MOBILE PHONE USERS

The pro portal application process is not yet optimized for mobile phones.  While you will have the ability to complete the process on your mobile device, there may be layout and formatting issues that make things more difficult for you.  For best results, a laptop or desktop computer is recommended.

PRO PORTAL PROGRAM

Thank you for your interest in the Rajeff Sports Pro Portal Program!  The Pro Portal program is an extension of our sales team and marketing efforts, and program participation is managed by these teams.  This program is primarily for licensed Guides & shop employees. Select fishing/outdoor industry professionals are approved on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the regional sales rep for your area.  When applying, please understand beforehand that most applications that are not for licensed guides or shop employees are not approved without a sales rep or industry affiliate referral.

Since we are not a direct-to-consumer company, we rely on our fly shops to sell our products to retail consumers.  This program’s purpose is to help spread awareness of ECHO, AIRFLO, and AIR-LOCK products, and to help drive business to our fly shops through your efforts.

Your application will be reviewed by our marketing department and/or your regional sales rep, depending on your qualifications.  We work closely with our regional sales reps to make decisions regarding pro portal applicants.

Please respect our program guidelines and provide all necessary documentation so that we can continue to offer these discount programs to you and your business.

Guides & Charters

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Certified Casting Instructors

Certified casting instructors are eligible to one pro portal purchase per year.

 

Acceptable forms of verification:

  • CCI Certificate

Lodges

If you run a lodge operation and are planning to purchase rods and lines for the entire operation’s use, we have a separate program for these purchases.  Our Pro Portal program is for individual guides to outfit their personal needs.  For lodge purchases, please email or call us directly to set up your lodge purchase account.  Your lodge’s participation may be at the discretion of your regional sales rep.
