Welcome to the first ever Fish Schtick Holiday Gift Guide!
I really like my new Loop Multi Rod. http://www.looptackle.com/website4/188.8.131.52/114/1/
Scott S4S - The S4 is a user-friendly fast action fly rod. The S4 will be comfortable even in the hands of a traditional, slow-action fly rod caster. Nicest salt water stick Scott has ever made.
‘Tis the year of the custom rod. You should get a rod built for someone you love.
Dragon’s Custom Rods in Lincoln Nebraska built me a spinning rod for the TTBC and I love it.
Fetha Styx makes custom rods in Washington, and they’re good people.
If money is an issue, the St. Coix Mojo Bass series is awesome around $100.
For less than that, the Field & Stream series available at Dick’s is a great value at $25 – $50.
Flies & Fly Tying
Nothing new under the sun … except the Moffitt System flies
Plenty of time to get online orders in with places like Hill’s Discount Flies
I got some Shock and Awes from Clark and Anil at Puget Sound Fly Co when I was up there
Lures & Tackle
PRADCO just came out with a 3-pack of crankbaits that benefits the Future Fisherman Foundation
While you’re there – tungsten weights are just 99 cents right now, you’ll never find them cheaper.
Recycled Fish SAFE Angling Kit makes a swell gift
GreenTackle.com might not be a bad stop
May we recommend Recycled Fish shirts and hats? www.recycledfish.org/store
I wouldn’t think about hitting the ice this winter without my blue suit from Ice Armor: http://www.clamcorp.com/IceArmorClothing/Outerwear/IceArmorBlueBlackSuit/tabid/341/Default.aspx
I’m looking for a new pair of boots and waders – suggestions?
Reel Pure T-shirt or Hat
The new Denali flip shacks are super cool – http://www.clamcorp.com/Shelters/FishTrap/DenaliII/tabid/380/Default.aspx
Genz Ice Fishing Combos – quality meets value – http://www.clamcorp.com/Accessories/IceCombos/tabid/295/Default.aspx
Jason Mitchell Rods – hard to beat them – http://www.jasonmitchellrods.com/
Strikemaster has their new Solo engines, also the Strike-Lite and electric augers – http://www.strikemaster.com/
I want a Vexilar 50th Anniversary Edition flasher! http://vexilar.com/
I also want a GPS unit – like the Lowrance H20C or Expedition.
If you have someone on your list who already has all the basics, think about getting them a set of Reel Weeds: http://www.reelweeds.com/
Boats & Big Toys
That Hobie Mirage Pro Angler is pretty incredible: http://www.youtube.com/mauromedia#p/a/u/1/fCVRVAqwkzo
Truth is, the Carolina Electric Boats Twin Troller is probably more my speed: http://www.twintrollerboats.com/
I also want an ATV a lot lately. Someone posted an old-school 3-wheeler for $450 online the other day, and I couldn’t summon the guts to ask Amy if we could buy it, but I think one of those electric ATVs is a super good idea. http://www.ecoeatv.com/
Cameras and Stuff
Pentax W80 – http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/634774-REG/Pentax_17751_Optio_W80_Digital_Camera.html
New Casio EX-G1 – Worlds thinnest waterproof
Grabber Warmers are perfect no matter where a person is or what they do outside.
Ventafish Tools are another good idea, just $15 http://www.ventafish.com/
Those Shark Tooth Tippet Control System things are cool: http://www.loonoutdoors.com/products/sharktooth.html
The Booze Bait Company is making little poppers out of bottle caps and used wine corks. Recycling! http://www.boozebait.com/
Fish and Wildlife Art
Savlen Studios – Mike Savlen is rapidly becoming a name associated with world class fly fishing, sportfishing and marine art. As an avid outdoorsman, fishing and painting are the fiber of his soul. Mike’s work is displayed in Fly fishing shops, art galleries, museums and in the homes of discriminating fine art collectors around the world!
Mauromedia – Fine Art Prints and Posters By Michael Mauro – Just released “Monarch of the Sky” fine art poster of the majestic bald eagle.
I can’t begin to say how many compliments I’ve gotten on my Recycled Waders bag.
Dry Fly Spirits – yummy!
Hustle and Fish – Once in a Blue Moon – Skagit Master – Rivers of a Lost Coast.
The iPhone has been seriously awesome.
