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

The Alvey I'm not personally familiar with, I've only seen pictures. But a Centerpin reel would be a disaster as a fly reel. Most are designed to provide the least resistance possible when feeding line, They would overrun way to easily when stripping line while fly casting. Also most have no drag to speak off, even my vintage Hardy click and Pawls provide more initial drag pressure. And the good ones cost as much or more then a good fly reel.
