Fly Fishing Gift Ideas
Fly fishing is much more than just a rod, fly, water and fish.
Don't scoff. This is true and gives you plenty of fly fishing
gift ideas for Christmas presents.
1. Wading Staff - Picture it in your mind. A clear, green river
flowing through majestic trees. The sun filtering through the
leaves of the shadowy banks. A fly fisherman wading out into the
stream...slipping and falling on his butt in the water. Ahhh, it
was going so well! A Fly Fishing Wading Staff can keep derrieres
dry by giving you something to support yourself while walking
across wet rocks and slimy things in the deep. Typical staffs
retract into a shorter stub for easy packing. Expect to pay
between $40 and $60 for something of solid construction. A great
fly fishing gift.
2. Quick Seine Nets - Ask a fly fisher about how to pick the
best fly for a location and you'll get a lecture on nymphs. By
nymphs, I mean the insects, not the randy historical figures.
With fly fishing, insects tell the story on rivers. The Quick
Seine Nets are tailored to help fisherman quickly and easily
analyze the insect population at a fishing spot. The nets act
like a sieve in the water and let you scoop up the local insect
population. The size of a racquetball racket, you can free hand
them or attach them to your fish nets. Quick Seine Nets come in
a few sizes, but cost no more than $25. Just plug the name into
a search engine to see the selection.
3. The Trout King - This book is the equivalent of the Shootout
at the O.K. Corral for fly fishing enthusiasts. The story
revolves around a fly fishing tournament in an out of the way
location. The undefeated local angler goes against an out of
town visitor. Both hate to lose. The friendly competition turns
serious and the pages just start flipping buy. You can buy it
online at any bookstore for $15 or so.
4. Nomad Fly Fishing Journals - A little self-promotion here.
Nomad Fly Fishing Journals are compact writing journals that let
anglers keep notes on their efforts. They can note the fishing
conditions, which flies worked the best, who the fished with and
notes on what they should do differently next time. You can
click the link at the bottom of this article to see the journals
and expect to pay $25 for the journal and waterproof case.
Frankly, it is pretty hard to go wrong when buying fly fishing
gifts. Any of the above fly fishing gift ideas will make great
