Baitcasting Rod: G.LOOMIS® MOSSYBACK SENKO BASS ROD ($255.00)

Known and loved by amateur and professional anglers alike, G.Loomis rods are renowned for their high quality, lightweight construction. When it comes to fishing soft plastics, it doesn't get much better than the G.Loomis Mossyback BCR 893, a Medium-Heavy power rod measuring in at 7'5" with Extra-Fast action. Any angler would love to find this beauty wrapped and waiting under the Christmas tree this holiday season.

Baitcasting Reel: SHIMANO® CURADO® E BAITCASTING REEL ($249.99)

Shimano makes some of the best Spinning and Baitcasting fishing reels in the world and when it comes to baitcasters, the Curado series is one of their highest quality lines. The Curado E is constructed of durable, lightweight aluminum and graphite, weighs in at just 10.5oz, runs a 6.2:1 gear ratio, and is capable of pulling in 28 inches of line per turn. Sleek lines and a low profile design make the Shimano Curado E Baitcasting reel a great addition to any rod.

Waders: ORVIS® PRO GUIDE WADERS ($395.00)

If the angler in your life is a fly fisherman, or someone who prefers the thrill of river fishing over the deep open waters of lake and ocean fishing, then a pair of good high quality waders is a must. Orvis' new Pro Guide Waders are lightweight, 100% waterproof, with a stretch fabric upper and 5-layers of fabric in the lower legs for increased abrasion and puncture resistance. They even have built in fleece lined hand warmers behind a zipper mesh chest pocket, durable neoprene gravel guards, and an included wading belt. Any river angler would love to strap these on.


A high quality PFD is an essential part of safety equipment and a must for any boat or kayak going angler, and when it comes to PFDs, safety and comfort are key. The NRS Ninja Type III is low profile, with two adjustable shoulders straps, four side straps, is designed specifically with the kayaker in mind, and won’t interfere with an angler’s paddling, rowing, or swimming range of motion. When it comes to safety and comfort the NRS Ninja Type III is the best of both worlds.

Scale: BOGAGRIP® MODEL 315 ($124.95)

The ultimate angler's accessory, Bogagrips are fish grips and scale in one. At 9 inches long, and weighing 9 ounces, they're a finger saving asset when it comes to hooking into big toothy fish like Northern Pike and Muskie. The scale weighs up to 15lbs in 1/4lbs increments, and the grips can handle monster fish up to twice that weight. Any angler will appreciate finding a pair of Bogagrip Model 315s under the tree.Christmas shopping for anyone can feel like an overwhelming challenge, especially when it comes to shopping for anglers, and though it may seem overwhelming at first, take a few pointers from The Ultimate Angler's Gift Guide and you're guaranteed to put a smile on any angler's face.
