It has remained a family business and is currently under the direction of Bruce and Glenn Alvey, the great grandsons of Charles Alvey. Alvey reels continue to outperform other types of reels by sticking with a simple and efficient design that was done right the first time. Alvey side casts reels are designed for distance casting with little practice, using simple casting techniques. Using the casting instructions presented on these web pages, Charles Alvey attained a record cast of 671 feet using a 2 ounce casting weight. All Alvey Reels are ruggedly built to withstand the harsh effects of fine beach sand and saltwater corrosion and will give you a lifetime of fishing pleasure.

E. A. Brandner Distributors has been offering wholesale and retail sales and service for Alvey Reels in the United States since 1980. We first tried Alvey reels in the 1970’s and then had the great opportunity to meet and fish with Jack Alvey, grandson of the founder of Alvey Reels Australia, Charles Alvey. Needless to say, we were hooked and have since been dedicated to the Alvey system of fishing tackle and utilize them every opportunity we get to be on the water. Whether it be a small stream or the ocean surf. The products illustrated on these web pages are those that have proven to be well suited for the many fishing opportunities in America. However, we are always willing to provide any Alvey reel or accessory from the main catalog that draws your interest and will be happy to accept special orders. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about Alvey fishing tackle.
