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.

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
