2020 Holiday Season Gift Ideas for Anglers

November 17, 2020

The holiday season is quickly approaching, and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s that time of year to buy your friends and loved-ones quirky and questionably useful gifts. We know you have at least a few anglers in your crew, so why not get them something they can actually use?!

Here are just a few ideas to get your favorite angler this holiday season:

GoPro Camera

While not technically related to fishing, this versatile camera gives everyone in the angler community a chance to show off their skills. A favorite among younger anglers, but growing in popularity with the older ones too, having a GoPro camera attached to their boat, kayak, or even clipped onto a hat, captures all their hard work. It’ll be photographic proof of the one that got away, as well as their personal bests.

A GoPro camera comes in varying sizes and specs. There are also a ton of add-ons and accessories to help outdoor enthusiasts capture the adventure. Getting a waterproof GoPro allows your angler to video the entire experience, from bait in water to fish on the hook. There are also poles and chest straps for various angles. Without a doubt, the GoPro is a great gift for any angler! 

Tackle Box/Bag

Every fisherman and woman has some sort of tackle box or bag to keep their gear in. From hooks and lines, to lures and tools required on the water. A good tackle box is one that is durable and versatile, with lots of compartments. Having a new or updated tackle box isn’t something that anglers typically will buy for themselves, but it’s a necessary investment. 

Or, it just gives them an excuse for even more fishing gear, and who doesn’t love that?! If you know your angler’s preferences for lures and hooks, you can also go that extra step and load it down with all sorts of goodies – talk about an amazing gift!

Gloves

Fishing gloves is another one of those items that anglers don’t typically buy for themselves, but it’s always good to have an extra pair around. The type of fishing your angler does will determine the type of gloves, but generally anything rubberized (to protect the fish) and durable is a good start. Some anglers use fingerless gloves to better handle the line and hook, so make sure you know your angler’s preference before making this purchase.

Socks

Socks? Really?! And to that we say: Yes! Absolutely!

Socks are an important factor to any fishing trip that often get overlooked. It’s a practical gift that your angler will surely enjoy, even though they may chuckle at first. Make sure to go with moisture-wicking fabric that keeps feet dry. There are also padded socks for those who are standing most of the day, and thermal for those in colder climates. It’s not a wow-inducing gift like others, but essential and practical, and therefore a great gift for any angler. 

FishAnywhere.com Gift Card

Sometimes the easiest gift is a gift card, so why not purchase a FishAnywhere.com gift card for your family and treat everyone to a charter?! We partner with guides and charter captains across North America, the Caribbean, Central America, and Africa. Your favorite angler can reserve a local guide, or go anywhere and fish a new-to-them area with a captain. Gift cards are available in amounts of $25, $50, $100, and $200 increments for your convenience. Once your angler has a FishAnywhere.com gift card, they can purchase an upcoming family vacation fishing trip of a lifetime!

Custom Apparel from First Light Outfitters

Another great idea for any angler: custom and unique apparel from First Light Outfitters. As a partner with FishAnywhere.com, First Light Outfitters offers a variety of hunting and fishing guides the opportunity to sell their one-of-a-kind apparel. As a fishing enthusiast, you can get some really good looking gear from places on your ever growing bucket list! A Costa Rica fishing shirt? Check. A Florida Bass shirt? Yep, they’ve got that too. Browse shops to see the many varieties available. It’s definitely an unique gift that will stand out for your angler. And maybe give them the idea to travel and fish with the charter of the gear they’re sporting?!

This Holiday Season

Even if your angler has an item already listed here, it probably wouldn’t hurt to get another one, or upgrade what they have. The wear and tear of most fishing-related equipment is inevitable, and having a new and improved one will be very appreciated. Or with your FishAnywhere.com gift card, you can leave all the gear behind and enjoy a day on the water with a professional. Happy Holidays from our FishAnywhere.com family to yours!
