BELLINGER “CLASSIC” FLY REEL

Beautiful 3” fly reel from the bench of Al Bellinger, Salem, Oregon.  This reel is unused, coming from the Bellinger estate.  Left hand or right hand, your choice.  Best for lines 4wt to 7wt.  The “Classic” was the third trout reel design from the Bellinger shop, after the Mark I and the Deluxe, so made during the 2010s.  The rims and foot are polished machined aluminum, side plates Delrin, accent pieces nickel silver.  The pillars are stainless, and screws are nickel silver.  The spool is machined aluminum fitted with the .050” Allen retaining screw on the axle and an adjustment screw in the axle under the oil cap.  This reel has the perforated head plate with matching perforations on the head plate side of the spool.  Bellinger reels combine innovative engineering with flawless fit and finish.  I have hard leather clamshell-style cases from A.E. Nelson available to fit this reel.
