Fly fishermen know that they can't have too much gear. The need for a new fly rod or new waders is constant. Often your need for new fishing or hunting equipment is not seen by loved ones as being a necessary expense. Stillwater Fly Shop's Trade-Up Program enables you to get the new fly fishing or hunting gear that you need without costing you a fortune and heartache at home.

Stillwater Fly Shop's Solution

The Stillwater Trade-Up Program gives you the benefit of trading in your current gear (only rods and reels are accepted) for immediate credit towards any purchase from Stillwater. The trade-up can almost instantly be applied to the purchase of the new equipment for which you have been longing. There is no waiting for your gear to sell - Stillwater buys your fly rods and reels. You get your new gear right away!

How to Trade-Up

PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SHOP REGARDING TRADE UP. EMAIL COMMUNICATION IS REQUIRED. Begin by sending an email to describing the gear you would like to trade up. This step is required because we need to agree upon an estimate and it will create a record of the transaction. In this email please include the following about your trade up items:  

  • Brand

  • Model

  • Condition Level (your best estimate)

  • Number of Pieces (for rods)

  • Right or Left Hand Retrieve (for reels)

  • If Your Reel Has Backing and/or Line on it: Line type/weight and Brand

  • Backing Weight

Any images you would like to share (this is optional and does not impact our decision or estimate)

    Once we have made an agreement on the estimate, please create an account on our website if you are not a previous customer. Then print and fill out the intake form and mail with your trade-in gear to the following address:
