Christmas is only a few days away. A lot of us have completed our shopping and are ready to go. For those of you who are still pondering what to get for the Fly Angler in your life, here are four gifts very thoughtful, practical gifts for anyone who enjoys fly fishing.
We reviewed the Patagonia Foot Tractor Boot. You can read it by clicking here. Since our review, several of our guides and staff have started using this boot. It’s comfortable, the aluminum plates bite well, and the placement makes it even more grippy by adding a little flex to the sole. This boot makes for an excellent replacement for felt boots anywhere.
We admit Abel Nippers are expensive. But if you don’t lose them, they’ll be the last nippers you’ll ever buy. The Abel Nippers makes an excellent gift for the Fly Angler, good design, including an inner jaw hook eye cleaner and replaceable, flat-faced blades. Check your local fly shop for availability.
Leader material is like socks and underwear. You need it, but sometimes you hate buying it. That is why they make great gifts for the Fly Angler. You can’t fly fish without a leader. Any Fly Angler will appreciate a box or set of Leader Wheels.
Last but not least, If you don’t know anything about fly fishing, and you don’t want to get anything from our extensive, well-thought-out, and exhaustive list, then you always have the powerful gift card from your local fly shop. Gift cards are simple and thoughtful enough that they don’t count as a cop-out. Because you know…they like fly fishing, so why not? If they can’t appreciate a gift card, send it to us. We’ll take it.
There you go. Christmas is just a few days away, and if you still need to get a gift for the Fly Angler in your life, you’re cutting it close. And look, if you order something, but it won’t make it before Christmas this year, at least it will be on time for next year.
