If you know someone who is a keen fisherman, you probably want to buy them fly fishing gifts for birthdays, or Christmas. But if you don’t fish yourself, you may not have a clue where to start. Here are some ideas for fly fishing gifts that you could give.
Fishing is an expensive hobby and good quality storage boxes and tackle bags are among the most useful gifts that you can give. As well as providing a place to keep fishing tackle, they help to prolong the life of expensive equipment.
The sun’s glare in your eyes can really spoil a day on the water. So a pair of polarized sunglasses is a gift that is sure to be appreciated, especially during the summer months.
A Magazine Subscription
Fishing addicts tend to live and breathe their sport. Even when they are not actually out there they are thinking about it and looking forward to their next trip. And a subscription to a fishing magazine is one of the fly fishing gifts that your friend or loved one will look forward to receiving each month.
The right clothing for fishing is essential, but it can also be expensive. There are many items of fly fishing clothing that will really be appreciated, according to your budget. Consider items like waterproof and windproof fly fishing hats, braces, fisherman’s gloves, fishing jackets and fly fishing vests and socks.
DVD’s make great fly fishing gifts for any fly fisher and a huge range are available, from beginner’s guides, to specialist guides. You can also get action packed DVD’s on fishing trips to exotic locations throughout the world. While they may not sound appealing to you, these DVD’s will really be appreciated by fishing enthusiasts.
Fly Selection Boxes
While mere mortals would probably prefer chocolate, a fly fishing selection box is more likely to make a fisherman drool. A huge number of these boxes are available. You can get general ones, containing different types of fly, or specialist ones for catching particular types of fish.
You may think your favourite fishing nut has every piece of fishing equipment available. But there are so many fishing gadgets available that it would be impossible for even the enthusiast to keep up. Consider a multi-tool fishing knife, a knot tier, or a wind up mini torch.
