Buy, Sell or Trade

We buy, sell or trade used and antique fishing equipment rods, reels, lines, duck and fish decoys, fishing lures, books, artwork, collectibles and tying materials/tools. If you are looking to trade in, sell, or are just scaling down as they say, bring your items in or take pictures and email them to us and we will happily purchase or offer a trade up. I have been purchasing and selling used and collectible items for over 25 years and our fishing/hunting library in the store is the finest and largest probably in the country. We will happily show you the value of your items and then offer trade-in or purchase prices. So give us a call (860-672-1010) or send and email ( We also purchase estates and will gladly come over to your house to assess the value of your collection and purchase the entire collection.

Equipment Rentals

Whether it's a day of fishing or a hike through the snowy woods we can outfit you with the gear you need to make it a great day. If you'd like to try out some of the wonderful activities the Northwest Hills of Connecticut has to offer before you buy a bunch of gear, come see us. All of our rentals are available at affordable, daily rates. Fishing and snowshoe rentals are available at the last minute and are fulfilled on a "first come, first serve basis." All rod and reel rentals come ready to fish, but things like specialty fly lines, leaders and tippets are not included and will need to be purchased separately. Our staff will be sure to get you properly equipped.
