About Us

Historical photo of Smitty

Founded in Long Beach 30 years ago, Smitty’s Belts is a family owned and operated business that is proud to provide American made quality products to the Sport Fishing industry. With decades of fishing and welding experience, my father, Smitty, founded the company with the goal of developing a belt and harness system that was comfortable, durable and reliable. As the next generation to be blessed with the opportunity to manufacture Smitty’s Belts products, we will continue to set the same goals for high quality products and wonderful customer service.  After all, when you have your dream fish on the line, only the best will do.
