RENTAL AND DEMO RODS FOR YELLOW DOG CUSTOMERS
Heading to a new destination and in need of a specific rod and reel set-up that you don’t currently own? Maybe a heavy 12-weight for GTs, or a 9-weight jungle outfit for Golden Dorado? While Yellow Dog always recommends that you purchase your new gear and equipment from a Yellow Dog-affiliated specialty fly shop (see our list of recommended shops) we also appreciate the fact that stocking up and sourcing multiple rod/reel/line set-ups can be pricey. Which is why if you’re headed to a new destination or focusing on a particular species for the first time, it may make sense to actually RENT a package to use for your specific trip dates.
To that end, Yellow Dog has teamed up with Rent This Rod – the industry’s premier source for outfitting clients with premium rental fly rod and reel outfits. Rent This Rod proudly features product lines that include Thomas & Thomas Rods, Hatch Reels, Ross Reels, and Scientific Anglers fly lines: new, top-of-the-line set-ups that are perfectly balanced and completely matched to each destination and the species you’re pursuing. Rentals are available for either 10 or 14-day blocks, and all equipment is shipped and insured directly to your location prior to your trip. Rent This Rod is the perfect option for anglers who are traveling to fishing locations outside of their norm who don’t already own regionally-specific or species-specific equipment. Remember that your rental period doesn’t include the time that the rod is in transit. You’ll have a solid 10 or 14-day period to fish and enjoy your Rent This Rod set-ups.
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:
1. CLICK HERE to contact Rent This Rod with your destination, trip dates and equipment requests
2. Select a 10 or 14-day rental period.

4. Fish the equipment for the duration of your trip and simply return the set-ups once you are home.
Yellow Dog has provided Rent This Rod with detailed recommendations and specific gear set-ups for each and every destination that we book and offer, which means that you can utilize your pre-trip materials from Yellow to decide exactly what you need, or simply contact Rent This Rod with a quick email and they’ll do the work for you. It’s just that easy! Complete 10-day combo package rentals (rod, fly reel and line) are $180 total, which of course includes the front-end shipping and handling charges. And best of all?
