If you can land a 30-35 kilos sailfish on an ALEKA A6 Fly Rod, you can certainly land a salmon, muskie, pike, bonefish or even tarpon! Ian Pinto from Fishzone Sportfishing - "Our guest Italian fly fisher using an ALEKA A6 Fly Rod 9'0" #12 on our fishing charter landed and safely release the sailfish, weighing approximately about 30 - 35 kilos in Kuala Rompin, Malaysia." A6 Fly Rod... arguably, the most exciting way to land a sailfish!

IN THE NET REVIEW 2018 - FLY FISHING & FLY TYING 'IT SIMPLY CASTS WELL - LOVELY' "ALEKA 3XT SERIES - TACKLE TESTER REVIEW! Review by Magnus Angus, Fly Fishing & Fly Tying "Typically I find I take a little time, a few casts, to get in tune with a rod, not this rod. I don't or didn't know this rod - not met it before - but it cast like a familiar rod from the get go. No quirks or tricks, no demand. I can't think of any time when I had to make accommodation for the Aleka - it simply casts well." "I can relax and concentrate on good form and timing: brining my line-hand up to the reel, let the back-cast get almost straight, stroke forwards smoothly - stop the rod to decide the loop width/shape. For casting, that combination is nothing short of excellent. Lovely. "

NEW GEAR GUIDE 2018 - TROUT FISHERMAN 'SMOOTH CASTER WITH HIDDEN POWER' "ALEKA 3XT SERIES - TACKLE TESTER'S CHOICE AWARD! Review by Robbie Winram, Trout Fisherman "The rod just took over, doing all the work for also had quite a hidden depth of power that I could call on, especially when trying to punch out a denser medium to fast sinking lines into cross or head-on winds. " "The 10ft 7wt is perfect for larger waters and can handle a good range of lines. The 9ft 5wt suits small stillwaters and top of the water sport. Very good price too."

"This guy doesn’t quite fit in the net! If you’re going to end the season on a high note, then why not with a nice fat 24 Rainbow. Who would have thought there was a fish this size in the Clark Fork. Let me tell you he was a handful on my Aleka 10’ 3wt….. A dream has to be hard enough that the outcome is never sure but not so hard that it can never be……"
