Fishing Gift Guide

Finding the right gift for the fishers in you life is easy.

Amazon has a huge selection of Fishing gear in all price ranges and for all varieties of fishers.

Fish Landing Net

There is a Under $25, $25-$50, $50-$100 and an over $100 tab to help focus your search in the proper price range.

In the under $25 category, I would recommend checking out the Frabill Folding Net with Telescoping Handle. This net combines the ability to collapse the net for easier handling and storage on the boat and in the house or garage in the off season.

Frabill Tangle - Free Rubber Landing NetThe Frabil’s biggest claim to fame is the netting material which is designed to cause less harm to the fish. This makes catch and release more successful as the netting material is less likely to damage fish scales and their natural protective slime. This this net is good for both the fisher and the fish.

Frabil makes a wide assortment of nets, in many sizes and with some additional features. This basic net is more than adequate for most occasional fishers, but you may want to check for additional links to see other Frabil products.


Spin Casting Rod & Reel

In the $25-$50 category, a great choice would be the Okuma VS-605-20 Voyager Spinning Travel Kit.

Here is a take with you rod and reel you can stash in the trunk and/or stash in the overhead and have ready to use whenever you happen to find time on the road to wet a line. Inexpensive but capable.

Underwater Camera

In the $100 Plus range, the options multiply. On the top of many dream lists would be a Marcum VS825SD Underwater Camera with 8 inch screen.  We have posted from time to time videos showing images from down below. Always fascinating and educational.

More Good Ideas

Another Good Idea would be an Ice Augers but they can be expensive. More down to earth would be a fishing shirt. And they all would love to have more fishing lures to add to their tackle boxes.
