I have been fly fishing for over 45 years. I have caught thousands of fish on every rod from bamboo, fiberglass, and now Aleka. I was not convinced that Aleka could add anything to my fishing. I am writing to tell you I am eating my hat. My first one was the A8 and it tightened my loop, and increased my distance. Still cannot believe how much this change my cast. The rod does not catch fish, it only delivers the fly where you want it. That is where your talent takes over. Aleka delivered on their promise. I have since bought the A4, and A3 versions. Aleka even upgraded an order to assure I received it promptly. Thank You Aleka. I have 17 fly rods of many popular brands. I am replacing them with Aleka. I am up to Five Aleka Rods. If you are like me and have doubt, just order. Aleka will convince you every time you go fishing. Brian Silver, Colorado USA

I recently purchased one of your A8 10ft #7 fly rods because one of my buddies let me cast his A8 last year steelheading and I was amazed with how well it loaded with heavy weight and through line. Long story short, I made the order and it arrived in less than a week. It arrived the day before my friends and I were heading on a fishing trip to wyoming where on a normal day you are casting into a 20 to 30 mile per hour wind. So I decided to bring the A8 to see how it would do, the rod was casting into the wind like a dream. It casted so well that I am sure you will sell 4 more rods to all of my crew. Great service, great product.

I am a part time trout fishing guide and was drawn to Aleka fly rods by the price originally. I am also a rod builder and got tired of clients abusing my custom built rods.I have found these rods to be absolutely fantastic. The quality is as good as I have found anywhere. I fish small streams and am a big fan of the 8ft 4wt. I cannot build a rod of this quality at this price. Thank you Aleka! Mike Beachy

I love my ALEKA fly rod and ALEKA fly reel. It is a great combination. I use it for Euro nymphing and have great success.

REVIEW OF THE ALEKA A8 FLY ROD. When I receive any fly fishing equipment in the mail, I am like a kid in a candy store. IT'S CHRISTMAS AT MY HOUSE!!! I recently received an Aleka A8 flyrod, 9 foot, 6 wt. Taking it out of the box, I found a sturdy rod tube and cloth rod sack, both well made. I pulled out the 4 pc rod. First, I looked at the bottom section: the reel seat, with a lovely walnut insert and well-fitting up-locking reel screw. The cork gripe felt very comfortable in my small hand. I noticed the cork, which did not have any defects occasionally found on even higher priced rods. Each section had the obligatory alignment dots and they were right on. I put the sections together and had to check the rod size and line wt as it felt too light. What a relief that a 6wt rod can feel so light in your hands, yet sturdy. Aleka's ARC Technology is fantastic. I assembled the rod, took one of my reels with a WF6F line out to the back yard of grass. A few false casts to get line out quickly telegraphed to me that this was one powerful rod for a 6wt. Without exaggeration, the line really took off and in short order 50 and 60 feet went out. Nice for Steelhead, which is one species I will target with this rod. Equally, short distances were easy to lay out. Later when casting on the River, roll casts were so easy to achieve with this rod. And water hauls were a breeze. I had enrolled in a Fly casting course for instructors recently and used the A8 in the class. It performed with elegant style and did everything I asked of it. From "pick up and lay down" to Double haul, it was flawless. Make no mistake, I am not a "Certified Casting Instructor" but wanted to learn how to teach beginners to fly cast. Well, I will use my A8 for all instructions. Well done, ALEKA for designing a rod that beginner or expert can cast with ease. As they say: "SPOT ON!" Scott from Washington
