The Best Sun Protection Accessory – Buff


This is more of a stocking stuffer, but still, something that an angler would greatly appreciate.

All anglers appreciate a fresh buff. They are easy to buy, one size fits all, and have plenty of amazing colors to choose from.

Any serious angler would love to receive a buff of any color this coming Christmas.

Fishing Reel: Penn Battle 3

Penn Battle Fishing Reel

The Penn Battle 3 is by far one of the most popular workhorse reels that any angler of any experience level will appreciate. A great addition to any angler’s arsenal.

Full metal construction, 13kg of drag power, a wide range of sizes for different fishing applications and a great value packed real for its price.

Waterproof Speaker – UE Wonderboom 2

Everybody loves music. And having music on the boat has never been more accessible to everyone.

Waterproof Bluetooth speakers and a smartphone are all you need to get the beats pumping. Put up an adrenalin-pumping tune as the boat is about to push off and all will be frothing to start fishing, generating energy and morale after waking up early in the morning.

Once everyone gets fished out, a relaxing song can get everyone to appreciate that you are in an awesome location with friends new and old. After fishing, some barbeque music will be well appreciated around the campfire while having some cold beers after dinner.

The UE Wonderboom 2 may be small but packs a definitive punch! At just 425 grams, you won’t hesitate to always have this in your bag.

It is waterproof, dustproof, and floats too!

The awesome design blast sound 360 degrees, so the music will be heard all round the boat.

Multi-tool – Leatherman Wave

The classic Leatherman Wave. A no-nonsense multi-tool that will last forever. This bad boy has a total of 18 tools along with the replaceable wire cutters that are of very much importance.

All 18 tools can be opened and locked quickly, conveniently to tackle any task. Many of these tools are outside-accessible, so you can use them when the multi-tool is folded and closed.

A no-brainer gift that will definitely make any angler happy. No one can have too many tools.

Watch – Nixon Regulus

I love the simple and tough no nonsense design. This watch was designed in collaboration with the US military and will surely survive any fishing trip.

If you are keen on a dive, it also has a 100m water rating. It also has dual time day/date, auto calendar through 2099, dual chronographs all packed into a tough injection-molded fiber-reinforced polycarbonate case.

You can’t go wrong with this watch.

Fly Tying – Loon Core Fly Tying Kit

This one is for the wavers of the long wand. If he or she fly fishes, they will be into fly tying.

Loon’s core fly tying kit contains the essential tools needed to create amazing flies to entice your target fish. The kit comes with scissors, bobbin, bodkin, whip finisher, and hackle plier, all packed in a durable case. The bare essentials.

I have this kit myself and the quality is superb! The bright yellow grips on each of the tools will make finding them around your ‘organized’ fly tying bench much easier. You can’t tie flies without a vise, so coming up is, of course, a fly tying vise.

Fly Tying – Regal INEX Vise

The best high-quality vise to gift. From beginner to pro fly tier, the Inex Vise is always a good choice.

Made with the same care and Bulldog Bite as our other vises, the Inex is designed to provide all the basics for learning how to tie a solid fly and grow your skills.

It also easily clamps onto your table or workspace, which is great for mobility and if you still don’t have a designated fly tying station (which you will surely have soon).

Fishflicks Subscription

Mark Berg Snakehead

Netflix for fishing! That’s right. Just perfect for when you can’t get out on the water.

Fishflicks is an on-demand 24/7 fishing show streaming site that has no irritating ads (when you purchase a subscription) and has all your favorite fishing shows available to stream anywhere you are.

Whether you are on an android or ios device, PC or Mac, you’ll get your dose of fishing without any worries.

This is such a great gift, as we really can’t travel much nowadays.

Sunnies – Costa Slack Tide

Costa Slack Tide

You can never go wrong with gifting a pair of Costas.

The Slack Tide is our choice for this year’s gift guide as it doesn’t scream “I’M AN ANGLER!” so you can casually rock this pair around town while not sacrificing the great fishing features for on-water adventures.

Their trademark 580 polarized lenses are right at the top in terms of lens technology and will be greatly appreciated by anglers of all skill levels. You can’t go wrong with gifting a pair of Costas.
