2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Great Gifts For Fishermen.

Take it from someone who could assemble an outfit where every component has an embroidered fish on it—good fishing gifts are precious, rare things. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best fishing-themed gifts available for Northeast anglers who fish small ponds for bass, go surfcasting for stripers, or troll offshore for tuna.

We started by asking everyone here in the On The Water office: What are the best gifts you’ve received, and what is on your wish list for this year? To round things out, we asked our advertising partners to recommend a few more gift ideas, and then sorted the list by type of angler.

We hope that you’ll find the perfect gift ideas for your fishing buddies and a few for yourself.
