Used Gear & Equipment Rentals

 

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 (hflyshop@aol.com). 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.

We offer full rod repair service. Bring in your favorite old rods and Tom will repair them and have you fishing them again shortly. He can repair bamboo, graphite and glass rods; from a missing guide to full rod wrapping and finishing Tom has you covered. Tom can also replace your grip or restore your cork so it looks new again. Rod repair services are not done on the premises, but drop off your rod and he will have it back to you in a timely manner.

Snowshoeing

We rent snowshoes and there are plenty of public trails nearby. Many of these are very scenic. Snowshoeing is great fun, great exercise, and you can really enjoy the natural beauty around you in the wild. They forecast a "true" New England winter this year so it may be the right season to get started in this great sport. Renting is a great way to try out the sport before you buy. We also offer snowshoes for sale if you decide to take it up.

We also do group outings for snowshoeing. Give us a call or send an email and we will gladly work with you and your group to make it a memorable day out in the quiet corner of Connecticut.
