Used & Vintage

Welcome to the Used and Vintage, where you will find quality previously owned fly fishing products to purchase. Here at Western Rivers Flyfisher we offer you the opportunity to sell, or  trade-in, quality, name brand, used and vintage fly fishing rods, reels and unique books. This is a great way to upgrade to a new premium rod or reel that we carry here at Western Rivers Flyfisher, or to purchase a quality used rod or reel. 

Through our used trade-in program there are a number of options to choose from: store credit, consignment for store credit or consignment for cash, to make the most of your good used fly fishing equipment.  Once an option is settled upon, your items will be cleaned, photographed, posted to our website, and displayed in the store. For on-line orders, we’ll handle the transaction through our website and will take care of packing and shipping items to customers. 

How Does It Work? Bring your quality used and vintage rods, reels, and books, that you wish to sell or trade-in. We will work to establish a value for those items that is mutually agreeable.  Not all items brought in for assessment will be accepted.  We are interested in name brand used and vintage items from makers such as Winston, Hardy, Sage, Scott, Leonard, Thomas & Thomas and Bogdan.

Used fly rods and reels looking for a second life, these are generally more contemporary. Rods like Sage XP's, Winston IM6's, Scott Original G's and G2's, among others. Reels like Sage 500 series, Hardy's like Princesses', Perfect's, and Marquis' and Abel TR's.

Vintage fly rods and reels that we consider collectible, unique and tend to be on the older side and carry higher prices as a result. We usually have a selection of bamboo fly rods. Rods both cane and fiberglass from makers like Winston, Thomas & Thomas, Wright & McGill/Granger, Payne, Leonard, Howells, and Tom Morgan among others. Reels from Hardy, Bogdan, Saracione, and Tibor among others.
