Default Re: Use Center Pin Reel or Alvey Reel as a Fly Reel

I have been using alveys for years, the important ting is to incorporate a swivel before the leader. In ny you are allowed 4 foot from swivel to fly or bait. they can be used just like a center pinner. The nice thing about an Alvey is you can drop them in sand and just rinse off and they keep going. made to handle LARGE fish. I would head to Padre Island and do some 300 yd. casting. They are great for longggg distance. I use mine on the beach all the time. you can get the c4 model for around 50.00 bucks.
