Holiday Gift Guide Part 2: The Angler Who Has it All

Shopping for your favorite angler this holiday season, but worried they already have it all? No worries. We’ve got a list of gift ideas just for you.

This holiday season, we’ve assembled gift ideas in several categories, including the avid angler, the angler who has it all, the new angler, the fly tier, and stocking stuffers. In case you missed last week’s blog post with ideas for the avid angler, you can find that here.

This week, we’re ready with five ideas for the angler who has it all:

  1. A Travel Experience

This holiday season, you can’t possibly go wrong with a fly fishing adventure. For the angler who has it all, give them an experience they’ll never forget.

Giving someone a travel experience doesn’t mean you won’t have something to put under the tree. In fact, we’ve created custom gift boxes to accompany our featured travel gifts…

Consider our annual trip to Cinco Rios Lodge in Chile at the end of Feburary. In the heart of Patagonia, Cinco Rios is a destination unlike anywhere else on earth. From this location, you can fish a mind-boggling variety of waters. You could experience spring creeks, glacial lakes, coastal rivers and temperate rain forests. In addition to the fishing, you’ll get to experience Patagonia’s incredible hospitality, food and wine. For details, take a look at our Cinco Rios Travel Page.

Feeling something more tropical? Check out our March 2019 trip to Turneffe Flats Lodge in Belize. This destination expertly caters to both beginner and expert saltwater anglers. Anglers will have the opportunity to target bonefish, permit, tarpon and many other species. This is one of our most popular annual trips at Anglers All. For more information, see our Turneffe Flats Travel Page.

For a destination much closer to home, yet world-class in its own right, you can’t beat the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, right here in Colorado. Anglers from all over the world come to experience the Gunnison Gorge. But we have the local advantage. We book dates a year in advance, securing prime time during the fabled salmonfly hatch in June. This is something every angler should experience. For information, please visit our Gunnison Gorge Trip Page.

  1. Abel and Hatch Nippers

A set of nippers from Abel or Hatch make the perfect gift for any die-hard angler. Abel Nippers feature incredibly strong replaceable jaws made from premium grade stainless steel. Similarly, Hatch Nippers come with replaceable jaws made from tungsten carbide. Gift a set of these, and it could easily be the last pair of nippers they ever own.

  1. Premium Fly Rods and Fly Reels

Every angler, though they might appear to have everything, can always use another fly rod or fly reel in their quiver. When considering fly rods, you can’t go wrong with a rod from Sage, Winston, Scott or G. Loomis. And when selecting a reel, there’s always a good choice with Abel, Hatch, Ross, Gavlan and Nautilus. For help picking out the perfect setup for a holiday gift, don’t hesitate to visit us at the fly shop or call us at 303-794-1104.

  1. River Quiver Rooftop Rod Holder

If you really want to spoil your favorite angler for the holidays, hook them up with a River Quiver, made by Riversmith. These premium rooftop fly rod holders are designed to be light, durable and incredibly secure. The River Quiver comes in two different models. One can accommodate two fly rods and the other can securely hold four fly rods.

  1. Luggage from Fishpond, Patagonia or Simms

A great way to show some love to the angler who has everything, is to give them a way to carry it all. You can expect to get a ton of mileage from high quality wader bags, duffel bags, rolling suitcases and backpacks that are weather resistant (in some cases totally submersible), durable and functional. We highly recommend luggage from Fishpond, which is one of our favorite local companies here in Denver. We also offer great options from Patagonia and Simms.

If you need any help picking out a gift, we’d love to help. Visit us at the fly shop or call us at 303-794-1104 and we’ll give you a hand.

Check back next week, and we will have a few gift ideas for the new anglers on your list.
