APPLICATION FOR MISC INDUSTRY AFFILIATES
FISHING GUIDES PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS APPLICATION
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.
Our program is open to full time outdoor professionals, journalists, and other unique situations on a case-by-case basis. These qualifications are all at the discretion of the regional sales rep for your area, and approvals can take extra time to evaluate. Our program qualification guidelines have been narrowed as of 2017, so previous qualifying positions may no longer be eligible. Please understand this program is for licensed, full time guides and employees of our dealers. Any other qualifications will be at the discretion of the local sales rep. We can make no guarantees or likelihood of any application approvals for other types of applications.
Acceptable forms of verification:
- Pay Stub
- Executive referral
- Rajeff Sports sales team referral
The following qualifications typically are not approved on their own. However, if you feel you should be considered, you can have your local Rajeff Sports Products dealer or regional sales representative approve/endorse your application. This program is all about connections to fly shops/dealers, so establishing that connection is essential.
- Wildlife Department employees**
- Social media gurus
- Competition team members
Not valid for Pro Portal verification:
- Social media accounts
- Business Cards
- Fish photos
If your application is not approved, we would be happy to help you find a local fly shop to purchase our products from. Application denial is not a reflection of our feelings toward your position or your contribution to fish, fisheries, or the fishing community. At Rajeff Sports, we have continued to support fly shops first, and have not implemented a “direct-to-consumer” business model. Because of this, our list of qualifications for who we are able to sell to directly is very small. We appreciate your understanding and are happy to answer any questions you may have. If your local dealer contacts us approving your program status (if you were denied), your application will be reconsidered.
**for Biologists and Wildlife Department employees: if your application is not approved, we are often able to get your agency set up with an account for department/agency use. Due to industry-wide changes in pro purchase programs, individual purchases for rods/reels/lines are typically no longer permitted.
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
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.
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.
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.
