|Christmas is a wonderful time of the year unless you're having
problems coming up with gift ideas. Here are a few fly fishing
Okay, I'll be the first one to admit publicly that buying gifts
for the holidays can be a pain in derriere. When it comes right
down to it, how well do you know someone and how do you know
what he or she likes? Buying for kids is great because you can
always peak at the letter to Santa. Unfortunately, most adults
have given up writing to Santa and you really don't want to read
through there other letters. Fortunately, this isn't a problem
if you are buying for a fly fishing enthusiast.
Fly Fishing Gifts
Fly fishing is an extremely popular sport and a good way to
become one with nature. Of course, you probably don't care about
any of that. Instead, you want to know what you should buy for
guy or gal in your life that loves to go fly fishing. Well, here
are a few ideas.
1. Flies - You lucky dog, the top gift you can give a fly
fisherman is a fly. Flies are the "bait" that go on the end of
the line and are used to attract fish. Flies come in a variety
of types and forms. The most basic are Nymphs and Mayflies,
which mimic a type of bug that lives in rivers and is considered
fine dining by bass and other fish. You can expect to pay a
couple of bucks per fly, so feel free to buy more than one.
2. Local Specialty Fly - Okay, this will take a bit of effort on
your part. Every fishing area has a specialty fly that is known
to have fish leaping out of the water before casting even
begins. Since the exact fly varies from location to location,
you need to stop by a local fishing store and ask for advice.
Try to pick a beat up looking shop with gentlemen of an older
persuasion. They'll talk your ear off, but you'll get something
3. Fly Station - Okay, this is going to be a more costly item. A
fly station looks like a small desk and for a good reason. The
fly station is where your beloved angler will sit and create his
or her own flies. Part of the allure of fly fishing is tying
your own flies and fly stations are built for this purpose. You
can expect to pay as low as $75 and as high as anyone has the
never to charge.
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.
If you're looking for fly fishing gifts, consider yourself
lucky. The equipment tends to be inexpensive and last a very
