Alvey 475B Blackfish 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.
Just like the blackfish that these reels have been designed for; Alvey knows that the fisherman can be just as fussy about the gear they use. Alvey knows that you want a reel that will be strong and reliable that will stand the test of time.
The Alvey 475B blackfish Reel is a centrepin reel with a twist it also incorporates Alvey’s Easy Cast System. The Alvey blackfish range of reels have been designed to be a durable lightweight reel and just like all Alvey’s, the Alvey 475B Blackfish Reel is so durable it can even be dunked in saltwater for a quick rinse.
Features and Benefits
NOTE: Tension cannot be applied to the spool of the 475B. If you require a tension control system and dual bushes order the Alvey 475TCS which we can specially obtain for you. Simply contact us.
So whatever style of float fishing you do? The Alvey 475B Blackfish Reel has it covered.
