The Only Certified Pre-Owned Program in Fly Fishing.

When buying a fly rod or reel, you have three basic options: eBay, Craigslist, and private sellers, none of which are well-suited for buying expensive fly rods and reels. Rods can be damaged, reel listings can be wrong, there are no warranties, and transactions are final.

Outfishers solves all of these problems. Our value is to bring you confidence when buying pre-owned fly fishing equipment.
