Buying a birthday present or other special gift for your buddy is already challenging enough. You’ve been on several fishing trips and you know that he or she already has everything a serious angler could possibly need in a lifetime. We’ve been there.
Finding the right gift can really be an adventure, so we searched the market for some of the most unique and affordable gifts for that next special occasion. This guide will give you some great ideas and will keep you on your friend’s roster of serious fishing buddies. You may even find something for yourself.
KastKing Tackle Bag
Every fisherman deserves to have a good tackle bag, and the KastKing brand is one of the best available. This tackle bag is durable and water-resistant and there is plenty of space to store your tackle. Designed for function, the Kastking bag makes it easy to store and retrieve your fishing lures and tackle.
The bag comes in several different sizes. There are large bags for the professional fishermen and smaller bags for the hobbyist fishermen. An affordable price makes this bag our number one recommended fishing gift.
Fishing Lure Kit
Many fisherman enjoy using artificial lures and trying out different lures. This is why a lure kit makes for a great gift. The kit that we recommend includes 77 different lures. There are plastic worms, spoon lures, jigs, crankbait and topwater lures. A fisherman can catch a variety of different fish species with these lures including bass, salmon, and trout. You can also use them in different waters such as the ocean, rivers, ponds, and streams.
The lures provide excellent value and they also come in a small tackle box as an added bonus.
Outdoor Edge Game Processor 12 Piece Portable Butcher Kit
What angler doesn’t need a great set of knives when he is going fishing? Pardon the pun, but this is one sharp set of knives. Whether your friend will use them to cut the line for those catch-and-release trips, or to fillet and scale the catch of the day, the Outdoor Edge Knives will fit the bill. These knives are equally useful when camping or hunting to prepare food or dress a deer.
We all know how slimy knives can get when handling them. With rubberized and slip-resistant Kraton handles, you can maintain a firm grip even in the most slippery conditions. Each blade in this 12-piece set is made from the toughest, high carbon 420-stainless steel for the ultimate durability.
This set includes a butcher, boning/fillet, skinner and caper knives as well as a Tungsten-Carbide V-sharpener, carving fork, wood-bone saw, game shears, cutting board, ribcage spreader and a pair of latex gloves. The included hard-shelled carrying case makes it easy and safe for travel. While the superior performance knives are rugged, they are also lightweight and won’t add too much to the rest of the gear.
Born to Fish Coffee Mug
We know that sometimes it takes a cup of coffee or two to really wake up, and this hand-painted ceramic mug is just the ticket. Your friend will appreciate the wit and design of the Born to Fish Coffee Mug. For those frustrating days on the water when nothing seems to be biting, the hefty mug features a fisherman’s version of the serenity prayer.
This dishwasher and microwave safe piece of glassware holds up to 18 ounces of your favorite coffee, cider or hot chocolate. The mug could even be used to warm up some soup.
Learning Resources Pretend and Play Fishing Set
If you are looking for a great gag gift or if your buddy has a little fisherman in his family, then the Pretend and Play Fishing Set is the perfect present to hook them early. With a rod complete with a reel, the little one can pull in one of three magnetic toy fish included in the set.
To complete the look of an authentic angler, the nylon and canvas vest will make him look just like his father.
No matter what milestone or special day your friend or family memeber is celebrating, the gifts listed here should spark some creative ideas for you to consider. You can’t go wrong with any of these gifts. Our top recommended gift is the KastKing fishing tackle bag. It’s one gift that any fishermen will be sure to appreciate.
