Anyway back to the Alvey's.

Have my eye on a vintage Luderick reel, might start adding to what started out as dad's collection 😁

Tell us more!!! I'd love to see the reel you're talking about and possibly a story behind it.

I don’t have many Alveys but value the ones I do! I think my models are a 650C5, a 500A5(?), and a Blackfish reel. I also have what looks like an old Alvey copy. It’s embossed with “Queensland Fishing Tackle, Brisbane, Australia”. I must check my Mum’s garage for any of my grandfather’s gear, although it was probably thrown out years ago.

Not an Alvey but took some photos of an old Steelite sidecast this morning to show someone and thought I'd add here.

I have one of these 650 C3's in mint condition. They're a lovely reel.

Recently saw a 650 E series with a rosewood spool for sale, hesitated and missed it.

Missed out on this near mint 455 C12 7 Blackfish-Luderick reel last night because I fell asleep as the auction was ending & went for just $50.50

Gutted 😩

I saw that advertised.

I've never seen an Alvey blackfish reel with a drag system before.

Finally got round to taking a photos of my Alvey's.

First up, a couple of new reels - they'd be around 20 years old, a 650BC and a 600BC

Next, a 650 C5 and 651 C5 - great reels but but very heavy after a long session on the beach

Next, 2 timber reels that belonged to my dad, a 650 A3 and 600 C3

My favourite, a rosewood stain 650 A3 which nowadays I use the most out of the reels, perfect for the beach and nice balance mounted on a MT5144 rod with 10lb line

5" Club Trophy Special - this one is definitely in the retired category, I've got great memories  using it as a kid on Fraser Island circa 1970 on a cane rod with the reel held on by hose clamps.

cheers

steve
