FAQ's

Why consign my gear through Leland Fly Tackle Consignment?

Selling fly tackle through our world renowned ebay store maximizes consignee returns and ultimately puts more money in your pocket. That's where Leland Fly Tackle Consignment comes into play. Sometimes you don't need new gear... maybe you have acquired a family members collection of tackle, you no longer fly fish, or you just need cash. Leland's here to help turn this tackle into cash.

What makes Leland Fly Tackle Consignment different than other consignment programs out there?

The beauty of our program is that each item is sold as a 7 day auction on ebay... after only 7 days it's sold. No more waiting months for a shop to sell your tackle in the back corner or other websites that list items at a set price who receive little or no traffic. Ebay is a worldwide marketplace and Leland has mastered the art of selling here. From our 5 high resolution studio photos, to compelling item descriptions and accurate condition assessments we are a trusted source for those looking to purchase quality tackle. What does that mean for you the consignee? More $$$, our sale prices are consistently 15% higher than other selling methods and you won't even get your hands dirty. We do all of the work, from cleaning to minor repairs because our goal is to make you more money!

What are your consignment fee's?

Leland Fly Tackle Consignment takes a commission of 30% after ebay and PayPal fees are deducted (10% of the sale price). Remember, you would pay these same fees if you sold the item yourself. Example: If an item sells for $100, $10 goes to ebay and PayPal, and you keep $63.

What form does the money come in?

All you need is a PayPal account to receive your cash return. PayPal is a secure form of money transferring and it allows you to use the money for other online purchases or simply transfer to a debit card or linked bank account. If you have more questions about PayPal just ask.

How long does it take?

From the day we receive your gear, it generally takes 2-3 weeks for all items to sell and for Leland to issue a one time PayPal money transfer. Leland Upgrade credit is updated each week while Leland Consignment transfers are done once all your items sell.

Can I get some money in cash and some in store credit, maybe I want a new fly rod outfit?

Of course you can. Please let us know first, but we can split any of your proceeds into a gift card and the remainder into cash via PayPal. Many have sold their tackle after leaving the sport and decided to gift new gear to the younger generation, son's, daughter's and grandchildren. Don't give them your old worn out gear, get them something new they'll enjoy for many years to come.

detdesc::Leader refers to the section of monofilament that is attached to the end of the fly line. The material looks similar to standard fishing line, but in reality, it is much harder than the standard line and this allows for full stretching of the leader during casting. Shorter leaders are appropriate for small streams and longer leaders can be effectively used to fish large rivers and lakes. The end of the leader is termed as the tippet and the manufacturer normally sells it as a part of the leader. The tippet is the linkage between the leader and the fly. The size of the fly and the wariness of the fish are the factors that determine the choice of tippets which may be of different lengths and sizes. Generally, dry fly leaders are long and slender, but you’ll need leaders that are two feet in length and .010 in diameter if you are fishing with deep-sunk streamers. Targeting toothy species will require you to opt for strong and durable tippets- shock tippets, made of thick monofilament or stainless steel wire.
With fly fishing becoming more and more sophisticated due to the introduction of upgraded fly fishing tackle in the market, things are becoming really confusing for the fly fishing enthusiasts- novice as well as experienced. What to buy, what not to buy, where to buy, and how much to pay are the concerns that might steal some of your stamina right at the onset of the fly fishing season. Shop online; be at ease, save your energy for some real action. Buy fly fishing accessories and equipments at a local fly shop, which is not just a shop…but a vast information resource pool that makes fly fishing interesting as well.

What is a Tarpon
The Tarpon is a giant among saltwater game fish. Although it is not the largest game fish a fly angler can catch and release, it’s known as “the silver king” throughout the warm lagoons, estuaries, thick mangrove swamps, and saltwater flats of southeastern North America, the Caribbean, and northeastern coast of South America. The tarpon: saltwater royalty. Adult tarpon can easily reach 6 or 7 feet in length and can weigh well over 150 pounds.

Megalops atlanticus
Archille Valenciennes, 1847
 

“Then the water split with a hissing sound to let out a great tarpon, long as a door, seemingly as wide, who shot up and up into the air … Five times he sprang toward the blue sky, and as many he plunged down with a thunderous crash. The reel screamed. The line sang. The rod, which I thought stiff as a tree, bent like a willow wand. The silver king came up far astern and sheered to the right in a long, wide curve, leaving behind a white wake.”

 
- Zane Grey, “Byme-by-tarpon.”


The tarpon is a giant among saltwater game fish. Although it is not the largest game fish a fly angler can catch and release, it’s known as “the silver king” throughout the warm lagoons, estuaries, thick mangrove swamps, and saltwater flats of southeastern North America, the Caribbean, and northeastern coast of South America. The tarpon: saltwater royalty. Adult tarpon can easily reach 6 or 7 feet in length and can weigh well over 150 pounds. The Megalops atlanticus is astonishingly powerful and is famous among anglers as the mythological silver beast that can walk on water. Tarpon, once hooked, are known for jumping and thrashing about, sometimes longer than 3 hours, their tails skitting across the flat.

The silver king, although caught by indigenous tribes in the Florida Keys probably as early as the 1700s, was officially discovered and named in 1847 by the French parasitologist Archille Valenciennes during his work with Georges Cuvier on their Natural History of Fish, a whopping 22-volume work published between 1828 and 1848. Valenciennes placed the tarpon within the genus Megalops (Greek for “large eye”) because of its prominent and daunting black eyes. Since the turn of the century, a great body of literature, historical and otherwise, has been developed on the subject of tarpon. Fly fishing for tarpon is now a wildly popular sporting pursuit among anglers from Georgia to the Florida Keys, and tarpon are also highly sought after throughout the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean. Recently, giant tarpon in the 300 pound class have been caught on fly tackle off the southwestern coast of Africa. Tarpon have been so popular in the Gulf region of the United States that in 1955, by act no. 564 of the Alabama state legislature, the “fighting tarpon” became the state’s official saltwater fish.

Rolling and dashing through skinny saltwater flats and estuaries tarpon inhabit a range of 49°N - 44°s, 99°w - 14°e, but they have been recorded as far north as Nova Scotia, along the Atlantic coast of Southern France, and as far south as Argentina. The tarpon uses the thin water of the saltwater flats to feed on smaller baitfish and crustaceans. The deeper water of the open ocean is the tarpon’s spawning grounds. The tarpon does have a counterpart native to the Pacific Ocean (Megalops cyprinoids or Indo-Pacific tarpon), but this tarpon is a much smaller fish and not prized among fly anglers.

Tarpon are an ancient fish that has survived 125 million years of evolutionary tumult. One of the oldest living species in the ocean, the tarpon carries an almost otherworldly presence. Just catching a glimpse of a rolling school of giant tarpon is an intimidating sight even to the most confident fly angler. The tarpon’s huge bucket-like jaws and large black eyes compliment its thick, powerful body. When tarpon clear the top water during a jump, their massive set of mirror-polished scales clatter and clack audibly with the tremendous force of the maneuver. The tarpon’s fins are a dark, steely gray and the tail is deeply forked, providing the silver king with a tremendous amount of underwater leverage and speed.
According to historical accounts dating from the late 1800s, anglers have been able to catch tarpon on artificial flies with reasonable success. Since then fly fishing for tarpon has steadily increased in popularity owing to rousing tales of madly fighting fish from such popular authors as Zane Grey and, more recently, Lefty Kreh. The rising interest in saltwater fly fishing, coupled with tarpon-specific articles and books by other fly fishing greats have fueled the rush to master tarpon on a fly. Today, there is now an extensive network of guides fly fishing exclusively for tarpon from Florida to South America, and a number of tournaments and other competitions celebrating fly fishing for tarpon have also cropped up in recent years.

Fly anglers should understand that there are three classes or sizes of tarpon: baby tarpon, midsize tarpon, and giant tarpon. Baby tarpon range from 5 to 40 pounds, midsize tarpon fill the 50 to 80 pound class, and the giant tarpon weighs in at an astonishing 100+ pounds. Anglers looking to chase tarpon on the fly should think seriously about which weight class they are after before they gear up and head on that tarpon trip of a lifetime. Smaller tarpon are often found cruising on the edges of saltwater flats and in brackish inland estuaries and mangrove swamps. Larger tarpon are usually found cruising and rolling in saltwater flats.

Baby and midsize tarpon offer quite a fighting challenge on an 8 weight or 9 weight outfit. Giant tarpon, however, require much heavier 11 or 12 weight outfits. Fast action fly fishing rods are popular among tarpon anglers for their ability to assist the caster in creating the long, accurate casts (often into heavy wind) required when sight casting for tarpon. It’s important to have top-notch fishing tools when stalking tarpon of any size in the saltwater flats; an angler, even on the best day, may only get 3 or 4 good casts at fish!

As with any saltwater flats game fish, spotting a tarpon can be a challenge. Sunny conditions on saltwater flats can produce some of the world’s most visually taxing conditions, and the sheer brightness of the glare on the water can be overwhelming. A good pair of polarized sunglasses with copper photochromatic lenses can – on some days – be considered the saltwater fly angler’s most useful fishing tool. Yellow photochromatic lenses can be useful for morning light conditions, so if you plan to fish from dawn until dusk, consider two pairs of shades. (Experience in spotting tarpon, or a guide perched atop the polling platform of a specialized flats skiff will also help!)

There is a recent movement among saltwater fly anglers who chase tarpon to “dredge” deeper channels and estuaries for tarpon of all size classes. This dredging method is anchored in common blind casting techniques familiar to striped bass fly anglers of the North American coasts. Dredging for tarpon with a sinking line can be productive, but remains a relatively new and unproven tactic in the quiver of tarpon fly fishers.

Deep Water Fly Line

Perhaps the easiest way to recognize the location of a single, pair, or school of tarpon is by the characteristic “rolling” action the species exhibits. The tarpon is equipped with a swim bladder, allowing them to survive and thrive in brackish swamps and saltwater flats as well as the open ocean. Tarpon will periodically appear at the water’s surface to take in a breath, filling their swim bladder before rolling back into the salty depths. This process, although graceful, can cause quite a stir. Fly anglers should be on the lookout for large boils and bubbles in the top water accompanied by a silvery flash – this is likely a rolling tarpon.

Large tarpon in saltwater flats will aggressively chase and take a well-presented fly, adding to the species’ storied place in saltwater game fish mythology. Tarpon will respond energetically to a fly moving directly away from them. Creating this effect can be achieved with a hook cast or a reach cast, both practiced techniques used by freshwater fly anglers. Saltwater flats can offer a fly angler some of the most challenging casting conditions on earth. Long, tuned, and accurate casts of 60 to 70 feet are often necessary. Once the fly is properly presented to the tarpon, the stripping game is on. Anglers will invariably disagree on which are the most effective methods for retrieving the fly when fly fishing for tarpon in the saltwater flats. In one conversation on the subject, one might hear “fast, slow, smooth, jerky” … often in the same breath. Never fear, a local guide will often know just how to play and move a fly to produce results; listen to what they have to say! Be patient though, as tarpon have been known to chase a well-presented and retrieved fly all the way to the boat before striking!

Brackish inland estuaries and mangrove swamps offer saltwater fly anglers amazing chances to cast to, catch and release baby tarpon. Some canal systems – especially in southwest Florida – provide excellent shelter for juvenile tarpon, even through the slow winter months. When fishing these environments, work streamers as close to the mangrove roots as possible. As the tide goes out, more and more of these mangrove roots will be exposed, leaving behind an excellent feeding shelf for baby tarpon. Remember: well-presented flies will move silver kings!



Simply hooking a tarpon can be an operatic experience in itself. The tarpon’s mouth is extremely hard and has been likened to tough construction-grade concrete. Subsequently, successful hook sets are almost more challenging than actually getting an aggressive tarpon to take a well-presented fly. Practice in firm and confident strip setting techniques is extremely important when fly fishing for tarpon. When a tarpon finally chomps the fly, and the hook is set, the fish will put on an impressive aerial acrobatics show. Seasoned tarpon anglers, when trading notes on a day’s work, will often proudly include the number of “fish jumped” as well as the number of fish landed. Tarpon are consistently observed jumping 3 or 4 feet above the water after a hook up. During this aggressive jumping and thrashing, fly, fly line, and tippet are at their most vulnerable point. It is extremely important to protect rigging and tackle by keeping the rod tip as low as possible during the initial few jumps. This process is called “bowing” to the fish, and it’s no secret, bowing to the silver king will minimize the chance of losing a tarpon to a snapped line or leader.

Tarpon fly anglers presented with the challenge of keeping a tail-walking silver king on the line have developed a number of rigging techniques designed to stand up to what many think are the toughest and wildest fighters in the salt. Taking a nod from the rigging standards employed by bill fish and tuna anglers, anglers in hot pursuit of monster tarpon have experimented with extremely complex, heavy rigs. The standard 9 foot tarpon leader, however, consists of a heavy 60 pound butt section, a section of 16 to 20 class tippet, and finally a short, one foot section of 60 to 100 pound mono shock tippet. This rig is the standard for many medium to large tarpon, but there are other options for the really large fish. Be sure to ask your local fly shop about the leaders you should have ready to go before you board the plane for your chosen tropical tarpon destination. Keeping this general rigging rule for tarpon fishing can be helpful: When traveling to far-flung destinations, bring your rigging with you. When traveling to the Florida Keys, a good guide should provide all you need to jump and land the tarpon of your dreams.

Tarpon Leaders

Do not head to the saltwater flats in search of tarpon armed with a sub-standard fly reel. The stress a tarpon can place on even the strongest rods, lines, and leaders is truly impressive – to say the very least. The fly reel is the mechanical link for your connection to the fish and if it goes south, so does your time on the water. Be sure to find a reel with an iron-clad drag system and a large arbor for easy line pick up. The reel should also be large enough to store between 200 and 250 yards of backing; if you find yourself connected to a rolling fish, you’ll use it.

Ultimate Tarpon Fly Reel

When at home along the saltwater flats, tarpon will hunt and feed mostly on baitfish. When migrating and spawning, tarpon are more likely to feed instinctively on smaller crustaceans. Regardless of the situation, however, tarpon will aggressively chase a well-presented fly. Large streamer patterns are the most effective flies for tarpon of all sizes, but some smaller crab and shrimp patterns will yield good results on days when the silver kings are on the move or in a more selective mood.

A favorite classic tarpon fly from Florida to the Bahamas is the Cockroach, developed by saltwater fly fishing legend Lefty Kreh. Other proven tarpon flies include Lefty’s Deceiver, the Clouser Minnow, and the Sea Habit. When tarpon are migrating or on the spawn, the Tarpon Shrimp, Tarpon Crab, and the Seaducer are another trio of useful tarpon flies to have on hand, and the Campeche Special is a brilliant fly for baby tarpon in the mangroves of Mexico’s Gulf Coast.

Tarpon offer fly anglers a unique challenge; discovering the proper blend of power, strategy, concentration, and finesse is crucial when on the flats or in the brackish water in search of rolling tarpon. The majesty of the tarpon survives in a heap of literature from Grey to Kreh, and with good reason. Holding court, the tarpon truly is the silver king of the flats, offering excited anglers throughout the tropics the sport, the drama, the epic struggle, and the joy of the great kings of mythology.

How did you get started fly fishing? What were/are your strongest fly fishing Influences? What was your most memorable or first fly fishing experience?

While conventional fishing with my father on the banks of the San Joaquin each summer, I watched casters of those long rods paint the water with dry flies. These fly fishermen were free to search every nook of the stream for the native, colorful, and wily trout. I feared this type of angling freedom was not available to me. Luckily, driven by the legacy of my Grandfather and images of these "free" fly fishers, I challenged my apprehension and picked up a fly rod.

What do you like to fish now? Explain How?

Steelhead and Tarpon are the fish I travel for each year. I love the Florida Keys, in the off season, for specific permit, tarpon and bonefish trips. I will fish for anything that will come to a dry fly. A six inch golden, in its native water, rising to a dry fly is the best thing in the world.

What is your fantasy trip? What do you see in the future

Fishing any small stream in the golden state with my wife, two daughters and two dogs.

Gear. What is your next purchase and why?

We have just designed the coolest fly-fishing gear in the world. Stay Tuned. After 15 years in the industry, I had lost a lot of the excitement about gear. No longer. I want 5 of each!!

What’s your favorite San Francisco spot? Why?

Much to my wife’s dismay my favorite spot in San Francisco is Fishermen’s Wharf. Everyone there is on vacation, happy and visiting my city. Their smiling faces reminded me that I live in the best city in the world. I also like the Fishermen part of the Wharf.

What music do you listen to when you hop in the truck and go fly fishing?

I listen, exclusively, to Willie Nelson on my way to fishing. His songs are real and dusty, like the roads to the best fishing.

What’s your ultimate fly fishing travel rig? A lifted van? A Range Rover? An F-350? Why?

I have half of the rig. A 16 foot Airstream Bambi. I want a Sportsmobile 4WD with pop up, racks, storage and full sound in Yellow to pull it!

Anything else we should know about you? School? Hometown? Other projects, interests, etc.?

Joshua was born in Oxford, England and has lived in Maine, Boston, Toronto, upstate New York, and San Francisco. Josh is an avid fly fisherman who has fished near and far for much of his life. Josh graduated from Colgate University in Hamilton, New York in 1997 where he studied Economics. Following his graduation, Josh moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and began his work in the fly fishing industry with Orvis of San Francisco. In 1998, Josh left Orvis and joined the staff at San Francisco’s Fly Fishing Outfitters and in 1999 he took over the operation, renaming it Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters after his grandfather, Leland Frazier. Since then, Josh has successfully positioned himself and his growing business as innovators in fly fishing specialty retail and fly fishing education both in traditional and online channels. Josh continues to travel the world extensively in search of tarpon and steelhead. He is a Master certified fly casting instructor and is working on his master certifications in Spey casting. During the week, when not at the San Francisco shop, you can catch him teaching private casting lessons at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park Casting Ponds.

Josh’s home is now in San Francisco, CA, where he lives with his wife, two daughters, and two dogs. In his free time, Josh enjoys learning guitar with his wife. He is also an avid soccer player who enjoys the competitive city leagues for which the Bay Area is famous.

Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters
Company Profile

Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters is a designer, procurer and online seller of Fly Fishing equipment and apparel that was founded in San Francisco in 1985 and is named after the grandfather of its owner Josh Leland Frazier, who bought the company in 1999.

Leland Fly Fishing Ranch along Highway 121 in southern Sonoma County is the company’s new home.  It is a work in progress established to provide a place where our expert team and customers can come together to share a knowledge of and passion for fly fishing—how to do it, where to do it, and most importantly why.

At Leland, we understand and celebrate fly-fishing as a gateway to other truths, about nature, humankind’s connection to it and our intended role as stewards, lest what has been created be lost for evermore.  Rivers need friends, we say, and fly-fishing creates these friends.

Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters and Ranch exists to foster that ethic.  Where the big box and chain retailers push every product under the sun and the objective is just sales, our approach is guidance and instruction.  We understand that fly-fishing is a sport best promoted through mentoring.

To that end, we procure and sell elite, expertly crafted fly-fishing gear that isn’t complicated and that we actually use.  And we put just as much energy and effort into creating encouraging opportunities to learn—through in person instruction and online instructional articles and videos intended to demystify the sport, build confidence and create anglers.

We are the modern version of the old fly-fishing specialty shops that once existed to share knowledge of fly-fishing and passion for the environment.  At Leland, our vision is this: hook an angler, who will one day share the sport with a daughter or son, creating new generations of angler-environmentalists, one person at a time.

Dear Leland Upgrade Team
Last year I happened to tell one of my fishing buddies, that I wanted to sell some of my old fly fishing stuff on ebay.  My friend told me about Leland Fly Fishing Outfitters and the Leland Upgrade program.
 
After reading about the Leland Upgrade on your website, and a quick phone call for some minor questions, I sent you my fly fishing rods & equipment that I wasn't using anymore.  I can't tell you how surprised I was at how quickly you got this equipment on ebay and sold.  I was also very pleased by the prices that you were able to get for me.
 
Thank you again for making this an easy process, and making my experience with Leland a great one!  I will tell everyone about the Leland Upgrade team and how you enabled me to upgrade my fly fishing equipment painlessly and without spending a lot of money!
Thank you again.

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.

Duncan of Orange Beach, AL

I 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.










8/21/12
Joel of Dutch Flat, CA

Job well done.  This really is a no-hassle way to clean out the closet of gear I wasn’t using and get some items that I do need for Christmas Island.    
I’ve not listed anything on ebay before, but watching the process was like fishing itself, toss the offering out there and see what happens.

And now for the fun part!
Cheers,
Joel

Cary of Arlington, VA

I promised myself no new fly rods until I got rid of some that I no longer use so naturally Leland Upgrade came to mind. I now have sold seven rods through Leland and I am confident that I got a good price for every single one (and I saved myself a lot of hassle) because Leland was the interface with the buyer. They kept me well informed and was a pleasure to work with.  And I cannot wait to go fishing with my new gear.

Big thanks to Casey and the guys at Leland outfitters for rigging my tibor reels,, they are amazing reels.. the backing and the bimini loop got plenty of work this week,, it helped land this 41"-35lb bass
the upgrade program is the best!!!!
thanks!

John C. of Illinois


Just a short note to express my complete satisfaction with
your program. You were most helpful before I sent my rod to you--and after the rod sold as well. Your pictures and comments were the reason the rod did as well as it did. I would not hesitate to make your talent, as well as your program, public. What an asset
for a fly shop to have.

Mark of Southern California

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the Leland Upgrade Program.  The process was completely painless and the descriptions of the my gear were well written and accurate.  The best part was the results, so much better than I expected!  I will definitely do this again in fact I’m cleaning out my garage now.

Alain of Branford, CT

I am really pleased with the Leland Upgrade Program.  The no-nonsense
commission is perfect, as the people who send you product can
easily track their auctions and know immediately what they are owed in
store credit.  Casey did a great job answering my questions and
updating the auction's progress and payment.  You did everything
perfectly and the listing was the most professional I have seen.  Your
photography and listing was top-notch.  I have already recommended
your service to numerous people in the Northeast (I am part of the
competitive fly-fishing community and a huge proponent of European
nymphing styles).  There are other eBay services, but none as
professional as yours.

Derry of Ireland

In relation to feedback on the Leland Upgrade experience, I am very satisfied especially with the ability to follow the auction on ebay. This was my first time to use this facility and will certainly use it again very soon in the future. It’s amazing to discover how many rods / reels one has that are seldom used!! Great idea and works well for all.

Scott of Horseshoe Bay, TX


I can't thank you enough for your encouragement to gather up some of my seldom used fly fishing gear and give you a chance to find it a new home. Your program is marvelous and you really do absolutely everything involved in the auction sale process. Every item I sent you was very professionally marketed and each one brought far more value that I expected. It certainly will not be a problem to spend up my

"A Fly Fishing Fairytale" Once upon a recent time there was a tall fly fisherman who during the course of a passionate fly fishing life accumulated many rods,reels and spools that he no longer used. The formerly utilized fly gear languished in a desk,closet and his garage. The equipment was much too fine to not be used and their disuse caused the fly fisherman minor ennui and consternation.  The accumulated unused gear also inhibited the fly angler from buying new and finer gear. As great luck would have it the fly Angler learned of a magician's guild known as Leland Fly Fishing's Upgrade Program where sorcerers could invoke spells that allowed used fly fishing gear to regain some of the luster of it's youth.  the gear was then sold for astonishing prices throughout the known world.  Casey and Jon were the names of 2 of the affable, engaging and expert sorcerers. In short order the tall fly fisherman sent more than 20 spools,reels and rods to the LFF UP and they sold the gear to fly fisherman across the globe.  The story continues and the tall fly angler has new and advanced gear with poetic names like VXP, spey, Galvan and Rio which have graced waters in British Columbia, Mexico, Montana, the California Delta, Northern and Central California with the Amazon on the horizon...........

Steve of South Korea


I have just shipped my third (and probably not final!) batch of gear to the Leland Upgrade Program - what can I say, I wouldn't keep using it if it didn't work so well! Even though I live in Asia, it is still worthwhile for me to use the program - for starters, Leland make it so easy, I get exactly the same outcome as if I did it myself, but they do all the work, plus their status on eBay adds value to my goods when they sell. I have sold several rods, reels and spools and all have sold equally well, in some cases for more than I bought them for!

It's a great service, and it has allowed me to upgrade a rod and some reels to current models. Which fly fisherman doesn't like new gear??!!

Also the team at Leland is very efficient, provide great customer service and communicate well.






7/27/11
Mark of Fair Oaks Ranch, TX


I wanted to write and let you know that I have now sent you ALL of my older rods to be sold through Leland Upgrade. I am truly amazed at how well the upgrade program has worked for me. I have never heard of a better program for selling off older gear. I applaud your level of professionalism and knowledge regarding the upgrade program and it is certainly a pleasure to call you and discuss different ideas regarding fly gear. Additionally, I want to thank you for introducing me to the Red Truck Series fly rods. As you know, I was a bit skeptical of them in the beginning. As it stands today, I know of no better rod regardless of the price. Certainly the Red Truck rods are a great value but the "fishability" of these rods is second to none, regardless of the price. In short, I am absolutely thrilled with Red Truck rods. Also, I appreciate you sending the Red Truck Premium 5wt to my friend in such a timely manner. Keep up the great work. You guys have an amazing shop and an even better customer service package. I look forward to working with you in the future

The Leland Upgrade program: easy as heck, reliable, and a great excuse to visit the shop! I have used it on a number of occasions and have really
enjoyed it.  The guys are super professional, prompt, and very
knowledgeable!

Jerry of Edmond, OK


If you are an angler who wants to sell good stuff in order to get even better stuff, then Leland Upgrade is the only way to go.  Jon and the guys will prep your gear, take professional grade photos and list it in a manner that will guarantee top dollar.  Get serious, who has the time to sell gear?
Leave it to the professionals. You should be out on the water.  Thanks again to Jon and Casey.

Al of Excelsior, MN


Leland’s Upgrade Program is one of the finest services in fly fishing.  Take that reel you never use or the rod you want to upgrade and send it to Leland.  Their photographers and copywriters will present it on ebay, honestly describing it but putting it in the best possible light.  Sincerely, unless you’re a professional you can’t matching Leland’s presentation or the financial results.  The profit on the sale becomes a store credit, and you’re ready to go shopping. 




4/25/11
Gregg of Longmont, CO


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 Leland name.


Thanks, Gregg

Mark of Great Falls, MT


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 program.




4/4/11
Reverend Joel of Bradenton. FL


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 Bahamas.

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 everyone that no matter if you are selling or you are buying from Leland Upgrade 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"







2/12/11
Cole
of Pingree, ID


"Leland does an amazing job of taking  the hassle out of selling your gear.  I was impressed by the prices they got for my gear and the quality of service they offered.  They truly know what they're doing and don't charge any dumb fees or commission. They did a great job selling my old gear.  The other thing great about this program is that your store credit can literally get you any of the top gear in the fly fishing industry.  The bonus with this program is that Leland has some of the best customer service around.  Talking to them on the phone is just like walking into your local fly shop.  They are knowledgeable and caring and really want to make you happy with your purchase."

Brett
of San Rafael, CA


"I had heard good things about the Leland Upgrade Program (LUP) from my brother, who had taken advantage of the program several years ago. I had a closet full of 2-piece rods that were not likely to see the light of day again, so I decided to see if I could recycle them through the LUP. After receiving about 3 times the amount I had anticipated, I went back to the closet and pulled out bags of old reels from different phases of my fishing career, spanning the last 15 to 20 years. All of the items auctioned on eBay were professionally described and accurately rated for condition. Duplicate reels and spools were staggered to get maximum return. When it was all said and done, I netted about $5,000 from gear that was previously destined for the dust bin. The staff is very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. I highly recommend the LUP to everyone with unwanted or out of date gear - everybody wins."








12/08/10
Jon
of Canby, OR


"I could not be happier with the Leland Upgrade Program! Finally, a
guilt-free way to fish with the newest and latest gear. The guilt of leaving
perfectly usable gear in the closet just to fish with the latest gear kept
me from buying what I really wanted. Thanks to the Upgrade Program, no more gear guilt.

The help from the Leland staff has been nothing short of impressive. In
those rare instances that one of their staff doesn't know the answer, they
get me to a person who has the answer."

"I was a little hesitant about sending my gear across the country to be sold on ebay. However after dealing with the Leland staff on previous occasions I knew it was in good hands. The quality of their descriptions and photographs was great, and they even took the extra time to clean all my gear so it would turn top dollar. I ended up with more credit than I thought my old gear would receive. Constant email updates and contact through phone calls let me know I was in good hands and Leland's costumer service is second to none. I will not be hesitant in the future to go to Leland for any of my fly-fishing needs!"

of Shreveport, LA


"Like most fly fisherman, I have accumulated a lot of gear over the years
that - while fine when I bought it - has spent more time in the fishing
closet lately than on the water... Happily, I have recently discovered the
Leland Upgrade Program as a way to turn that lonely gear into money.
-
The program is simple - send your gear to Leland and they'll clean it up for you, sell it on Ebay and won't charge you a dime more than Ebay would charge you for selling it yourself - leaving you with top value for your gear in store credit at one of the top fly shops in the country.  Ariel and the entire Upgrade Team are pros whose specialty seems to be putting dollars in your pocket.
-
Once your gear is sold and you have your credit, you'll find the Leland staff is an invaluable resource for information on the replacement gear you need no matter where or how you fish. From the newest cutting edge technology to time-tested gear that evokes the rich tradition of our sport, the Leland staff can help you find exactly what you want and need."

Kent of Bedford, NH


So here I am in Bedford, New Hampshire wondering what to do with some quality fly-fishing gear that hasn't seen the water in just about two years. According to Mapquest my home is 3,128 miles away from your flagship store in San Francisco. That said having done business with you in the past via eBay I decided to take advantage of your upgrade program and let's just say I am so glad I did. From the very beginning Ariel Molina was tremendously helpful guiding me through the description and shipment process. As promised the shipping labels arrived via email, I shipped them from the local UPS Store and I was told my gear arrived safely. A few days later I checked out my gear on eBay under the Leland banner and I was stunned at the quality, professionalism and presentation of my gear on eBay and not only that one week later I was very very pleased with the result.

For anyone reading this email I have a little bit of advice for you, buy the best gear you can afford, take good care of your gear and if you ever want to upgrade or sell your gear use the Leland Upgrade Program!

L
arry of Grand Rapids, MI


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.”

 

06/06/10
Phil of San Diego, CA

 
Phil upgraded a handful of his collection of older model rods and reels.
 
After the sales were finished, he was impressed with the quality and professionalism of the service:
 
“I think your text and quality photos add more appeal to the eBay auction process than I could do on my own; plus, I think buyers feel more comfortable with a retailer than an individual,” Phil said. “As long as I keep fly fishing, I figure I could always use the credit at Leland. When I'm in SF, I always stop by to see what's new.”
 
After the credit was tallied, he picked up a new Scott S4 4-weight rod and a Simms Windstopper DL Jacket for the small streams and chilly weather in the High Sierra.

What is a Bonefish
The bonefish has been called the “silver bullet of the flats” and rightfully so. This member of the Elopiformes order and close relative of the tarpon possesses lightning quickness and race car speed. In open water these fish have been clocked at nearly 23 miles per hour. This astounding physical ability has helped the bonefish survive 125 million years of evolution, solidifying its place among the earth’s most ancient species.

Albula vulpes

Pieter Bleeker, 1859


“Bonefish fight so hard that they almost deserve to get away.”


- Pete Perinchief, former Director of Bermuda’s

Fishing Information Bureau, 1964





The bonefish has been called the “silver bullet of the flats” and
rightfully so. This member of the Elopiformes order and close relative
of the tarpon possesses lightning quickness and race car speed. In open
water these fish have been clocked at nearly 23 miles per hour. This
astounding physical ability has helped the bonefish survive 125 million
years of evolution, solidifying its place among the earth’s most ancient
species. The bonefish is also clever and cunning, its name, Albula vulpes, literally means “white fox.”



The bonefish was first discovered and named by famed Dutch
ichthyologist, Pieter Bleeker, in 1859. Bleeker’s contribution to the
study of fish was more than prolific during his 18 year stint as a
medical officer in the Dutch East Indian Army from 1842 to 1860; his
famous treatise Atlas Ichthyologique provides a laboriously detailed
account of his work in Indonesia and includes notes on the bonefish.



Bleeker’s bonefish are incredibly nimble and skittish creatures. Native to saltwater
flats environments, bonefish can be found in nearly every tropical body
of water on the globe. The recorded range of the bonefish is 45°N -
31°s, 159°w - 35°w. Yet, despite their common occurrence and widely
distributed range, bonefish remain a difficult set of silvery fins to
catch, owing to their selective feeding, nearly perfect camouflage,
360-degree eyesight, and flat out speed in open water. The unique
sporting challenge offered by bonefish has brought a host of eager fly
anglers to the tropics in search of adventure and the chance to catch a
silver bullet.



Bonefish are a curiously primitive looking species. Masters of illusion,
bonefish sport a highly reflective set of scales that function as an
array of tiny mirrors, reflecting quite accurately the fish’s
ever-changing environment. The narrow and muscular bonefish is also
built with a tapered nose, leading to an extremely powerful mouth. The
species uses this mouth to root for its food in the coral and on the
sandy bottom of the saltwater flats it calls home, crushing prey with
its hard palate.



Emerging on the skinny water of the saltwater flats during periods of
tidal flux, bonefish dine on a rich diet of clams, shrimp, and crabs,
and they will rarely pass up the opportunity to snare even smaller
critters such as saltwater worms, snails, and baitfish. Locally,
bonefish will vary their feeding habits, sometimes turning into the tide
to sniff out their prey and at other times following prey into the
tidal direction. Fly anglers should be sure to understand their local
quarry prior to stalking bonefish – a local fly shop or guide service
can be invaluable in the pursuit of these mirrored torpedoes.



Tropical saltwater flats are often only a few inches deep and don’t
offer feeding bonefish much protection or cover. When digging for their
meals, bonefish are often forced to expose a good portion of their tail
above the water. Subsequently, bonefish will often be found “tailing”
either in
pairs or in larger schools. To spot a tailing bonefish or group of
bonefish, look for their deeply forked tails just above the waterline,
flashing brilliantly in the sunlight. Saltwater fly anglers will tell
you that there is nothing more exciting than crouching near a thick
patch of turtle grass in the middle of an expansive tropical flat and
spotting the glittering flash of a school of tailing bonefish!



Despite the classic tailing give-away, merely spotting a bonefish can
present quite a frustrating challenge to a fly angler. Many saltwater
flats have sandy bottoms, but others are composed of the mottled browns,
greens, and gold of thick turtle grass, making it very difficult to
glimpse a well-camouflaged fish. Saltwater fly anglers also look for
“cruising” or “mudding” bonefish. When looking for a cruising fish or
school, watch for quick flashes and shadows along the bottom of the
flat. Mudding bonefish will produce clouds and wide plumes of gray sand
as they hunt and dig for their prey. Looking for such a mud spot will
often yield good results.



A good pair of polarized sunglasses with copper or yellow photochromatic
lenses will ease the strain of this challenge. (Experience in spotting
bonefish, or a guide perched atop the polling platform of a specialized
flats boat will also help!)



Bonefish are particularly aware of the perils of the thin water in which
they feed. Such heightened awareness renders these fish extremely
skittish at the slightest sign of danger. Fly anglers must take extreme
care not to frighten feeding bonefish. This means maintaining a low
profile, keeping rod tips on the water, and being prepared to make long, directed, and accurate casts in a number of challenging conditions.



Saltwater flats fishing requires a confident cast, tight attention to
fly presentations, and a good working knowledge of local water and tidal
conditions. Bonefishing requires all of these along with a heavy dose
of concentration. Fly anglers chasing bonefish will most often be sight
casting for their quarry. When sight casting for bonefish it is
extremely important to understand the delicate mix of water and wind
conditions and distance to the fish. If the wind is high, an angler may
need to use a shorter leader and a heavier 9 weight rod and line to turn
over the fly and lay down a sixty foot cast. If conditions are calm and
the saltwater flat is glassy, a 14 or 15 foot leader and a lighter 7
weight rod may be necessary to avoid spooking the fish during
presentation of the fly.  However, if you were to choose just one fly rod to tackle all conditions, it should be a 9' #8 fly rod.  Our favorite bonefish fly rod is the Loop Cross S1 Flatsman 890-4...controlled distance, accuracy and strength.



Because bonefish are so wary, it is important to understand how the fish
is moving and where to place a cast. Saltwater flats anglers will often
lead a feeding bonefish by a generous 15 feet or more. The key to
presenting a fly to a bonefish is to make the fly appear to be moving
away from the fish. This may sound difficult, but can easily be achieved
with a simple hook cast or reach cast – both well-practiced casts in
the arsenal of trout and freshwater anglers.



Stripping line after such a cast is also important. Experiment with
longer and shorter strips with different pacing; pause and give the fly a
slight jerk and then strip in more line. Local guides will have a
favored technique and will tell you just what to do when you’ve spotted a fish and placed that perfect cast.



Hooksetting should also not be overlooked. Be sure to set the hook
firmly with a confident strip set as soon as you feel the subtle tug of a
bonefish at the end of the line. Freshwater anglers making the
transition to salt commonly make the mistake of lifting the rod tip
vertically to set the hook. This technique may work on Montana’s great
and storied Madison for big browns, but it won’t hook a bonefish. (Too
many anglers have bought their guides rounds of drinks back at the lodge
for lifting the tip instead of using a solid strip set. Don’t be a
statistic!)



For efficient fly delivery and better hook sets, the proper fly line is very important when bonefishing.  The Airflo Ridge Bonefish fly line
is the best fly line on the market today for saltwater flats fishing. 
With a patented coating of polyurethane, which is impervious to bug
repellant and sunscreen, this particular fly line will last many hard
seasons.  All other fly lines are constructed of PVC material and don't
react well to the likes of bug spray and sun screen.  The low-stretch
core of the Airflo Bonefish line provides more efficient casts.  And,
when "strip-setting" on a bonefish, this low-stretch core makes for
solid hook sets. 



Bonefish will readily take a well-presented fly, and will make several
long runs, usually taking a fly angler 150 yards deep into the backing.
Generally a bonefish will make about as many long, straight runs as its
weight in pounds. A 2-pound fish will make 2 long runs and a 4-pounder
will take you and your reel for a spin about 4 times. This is not by any
means a hard and fast rule, but something to keep in mind when it’s
time to strip set the hook and play that fish!



A raft of creative fly patterns has arrived on the tails of the bonefish
craze. Synthetics, foam, and flashy materials offer fly tiers a new
world of possible creations to toss into the salt. Crazy Charlies and
Bonefish Candy are effective patterns from Christmas Island to Los
Roques. One of the hottest and most productive bonefish flies around is
Bonefish Bitters, a modern epoxy-headed crustacean imitation developed
by Craig Matthews in the 1980s. Classics like the Gotcha and the
Bonefish Scampi as well as myriad crab patterns will also yield good
results on the saltwater flats.



Bonefish have provided fly anglers of all stripes and backgrounds with a
new and salty world of mystery, information, and excitement. Freshwater
anglers have enjoyed the challenge of learning new rigging, casting
techniques, and traveling to warmer more tropical destinations.
Saltwater anglers have enjoyed advancing the sport of fooling bonefish
with a fly and pushing the limits of saltwater flats fishing. Bonefish
are special creatures, and according to fly fishing legend, Lefty Kreh,
if left with only one choice, the bonefish would be his target. That’s
quite a bold marketing pitch, and one we’re hard-pressed to disagree
with.

What is your Returns/Exchange policy?

We call it the FISH ON RETURN POLICY or FORP. If you buy something and if it falls short of your expectations in any way, or you just want to demo an item for 59 days and you did not fall in love, FORP it. Just send it back. This policy is good for 60 days after you receive a product, and it has virtually no restrictions. Rods, reels, waders, clothes, luggage, accessories. No Questions Asked. We're not happy unless you are. Simple as that. . . Fish On!!
The only exceptions to our FORP policy are special order or custom items and items on sale.  Our address for returns and exchange:


Leland Fly Fishing Company 
Attn: Exchange/Returns Dept.
24120 Arnold Drive

Sonoma, CA 94578


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.

How long until my bank issues return credit?

A note on Credit Card Companies: In more than twenty five years of retail experience, we've seen that some banks and credit card companies are a bit slower in issuing credits to your account than they are in debiting it. As such, two charges might appear on your online statement or account balance for a brief period of time while your bank or credit card company goes through the credit-issuing process.

Do I have to pay sales tax?

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.

Click here to return to the top.

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.
