 We will be waiting for the item and will issue an immediate credit to your credit card account or...... you may leave the money on store account for future purchases. If we don't hear otherwise, the refund will go back on the exact card used for the transaction. * If an item was not purchased via the phone or the purchase was made more than 30 days previous,  we will need to contact you to secure a means of credit.

Backorder Information

If by chance an item that you have ordered from us is on Back Order, which means we are out of it or the vendor that makes it is out of it, we will alert you via e-mail, and your "Order Notes" in your customer profile, as soon as possible, and let you know an anticipated ship date if possible.

Please be aware that this does happen and is a natural occurrence in the world of retail. You may keep the item on order and we will ship it as soon as we receive it, or you can cancel the order at any time.

We will ship and charge the in-stock items as usual. A backorder report will also be included with your order as a reminder!

Then, unless we hear otherwise, the backordered items will be charged and shipped once they arrive. * If the backorder item brings the order below the $50.00 Free Shipping mark, we will still offer the free shipping on the existing order and the backorder item(s) as well. We try to be fair as long as you do! ** Remember that no item is ever charged to your credit card/account until it is shipped!

Please...if you have any questions, e-mail us or call us and we'll be happy to help and always remember to check your order notes! Just click on your name!

Gift Card FAQ


Mad River Outfitters gift cards are perfect for avid anglers and outdoors folk. Our gift cards are redeemable online, in store and by phone. 

To use your gift card online simply write the # of the card in the "Order Notes" section when you check out and we'll apply the certificate towards your purchase.
You must use a credit card number, however, it will only be used if you spend more than your gift card amount.


If you spend less, we will apply the balance to your account here at the store for future purchases and NOT charge your card.


When purchasing a gift card, please indicate if you want us to e-mail the certificate to you. Write in the notes section when you check out if it should be emailed.
