After 20 years, Alice & I are retiring from owning & managing Genuine Bellinger, INC & Bellinger Reel Seats. Mike McFarland of McFarland Rod Company will take over ownership & management and will relocate the business to his hometown of Bellwood, PA. During this transition period, customers may continue to order a limited number of items through this website:
- Planing forms
- Depth Gauges
- Depth Gauge Standards
- Nickel silver ferrules & winding checks
- Pearsall's silk & binding thread

Once Mike has what he needs set up & in place, customers will be directed to the new Bellinger website & ordering platform. Until then, we ask for your patience & continued support.

You may contact Mike at mike@mcfarlandrods.com if you have any questions &/or you may also still email thru this website or to info@geniunebellinger.com

We'd like to thank our customers & friends for a great 20 years. Bellinger customers are the best & we've appreciated the opportunity to work with you.
– Alice & Chet Croco
