Turn your used gear into new gear! We've all been there, unused fly fishing gear building up in your closet, garage, or chosen storage facility, going unused and under-appreciated year after year. And with all of the new gear coming out on an annual basis, wouldn't it be nice to have a way to turn that old, used gear into something new that you'd actually want to use? Trouts Gear Trade-In program was designed specifically for this need.

Simply bring in your used BUT usable rods, reels, waders or boots by either our Trouts Denver or Trouts Frisco locations, and we'll give you store credit that you can use towards the purchase of a new like for like product.* No, this isn't a joke, this is just how we like to do things here at Trouts Fly Fishing. Customer service is our number one priority, and we feel that ensuring your time on the water is as meaningful as possible goes right in line with being Colorado's go-to fly shop and fly fishing outfitter. So swing on by one of our stores and let our professional sales staff help get you into that next great piece of fly fishing gear.


We accept all fly rods and fly reels from any fly fishing manufacturer (sorry, spin rods are not allowed). All fly rods and fly reels must be in usable condition**


We accept all waders, boots, and other wading footwear from any fly fishing manufacturer. All waders, boots, and shoes must be in visibly usable condition**


Nearly 10 years ago Trouts Fly Fishing started our Gear Upgrade Program as a way to help our customers get out of the old and into the new. In that time, we have seen like programs popping up from shops across the country, which has flooded the second-hand market for rods and reels, resulting in lower and lower returns. It was due to this fact that we initiated our Gear Trade-In program, but we still offer our Gear Upgrade Program to interested customers. If you would like to learn more about our Gear Upgrade program, please contact us at (303) 733-1434, or email us at
