We can help you in all of these areas. Reach out to us and let us show you what we can do.




Gear-Up Trade In Program

Our Gear-Up trade in program is a huge hit. That's because it's a lot different than the other upgrade programs out there. We don’t become your eBay minions. We make you an offer on your gear so you can get your new stuff now, not weeks from now.


Here’s how it works, drop you gear off at the shop, or fill out this form (right hand click on it to save it when you're done) and email it to us with some photos of the gear you're trading in.


We’ll review it and shoot you back an offer. If you like what you hear just send us the gear and we'll credit your store account for that amount and your off shopping. It’s just that simple. Now here’s the fine print…


The gear when received must be as described and photographed. Guided trips, used items and sale items are excluded. No cash will be tendered. 


Free Gear Inspection

When spring shows up its time to get the gear out and give it the once over.


Bring it in the shop and we'll tune it up for you at no charge. We'll clean and grease your reels and inspect and clean your lines too. We'll also inspect and repair any pinholes in your waders (you buy the glue). And don't forget your fly rods - bring 'em in and we'll inspect and clean those as well.


Time to dust off the gear and get down to

Real Estate Services

We have some very deep real estate roots. One of our co-owners, Jeffrey Gardner is 38 year veteran of real estate brokerage, development, syndication and finance business. He put the group together back in 2008 to purchase our digs on the river and since then we’ve discovered something that’s very unique. Through our day to day business operations we’ve become friends with a lot of great people who happen to own some great river front properties, as well as those who want to own one.

Over the past couple of years this “below the radar” network resulted in several real estate transactions along with some very happy sellers & buyers. Then the light bulb went off… let’s formalize this to provide real estate brokerage services for this unique niche – only river front properties. We know the river, we know the owners and we know who wants to own their special place on the river.


So Old Au Sable Properties/Au Sable River Realty was born. We’re limiting our work to waterfront and water access properties while employing some very unique marketing techniques.


Mark Bear, Realtor and exclusive agent for Au Sable Outdoors LLC, has been practicing real estate for 10 years in the Grayling region. His professional approach, knowledge of the watershed, and passion for the outdoors provide the perfect combination in assisting Buyers and Sellers requiring real estate services.


Mark has spearheaded our roll out including our website at There you can see our exclusive offerings along with all the other properties currently on the market.


If you’re contemplating selling your waterfront property or want to finally get one, drop us an email.


Fly Fishing Collection Brokerage

Over the past several years we've become known as the place to go to for selling fly fishing equipment collections.


Fine bamboo rods and many other fly fishing collectables are in very high damand and with our circle of contacts we can bring you top dollar.


Please reach out to us to go over what you have, you just may be pleasantly surprised.
