    Trade Up Program


    Trade Up Program

    OOPS - This page is under construction... excuse the layout. 5.1.15

    Trade Up Program
    Why trade in when you can Trade Up?

    Want that new fly rod, don't have the beans to pay up? Or maybe your like most anglers - you have a ton of equipment already and you can't justify the price of the latest, top shelf gear... Well, The Gorge Fly Shop would like to have your used gear and give you store credit towards purchasing the gear that you really need.

    ***Please contact us by Email about all initial inquiries or questions about this program.***


    We give you an upfront dollar amount. This credit would then be used towards a new purchase. Allow 1 week turn-around from date that we receive the product(s).
    We will also buy used gear outright and send you a check. No purchase will be necessary. Allow for 1 week turn-around from the date we receive product(s).
    ***Items opted for outright sale to the Gorge Fly Shop
    may be valued at a lower price***

    We prefer to receive fly rods and reels for trade-in, but we will consider any other fly fishing gear that you wish to sell. (Gorge Fly Shop reserves the right to refuse anything for any reason)
    Items must have a substantial resale value; we will not accept poor quality items with very low resale.

    • Customer is responsible for shipping items to us (We recommend a reliable insured method)
    • Customer must completely fill out a Trade-in form.
    • We will contact you and decide on an appropriate value. 
    • If no decision can be reached, customer will be responsible for the actual return shipping cost.
    We will also buy your used gear outright and send you a check. Only Factory Built Rods will be considered

    • Used waders, used boots, used fly lines, heavily worn or abused items & anything that we may suspect as being stolen.
    • Keep in mind that used gear is only worth what the current market will pay regardless of what you initially paid for the item(s).
    • We recommend contacting us for an estimated value of your equipment before sending it in to get reviewed.
    • Final determined value can only be made upon inspection of your equipment.
    Custom built rods will not be accepted.

    Contact Us First: Send us an email to Type Trade Up Program in the email’s subject header. Please list your items and their conditions (scratches, fading etc…) Be sure to include whether fly rods and reels are complete with their original socks, tubes and/or cases. Let us know if you are interested in trading in your items for store credit or if you would prefer an outright sale of your items to GFS. (If trade-in, what type of products are you interested in purchasing?) This email should also include your full name and your contact information.
    We will then contact you with rough price quotes for your items.
    Once you have received rough price quotes from us and you decide to move forward, print out the trade-in form and fill it out completely. Mail the below form along with your items to: Gorge Fly Shop, Att: Trade-In Program 201 Oak St. Hood River, Or 97031. Please consider using an insured method that allows for tracking like UPS or Fedex.

    Once we receive your gear and the TRADE UP FORM for final review, we will do one of the following, depending on which program you choose:

    A: Give you an immediate trade-in credit towards fly shop purchase(s)
    B: Mail you a check for the outright sale of your items to the Gorge Fly Shop.

    Fill in the form completely and send it along with your item(s). FORM BELOW
    Free line offers are not good with any trade in deals.
