Here we are 10 days away from Christmas, so I figured it would be a good time to call out 10 of my favorite gift ideas for the sportsman in your life! Some of these items will cost you more then others, but the list consits of all price ranges and aim to please your man. They are in no particular order.
1. Rapala Lithium Ion Fillet Knife-Fishing and a must have for any fisherman who likes a meal of fish now and again.
2. Jason Mitchell Elite Ice Fishing Combo-These are great combo's and available in different actions depending on your man. If he fishes panfish get him a 24" Meatstick and if he is a walleye or perch guy the 26" or 28" make great options.
3. Sitka Fanatic Jacket- Anything Sitka will be the best hunting gear your man will have ever owned. This stuff fits right and is warm for the deer hunter in your family. Also check out their waterfowl and Open Country patterns.
4. Shimano Curado-The best all around baitcaster made and a great value at under $200 bucks. He will love this reel if he enjoys casting for fish at all.
5. Grizzly Cooler-If keeping your game or beverages is important then a Grizzly is a must have. They make great bait tanks in the winter and great for keep beverages and food cold for days in the summer. Another must have for the avid outdoorsman. I find myself using the 20qt and 40qt all the time.
6. Clam Tackle- If you are looking for small items or stocking stuffer's these are your "go-to"! Clam has an entire line of tackle options to help your man catch more fish this winter.
7. Mathews No-Cam HTR Bow-The most accurate, smoothest bow ever invented. This thing will make your man drop to his knees and praise the ground you walk on(if he doesn't already..). If you want to make your man feel love beyond words, I would look into getting him one of these if he is a bow hunter or looking to get into shooting.
8. HHA Lite King Pin-Maybe your man is in need of a new bow sight. HHA has recently released a new single pin sight that will have him wondering who you were getting your info from. This one is another home run for the avid bow hunter in your family. A great upgrade to any bow.
9. Clam Ice Auger Conversion Kit-If your man has a nice Lithium drill or maybe you bought him one already for Christmas this will make for a great way to get him on the ice. This conversion kit really makes for a easy solution to drill ice holes. Great alternative to a gas auger.
10. Guided Fishing Trip-If you are completly stumped this holiday season but want to send him on a fishing trip he will remember, or you have always wanted to hire him a guide now is your chance. You can contact me for gift certificates for 5hr fishing excursions for 2 people with all the gear provided.
Hopefully these ideas help you ladies or men still looking for "the gift". If you have any questions feel free to contact me at any time. Fish On and Happy Holidays!
