will be doing business with them again in the near future. Thanks Tony Ingram

I started fly fishing about 14 years ago as a teenager, which i had no clue what i was doing then and recently picked it up again last summer. After a few months of using the starter set up (that was 14 years old) and after I got tired of casting a rod that had the action of a wet noodle... I started looking for an upgrade. I was originally sold on the Orvis Clearwater outfit, but then I found Aleka! Which I am glad i did! I ordered the a4 8wt outfit, some flies and a fly box on a Wednesday night online. I received the packages on the following Monday. I am (and my wife) impressed the quality and workmanship of the rod and reel. It casts better than some other top name rods that I have tried in my quest for a new rod. I purchased the 8wt with intentions on using it for large mouth bass. The fast action rod allows me to pick up those big flies and turn it back over quickly with 1 or 2 double hauls to get it back out where I want it. A review I read on this rod said that it excelled at long range casts but not so well at short casts. I can tell you that it is great at short casts! The flies were great quality and the waterproof fly box is awesome espcially for the price! I plan on placing another order in the near future for a 5wt a8 outfit. Overall: very satisfied customer!

I was surprised my order came to my door step ahead of schedule. The ALEKA A4 Fly Rod color (brown) was better looking in person. I did some mock casting that day with my new rod and it performed great! I could actually cast further with it, I'm thinking it might be Aleka's fly line or it could be the rod never the less, I was happy. I took my new rod to my favorite spot that weekend. The A4 performed even better on the water.

Hello Fishing Friends
I've been looking for a 5wt rod for awhile, checking all of the different manufactures and seeing what they had to offer. I was sold on a Orvis combo, until I saw what Aleka was offering, and what type of company they are. So I ordered the A-4 combo!! For those of you that are hesitant about purchasing an Aleka Product DON'T BE! I was very impressed with the quality and finish of the rod, as well as having real eyelets not snake guides. It's light and powerful and balanced and they offer a "machined reel" with a well sealed drag (what are you kidding me!!) I thought the drag might be jerky but no way, nice and smooth! It cast's fantastic. It's easy to peel out 60ft of line. My first trip out with this combo I caught 2 good size bow's and a small white fish. Handled all including some semi-tired chum. I thought the chumy's would give the drag a run for its money, but with a few click's of the drag i could bring them to a
stop. That was awesome!!
Love My A-4
