If you’re after a rod for targeting Australian salmon, tailor and mulloway off the beach, and salmon, tailor, mulloway, snapper, kingfish, bonito and drummer off the rocks, then the 13-feet 6-inch, 5-10 kilo line-rating Alvey Surf Rod would be ideal.
This high grade fibreglass 2-piece blank has quality fittings and a nice tip action. It’ll allow you to cast baits as small as half pilchards, cunje, large blue tailed prawns and red crabs. The rod comes complete with a large 40mm-high mount striper guide to ensure a long-distance cast.
This is a quality surf rod with great casing action, and would match up nicely with either a model 650, 6500 or 700 series Alvey reel.
