Product Description

Alvey 45BC General Purpose Fishing Reel

Alvey Reels have been synonymous with Australian fishing since the first Alvey reel was made in Queensland in 1920 by Charles Alvey. To this day Alvey reels are still made in Australia by the Alvey family and are manufactured to withstand the toughest of Aussie conditions.

The Alvey 45BC General Purpose Fishing Reel is a lightweight but extremely durable reel and has been upgraded to include an anti- reverse lever and clutch drag system for even greater line control. Virtually nothing can go wrong with this reel. It’s so robust that it can even be dunked in saltwater for a quick rinse.

The Alvey 45BC General Purpose Fishing Reel is perfect for the angler that needs a reel that can be used in a variety of fishing situations; from freshwater to the estuary or even as a light surf reel, whether your fishing for perch, whiting, bream, tommy ruff or luderick?

Latest Official statement from alvey below.  Please note there is a delay in shipment of Alvey reels… We have ordered hundreds and over multiple orders in the past week so all orders are expected to be filled. Just please bear with us.. Here is Alvey’s statement… Australia... if there was ever a time to stand up and be proud, now is the time! We cannot believe the volume of orders flooding in from retailers around the country as a result of your incredible loyalty towards our Aussie made Alvey Reels. Thank you!

For your benefit, we wish to advise that order levels are currently unprecedented and thank you all for your amazing support. This influx of sales has however cleaned out the physical 'stock on hand' and we are running the factory flat out to fill these orders! At this stage many orders may take a few weeks to reach your retailer so please go easy on them, it's beyond the retailers control.

We also want to advise that in its 'current form' Alvey Reels Australia cannot continue indefinitely but we are looking at all options moving forward. Thank you again for your wonderful support and we will do our utmost to supply your order requests.

Thank you,
Bruce Alvey
