The Deeper Pro+ 2 is a real game changer that can help you take your fishing game to the next level.
Fishing is an outdoor sport, so of course every angler needs a favorite pair of sunglasses to fish with. And what’s not to love about these cool polarized shades from Fishoholic? They come in a variety of color options, with wide sides to reduce glare, and are made of a flexible composite material to stand up to the great outdoors.
Here’s another cool gift idea that your fishing fan is not likely to get for themselves. Yeti’s Panga backpack is both spacious and airtight, making it ideal for fishing everywhere. Whether you’re wading into a creek or taking your gear out on a boat, you can be sure to keep your phone, wallet, lunch and gear safe and dry all the way. If the backpack is not large enough, Yeti also offers a fully submersible waterproof duffel bag.
Those who love fishing feel the opposite way about mosquitoes. But unfortunately, the flying, biting pests tend to hang out in most places where fish can be found. This handy gadget is a great solution, especially for anglers who hate the smell (and feel) of liquid insect repellents.
The Thermacell MR 300V is completely portable, and creates a 15-foot zone of protection around it, allowing you to fish in peace. Powered by a refillable butane fuel cartridge, it requires neither cords nor batteries, making it perfect for the most remote outings.
These heavy duty pliers are destined to become every fisherman’s favorite tool. Made of high-quality stainless steel coated with titanium and featuring a rugged non-slip grip, these pliers are built to stand up to just about any environment.
Fishing gloves are often not something anglers think they need, until they try them. These cool gloves from KastKing really help keep a solid grip on your rod, and provide SPF50+ UV protection at the same time. The fingerless design allows you to effortlessly work your lures or your phone, and sewn in tabs make it as easy to remove them as it is to put them on.
This is a small gift that packs a big punch. Known for making some of the best quality pocket knives in the world, Benchmade has pulled out all the stops to produce possibly the best folding fishing knife ever made. Featuring a locking drop-point blade, stabilized wood handle, and built-in gut hook, this is the ultimate all-purpose tool for anyone who loves to fish or hunt.
