Fishwest Upgrade Program

Are you drooling over the latest and greatest fly rod or reel? Do you want to upgrade, but don't want to mess around with selling your gear locally or online?

We have the perfect solution -- let us do it for you! Just print and fill out our Upgrade Program form below and bring your items to our shop. From there, we will handle the rest. This program is only availble to our local customers at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.

When your item sells, you’ll receive a Fishwest gift card to use at the shop for your brand new, replacement gear. For more details please see below..

We simply take your unwanted gear and help turn it into something you want to fish!

How It Works - eBay Style Auction:

Once an item is received by our Upgrade Program staff, we photograph it and build an eBay listing that accurately describes your product. Items are scheduled to run on an eBay auction for 10 days, starting at 99 cents with no reserve.

We have found this to be the most effective method when selling used gear. We start items at 99 cents to encourage bidding and competition for the item. The auction-style listings tend to promote higher bids and selling values.

After the listing has sold and the buyer’s payment has cleared, you receive the final value of the selling price minus 25% (12% eBay Fees) in the form of a gift card, which can be used at the Fishwest Fly Shop in Sandy Utah.

** The Fine Print: We list all items with no reserve, which results in better sale prices, and more value to you. Once an item is started, it cannot be ended. Ending a listing early reflects badly on Fishwest and our business on eBay. Store credit is not redeemable for cash or available for use on any Fishwest Travel trips. Bidding on your own item is NOT allowed and your item will be forfeited for this kind of activity.

This program has been part of the fine services offered at Fishwest for many years and we’re happy to lend a hand to get you the fly fishing gear you want.
