View Full Version : Got my Alvey

Hello from Chicago. Well, I got my Alvey the other day, a 6000BCV and a 10'6" rod. I had it out today for the first time and seemed to get the hang of it real quick. I'm impressed with its performance, and its going to be perfect for its intended use. I feel pretty good after 3 hours of cast and retrieve, no fish though. Unfortunately the Chinook season is over, but the steelheads and lake trout are making their way in, so there's still plenty of good fishing before the ice comes. Thanks to all who offered me "Alvey advice" a couple of weeks ago. I'm very satisfied with it. Cheers, Scottie

best of luck with the alvey. No offence but I'm sure it will still be there well after you go. Old Australian saying "it's the Alvey reel that fills the creel"
