Alvey Reels Australia
Made in Australia - Sold to the World.

Surf fishing range

Thanks to the extremely reliable, effective construction of all Alvey reels they have become a tradition on many Australian beaches. It doesn't matter which Alvey reel you decide to use, you are assured that if you can take it, your reel can too. When surf fishing it is almost impossible to keep sand out of your reel. Alvey reels are in fact so tough we recommend dunking them in the surf for a quick rinse should the need arise. Simply wash it with fresh water before storage.

When fishing in the surf with rods over 4 metres (12 feet) it is important to have comfortable gear to use. The Alvey set up allows you to fish with your arms in a relaxed position and gives long accurate casts making your outing more enjoyable.

The only essential requirement in sidecast angling is that an ordinary small free running swivel be placed above your rig. Any type of rig, spinner or float can be used below the swivel, but nothing on or attached to the line above it. In this position the swivel will, for all practical purposes, keep your line free of twist from any cause whatsoever. The use of too large a swivel is often another cause of line twist, the swivel being too heavy for the light line to turn.

Model No. Spool Diameter Line Capacity, guide only, heavier or lighter line can be used to suit your fishing. Weight
