Nick’s Fishmas List
Fishpond Hook Jaw River Tool: For the guy/gal who wants a little bit of everything in a cool, metal package. Built in the U.S.A. out of aluminum and titanium, this is a river tool that will not fall apart. The Hook Jaw comes with a cutting blade for leaders and tippet, bottle opener, and has a VERY accurate tippet and leader gauge that will keep you from wasting perfectly good leaders. For only $20.00, this makes a GREAT stocking stuffer!
Smith Creek Middle Fork Patch/Smith Creek Rig Keeper Dropper Rig System: Organization of flies and gear makes for more fun days on the water, period. These two new fly patches from Smith Creek are excellent choices for any angler wanting to streamline their fishing, and keep their flies open and available without fear of losing them. The Middle Fork fly patch has a solid pin mount that keeps it from being yanked off your vest, and has double-sided slit foam for storage of flies. The Rig Keeper/Dropper Rig system is tailor-made for those of us who LOVE to fish dropper rigs (i.e. ME). It too has double sided slit foam, and line grooves so you can literally wrap up your dry-dropper rigs without having to take them apart. These two fly patches are only $25.00 (Middle Fork) and $21.95 (Dropper Rig) respectively; a great gift for the angler who has everything, but still needs a little help in streamlining their fishing time!
Simms “Taco” Wader Bag: This is not the most “new” and “hip” gift item for 2015, but it is still one of my favorites and incredibly useful! Carrying your gear to and from your car, and keeping it from getting your car incredibly muddy is something that should never be underappreciated. It is a simple gear bag that also doubles as a wader mat for setting up on. Functionality, simplicity, and durability-nothing wrong with any of those attributes!
