Red Truck 1953 All Purpose Trout Outfit:
Red Truck's 1953 Trout Fly Fishing Outfit was born from 30 years of retail experience assisting beginning fly anglers with their desire to own a responsibly-priced, balanced outfit that was worthy of ownership. With this in mind we began the lengthy process of designing the balanced outfit we knew should exist. After four years of testing, refining and testing again, the 1953 All Purpose Trout Outfit was born.
Performance is a term overused when it comes to fly rod design. Our goal at Red Truck is efficiency, both in casting and catching. Take our 1953 fly rod for instance. Of course it's crafted from all the right materials, but more importantly it's what we do with these materials that counts. Our nine foot five weight 1953 is well-balanced, stable, plush and again...efficient. This approach simply means that every cast is enjoyable and accurate. And when you put the fly where you want it...you'll catch more fish!
Even the best fly rod can lose some of its magic when paired with an incorrect fly line. That's why we put in the extra effort to tirelessly search for and field test fly lines until we found the correct fly line for our all purpose trout fly rod. Our Red Truck Trout weight-forward five weight fly line is butter-smooth when casting and floats like a cork on the water. It has the right taper to enjoy dry fly, nymph and even smaller streamer fishing, making this the perfect line for any fly angler wishing to adjust his or her technique to the ever-changing angling conditions.
You've probably heard it before, “A fly reel just holds your fly line.” Although there is some truth to this statement, like a lot of things in life, there's more to it. The right fly reel will balance physically with the fly rod, adding efficiency and casting enjoyment to the experience. Our Red Truck Standard Trout fly reel takes it even further adding increased fishing function with its easily-adjustable disc drag. You'll be able to dial in just the right amount of resistance, so you can slow down the big one.
When combined, the smartly-designed components that create our Red Truck 1953 All Purpose Trout Outfit, prove that the whole can indeed be more than the sum of parts. You'll enter the world of fly fishing for trout with an outfit worthy of ownership and your limited time on the water.
Finally, you can stow your Red Truck 1953 fly rod (with reel attached) easily in our nylon-covered protective tube. Not only is this convenient for travel, you'll be ready at a moment's notice to hit the water with the right gear for the job

You told us there were too many bewildering product choices and that you wanted concise answers and recommendations to your questions and fishing needs. When purchasing fly gear, you wanted to feel confident that you were making a smart investment in a product that would not be replaced next year with a "newer" version. In essence, you wanted stuff that works and was worth your hard-earned money!
At Red Truck, we've listened to you and leveraged our staff's combined 300 plus years of fly fishing experience to design equipment that is strictly necessary
and that raises your level of enjoyment from purchase to use.
tested this gear with hard-working, no-nonsense, professional guides
who rely on their tackle in the same way as a carpenter does his hammer. With each project, we always asked ourselves, "Does this product deserve to exist?"
Our Red Truck fly rods embody this honest thinking.
Unlike some fly rod brands that employ a myopic marketing campaign,
stating their rod is the lightest, at Red Truck, we focus on the big
picture. We believe in the essential characteristics of a truly good rod: balance, minimal swing weight, true-tracking, stability and efficiency. The result of this balanced rod design approach is a selection of fly rods that are a joy to cast and fish.
For our Red Truck Fly Reels, we took the same angle. Instead of inventing a new marketing slant or a hyper-technical pitch, we designed reels that speak to the core reason most of us fly fish: simplicity. We wanted to offer reels that get the job done, look good while doing it and last a long time.
Take apart our Red Truck Premium fly reel and you'll know in a glance
how the drag systems work and more importantly, why they won't fail.
Sure, all our Red Truck equipment employs the latest in quality materials and manufacturing. Heck, we even work in titanium when necessary. But we never push any unproven concept or pseudo-technology, especially when we deem it unnecessary.
At Red Truck, we believe that fly fishing should be fun and that your fly tackle should always work as intended. We like fishing memories of friends, dusty handshakes, wet dogs, great casts, beautiful places and even a fish or two. We design gear that takes you into the outdoors and gets the job done in the field, every time.

Attached please find a photo of me with a beautiful brown trout caught using my new Abel reel purchased from Leland. You guys are the best in offering advise and your upgrade program is Great !!!!
Having fly fished for over 40 years, I have accumulated a lot of equipment that I don't use anymore…that is until I found your upgrade program. Now I am able to have the Loop Cross S1, what I consider the best fly rod made. I can't thank you enough for providing this service. Leland has a customer for life now.
wanted to post about a great experience I had with Leland Outfitters
and their exchange program. I shipped them a bunch of old flyfishing
equipment I no longer used, they cleaned it up and sold it on ebay for
me, and I was able to buy new equipment. It all worked just as it was
supposed to, and that doesn't happen very often these days. I can highly
recommend you do business with this shop.
This will be my third and fourth rods to sell
through the Upgrade Program. The first sales went so well. I was impressed at the
professional way everything was handled from the start to buying my new Scott T2H switch rod. I
am convinced that you net me more cash because of the great presentation and the
I recently went on my first Salt Water trip and after
doing some research I decided to go with the Hatch reels for the trip. I
was not disappointed by their performance. When I returned to the
States, I decided to make the full conversion to Hatch reels for all my
fly fishing and the Leland Upgrade Program was perfect for this goal. I
sold all of my non Hatch reels and used all the profits to replace my
old fresh water reels. I got top dollar for my old gear and I had no
hassles selling it. Leland took care of it all.
My only problem is now I also started buying from the Leland Upgrade
listings. I found some great values and hard to find
merchandise. I check the listings very few days looking for that new
used gear item I can't live without.
The program is very well run and organized. The staff have
been excellent in customer service. I would highly recommend this
I want to thank the Leland Upgrade Program for this
incredible program! You guys made it possible for me to sell my used
gear, some of it decades old, and get equipment I’d been dreaming about.
When I sent my gear to you I had hoped to sell enough stuff to
partially finance one particular Winston bamboo fly rod. Not only did I
get the Winston bamboo but amazingly I was able to pick-up two Winston
IIIx rods and a tackle pack for my spring bonefishing trip to the
This program is great! Selling my used equipment was easy,
stress-free and may have contributed to the improvement of my marriage!
"About my experience with Leland Upgrade I can address to
that no matter if you are selling or you are buying from
like I did few times during last three years, you can
be absolutely sure
that your product will get best professional evaluation and
presentation allowing other people to buy it with confidence
and trust. In my opinion this is the key of any Upgrade program and
Leland has developed it extremely well."
"I am heading to Belize for some saltwater fishing in
June, 2011. Needed to standardize my reels. Had an Abel Super 8 and Sage
3400D with spools for my 10wts. Decided to purchase two Tibor Riptide
reels but how do I sell my Abel and Sage? Bingo, the Leland Upgrade
Program. Jon & Casey handled the selling of the reels on eBay from
start to finish. I received a good enough price that I was able to
purchase one of the Riptides and some accessories. If this program was
not available I would probably still have the two reels and spools. Jon
and I are also working on some additional equipment that I need. To Jon
and the Upgrade Program, "Job Well Done"
Larry was most impressed with the communication from the Upgrade Team during the sale of his gear.
Best of all, he got a little more credit out of the experience than he expected. Here's how Larry's expectations were exceeded:
“When I first came upon it
online, I thought it would be a good way to sell some old fly fishing
equipment, and I didn't have any idea as to current value, collectiblity
or demand,” Larry said. “I had a number in mind as to what would be a
fair price for my gear and was pleased and surprised to have gotten
twice what I expected.”

If you'd like to make an exchange, do so in one of two ways:
1) The Best Option is to immediately place an order for the replacement items. Do this online or over the phone with one of our fish whisperers. You will be billed for these items. At any time -- during, before, or after this second order -- you can ship us the unwanted items from your original order, and upon receipt of them here we will credit you for those items. Please use the back of your invoice for any comments, and include it (or a copy) with your return shipment. This method ensures the most efficient processing of your return, but more importantly, it ensures the best availability of the new outgoing replacement items.
2) The Second Best Option: Ship us the items you'd like to exchange. Please include a copy of your receipt and write instructions detailing the exchange (For example: "These Medium Waders are too small, exchange for size Large of the same wader.") In most cases, on receiving your original items, we'll issue a credit on the next Thursday. (If something comes up, we'll call you to get it straightened out.) Your replacement items will ship out within 2 business day and will be charged as a separate transaction. Please be aware that the hoped-for replacement items may sell out while your exchange is in transit. This is the reason that the above option is encouraged. If you'd like to make a return, please ship the items to the address above and include a copy of your receipt. In most cases, we'll issue a refund to the credit card you used for the original purchase on the first Thursday after receipt of your goods. If something comes up, we'll call you to get it straightened out. Worry not.
If we are shipping your purchase to a destination outside of California, you won't be charged sales tax. For those orders sent within the state, you will be charged the appropriate rate.

Do you match prices?
Yes. We do our best to keep our prices as low as possible. But if one of our competitors goes lower, don't hesitate to ask us beat their price.Please keep in mind that sometimes price-matching isn't as simple as it appears. We like to make sure we're comparing apples to apples. There can be great variation in the cost of bundled or kitted products. Some retailers choose to cut corners by using second-rate products to round out their packages. When comparing prices, please make sure to keep an eye out for such details!
In order to consider a price matching request, we will require proper documentation:
(1) A link to a webpage showing the lower price.
(2) A forwarded email with the price quote, including the name of the retailer in order to ensure that they are an authorized dealer of the products they're promoting.
Then lets get you fishing with great product at 10% less.

Do you offer price protection?
Yes we do. If you purchase a product from us, and we end up reducing the price of that item within 60 days of your purchase, you are welcome to contact us and we will issue you a Leland gift card for the difference. This policy only applies if we have the same size and color of the item that you originally purchased in stock, as sometimes we'll reduce prices when we need to get the last few stragglers of a given product out the door.
Please note that our Price Protection policy will not be applicable to promotional discounts. Promotional discounts are not applicable to previous purchases.
Can I use my Leland Upgrade credit on this site?
Yes. The Leland Upgrade Program and the credit it generates is a premium service now available on our websites. There are no exceptions. For more information about the Leland Upgrade Program, click here.
