HOW IT WORKS

Bring your current, factory-built Sage fly-rod to our shop, or post it to us if you are not based in the greater Johannesburg area. We will evaluate the condition of your rod and determine its second hand value. Once we have determined the rod’s second hand value and both parties (Frontier Fly Fishing and the seller) have agreed on a maximum (and minimum) resale value, we will attempt to sell the rod at the highest value that we have determined the rod is worth. Once we have sold your rod the value can be offset against the cost of a new, factory-built Sage fly-rod. This trade-in programme is only available for factory-built Sage fly-rods. Once we have sold your current rod, the value we have managed to obtain for the rod can only be used to offset the price of a new model, factory-built Sage fly-rod.

Casting is at the heart of what distinguishes fly-fishing from other forms of fishing. Before you ingrain bad habits, learn to cast properly – it will change your fly-fishing forever. Frontier Fly Fishing offers casting lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced casters. Whether you have never held a fly-rod before or just have a little niggle that needs ironing out, our team of experienced casting instructors will have you casting like a pro in no time at all. Lessons are one hour long and are conducted on the grounds of St. Stithians College during weekdays from 9am – 4pm.

Should you wish to arrange a casting lesson please call the shop +27 11 4639048 to arrange one with a staff member.
