Simple yes. This wallet is cheap and is all a true fisherman really needs. There’s space for a fishing license, some cash, and a few cards. Live simply.

Patagonia Stormfront Roll Top Boat Bag – $149

A great bag for any traveling fisherman. This bag is waterproof and has straps on the side for a rod tube. There is the perfect amount of space in side for multiple fly boxes and other gear. One of the more expensive gifts on this list, but definitely worth it.

An absolute classic for fly-fishermen of any level. This story follows the lives of two fly-fishing brothers who want different things out of life, but still bond over fly fishing the hallowed waters of Montana. It’s a must read for any fly-fisherman.

Poler 2.5 Ranger Anorak – $132

This jacket is awesome for fishermen. Multiple pockets, and especially the kangaroo pocket leave tons of space for fly-boxes and any gear an angler might normally keep in a vest.

Railriders Eco-Mesh Shirt – $55

The perfect fishing shirt. We like this one because it doesn’t have buttons, so if you’re jetting out to your next fishing spot the buttons aren’t stinging you in the chest as they flap around in the wind.

Rep Your Water Brookie Hat – $21

Any trout fisherman would be stoked to find this under the tree.


Rising Nippas – $7

Just a little stocking stuffer. I’m always losing these and could use an extra pair.
