27 BEST FISHING GIFTS THAT WILL HOOK ’EM

Reel in the right gift with everything from lures and totes to polarized specs and frying pans.

Shopping for any kind of gift can be challenging, but—you may be relieved to hear—anglers sure do make it easy on you. Fishing is a sport that requires lots of gear, and most trawlers will be grateful for any additions to their ever-evolving kit.

Before you get started, here are some dos and don’ts when buying fishing gifts. Unless your giftee is a beginner, steer clear of giving core equipment like rods and reels. These are signature purchases for many anglers, and they will likely already be planning any necessary upgrades themselves. (Of course, the exception to this rule is if they’ve shamelessly hinted to you about what they want.)

If you’re familiar with your recipient’s preferred method of fishing and species of take, think about lures. These can be a great gift since they’re a recurring purchase with how frequently they need replacing. Plus, anglers are always game to try new lures and flies, hoping for the perfect one.

It’s best to keep it general if you’re not plugged-in on the nitty gritty details of your recipient’s fishing hobby. There are plenty of gift options outside of traditional items — tackle boxes, reels, and rods — including books on fishing, ocean-themed apparel, or kitchen supplies for making the most of the day’s catch. I included below some fish-themed gifts and novelty items, with options ranging from $12 to over $700.

Tight lines and happy shopping!

Depending on where you travel, you may want to pack bug spray, too. In places like Florida and North Carolina, summers get buggy, and you’ll be happy to have packed a spray on nights when you want to sit on the porch or dine outdoors.
