APPLICATION FOR FISHING GUIDES, CHARTERS, and OUTFITTERS

Please read the application and guidelines in their entirety before submitting.  Failure to do so may result in your application not being properly submitted and/or processed.

Due to exceptional circumstances and it being renewal season: Expect up to a few weeks for application processing.

The Rajeff Sports Pro Portal program is primarily for full time guides and charters to outfit their personal operations.  All guide and charter members must have current documentation on file at Rajeff Sports to keep their Pro Portal Access active.  When your account is due for renewal, we ask that you take a few minutes to complete a new application with current documents.  All pro portal renewals or new applications must send their most current documents without exception.

Note:  Affiliation with a Rajeff Sports dealer may be required in some regions at the sales rep’s discretion.  Dealer affiliation is not always a requirement, but lack of affiliation may lead to additional correspondence to determine eligibility.

 

Acceptable forms of verification:

  • Guide license
  • Captain’s license
  • Current business license
  • Echo/Airflo dealer referral
  • Sales rep referral

Applications that do not include at least one of the above will not be processed or considered.  Some applications may require additional documents or referrals.

Please understand that just having a guide license or other documentation may not always be enough to be admitted or renewed to the program.  Please include enough information in your application to show that you are running or are part of an operation that will get Rajeff Sports products in to the hands of clients.  Showing fly shop affiliations, a history of well-booked seasons, and a quality client experience will ensure a strong application for discount privileges.  Not all applications are approved for a number of reasons, and all applications are considered on a case-by-case basis.

We know and understand that some locations have no guide license requirement.  For these guide operations, we still require documentation to show the guide operation is a legal business.

 

Not valid for Pro Portal verification (These can, however, be included to help strengthen your application):

  • Websites
  • Social media accounts
  • Business Cards
  • Videos
  • Fish photos
  • Calendars

Large files: Sometimes this system will not accept larger files. If you are experiencing this error, please submit your application with no file attached and email your verification docs to evan@rajeffsports.com separately

PRO PORTAL GUIDELINES

At Rajeff Sports, we happily support the fly fishing industry through our dealer network and by supporting fishing guides and industry professionals.  As a member of our Pro Portal, we ask that you please abide by these guidelines.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

 

Purchases are for you and you alone

Items purchased through the Pro Portal are for your own personal and guide operation use only.  Purchasing for friends, gifts, and for resale are strictly prohibited.

Resale sites and forums are monitored.  Any attempt to publicly re-sell items purchased through this program are grounds for immediate and permanent removal from the program.

All Sales are Final

Returns/exchanges will only be accepted for items that we sent to you incorrectly.  Defective items must be processed through our warranty department:  http://www.echoflyfishing.com/warranty

 

NOTE:  It is essential that members review our warranty policy, and know that certain pro portal purchases may not be covered by warranty due to the nature of the program.  Members who abuse our warranty program will be removed from discount purchasing.

Ordering Must be done online

All Pro Portal members must order online.  No phone, email, or walk-in orders are permitted.

Your Discount Privileges are Confidential

While we’re just as stoked as you to have you on the program, and encourage spreading the word about our brands, we ask you do not share your discount status with others:  especially non-qualifying members and dealers.  Bragging to a dealer that you receive discounts is grounds for immediate removal from the program.

Purchase Limits

We have no official purchase limits for our Pro Portal products.  However, if there is what appears to be excessive purchasing of certain products, your account may be temporarily deactivated so we can talk about your purchases to make sure they’re being purchased for your personal/business use.  After this discussion, if everything looks good, we will activate your account again.  This will typically happen when upwards of 5+ Echo rods, or $500+ in Airflo lines are purchased within a calendar year.

Be advised:  You may be asked to show a photo of purchased items to verify they are in your possession.

Professionalism Matters

Program members and applicants who conduct themselves in an unprofessional manner on the water or in their correspondence with us, our dealers, or other brands are subject to possible disqualification.

Program members and applicants may be removed or denied from the program without warning.  We reserve the right to deny access to our program privileges from anyone whom we deem unqualified for any reason.
