Don’t know what holiday gifts to get the angler in your life? Here are some some ideas for her, for him, the serious angler and the hobbyist.
Neck Gaiter (unisex- $15-$40)
If you know an angler who does not have a neck gaiter-this is a must-have gift! Available in a variety of fabrics, thickness and designs, the neck gaiter is the most versatile and functional apparel piece on the market today. The neck gaiter protects anglers from the sun and wind and is so versatile it can be worn in more than a dozen ways. I wear one everywhere I go fishing in both hot and cold climates. Available at most outdoor sporting stores.
Mystery Tackle Box (unisex – $15-$180)
The angler in your life will get a monthly gift with a collection of lures from top brands based on the species of fish they prefer. The Mystery Tackle Box can be purchased as a one time gift ( $15.00), 3-month membership ($45), 6-month membership ($90) or a one- year membership ($180).
Shimano Lipstix Rod (for her – $20-$80)
The Shimano Lipstix Rod is on my gift list!! Shimano Lipstix Rods specifically cater to the growing female angling market with 6 models for a terrific range of fishing applications including two graphite models. The rods come in sophisticated and attractive pink or purple colors. But, don’t let the fun colors fool you – these rods are made from tough ergonomic graphite steel that can take on even the most aggressive fish!
Finn Utility Essex Sidebag & Four Reel Case (for him – $209–bag /$120 reel case)
This high quality, handmade bag from Finn Utility is constructed of English bridle leather, waxed canvas, brass details and waxed twill. This handsome bag is both functional and durable. The accompanying Four Reel Case is a high quality gift for the serious flycaster.
Fisherman Forecaster Weather Station (unisex – $49)
Fisherman’s weather station by La Crosse Technology® and offered by Windandweather.com tracks daily weather conditions including temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. The alternating fisherman icons appear in different gear depending on conditions.
Light my Fire Swedish FireKnife (unisex – $40)
This versatile knife from Industrial Revolution is a multi-use tool for anglers, especially those who do a lot of outdoor camping and hiking to their locations. This knife has a razor-sharp, stainless steel blade and high-friction rubber handle. Tucked into the handle is a fire starter that can start a spark regardless of damp conditions or altitude. The sheath clips right to your belt or bag. The knife is available in 5 colors.
Sage Method Humidor (for him – $50)
For the angler who enjoys a cigar to accompany a day on the water, the Sage Method Humidor by Sagefly.com keeps stogies protected from moisture. Crafted with an aluminum shell, gasket cap and cedar insert, this gadget is fun and functional.
Antique lures (unisex – prices varied)
Looking for something truly unique? An antique lure is the perfect gift. You can find vintage lures on eBay.com and Etsy.com or through private collectors. You can likely find lures that have a documented history providing its new owner a snapshot of the fishing tales it has to tell. This sentimental gift is truly one of a kind.
Gear Wrapz & Strap (unisex – $5)
Wrap, bundle and organize all of your fishing gear with this gift by Alliance Rubber Company. This is a great stocking stuffer. Simple and inexpensive (starting at $5) the Gear Wrapz & Strap lets you secure rafts, rods, coolers and has a thousand other uses.

Let this be the last holiday you have to deal with wet, cold waders. The Wader Peet Tall Dryer safely dries waders by circulating warm air. Protect your equipment and enjoy the comfort of a dry boot when you head out for another day on the water.
