There is nothing better than seeing the smile on someone’s face when getting some type of fly fishing gear as a gift! When I buy a gift for a friend or family member that is an angler, I always try to think about what would I like to get for myself. If i want it, chances are they want it too. Here are some of the best fly fishing gifts for the beginner or any angler.
Let’s take a look at my best fly fishing gear for gifts that any angler would love to have
One favorite gifts I love to get is a cool T-shirt. One of our local fly shops always comes up with clever saying that look great on a shirt and lets face it who doesn’t want a cool shirt.
A nice jacket is always welcome as a gift. If you choose wisely and get a stylish jacket that works well while fishing and can also double as a nice jacket you could wear to a sports outing or even to the store, then you will have scored as a gift giver my friend.
Every angler loves a good fishing bag. It’s a great way to keep all their fishing equipment organized and in one place. If it’s a dry bag it will also keep their fly fishing gear dry and these also come in handy if you like to fish out of a drift boat.
A new pair of fishing glasses never disappoints. It’s always nice to have an extra pair or even two on hand, just incase. Don’t forget that polarized work best when on the water. I know anglers that always have at least two pair of sunglasses with them anytime they are fishing.
Wading pants are something that I have, that I don’t actually need to fish with but they are sure cool to have. When it’s not always necessary to completely gear up but it would be nice just to have that extra comfort from the early morning cold as well as a little more protection, well wading pants are great to have. This is a fantastic gift for the serious angler and I’m sure they will love it.
A great gift for someone that wants to get started in the great sport of fly fishing is a fly fishing rod and reel combo package. This is how a lot of anglers get started that are on a budget. There are great starter packages that have just about everything needed to get on the water. Most packages come with a rod and reel, fly line, a leader and a rod case. How exciting would it be to open a gift to find out the gift giver put a bunch of thought into this great gift? Check out the rod and reel combo page to get all the details about these packages.
If you find yourself shopping for that angler that doesn’t yet have wading boots then that would be a fantastic gift. Wading boots are awesome to have and we think that if you check out our suggestions on our wading boot page you can find the perfect boot that will fit any budget.
Don’t forget about the angler who either needs their first pair of waders or just
needs to upgrade. For the beginner angler this could give them the opportunity to do some fishing in weather that they normally wouldn’t be able to. If they just need an upgrade then this gift could blow them out of the water. To look at our suggestions and great options check out our fishing waders page.
