Holiday Gift Guide:

Looking for the perfect gift for the angler in your life? We’ve got you covered.

  • Fly Tying: Giving a tying kit, tying vise, and/or a Fly Tying 101 Certificate is a great introuction to a deeper dive into fly fishing – as anglers, this utility is invaluable to “dial in” our patterns for specific scenarios or areas.
    • Renzetti Traveler Vise: If you’re looking to get the ultimate fly tying vise that will last a lifetime, check out this vise. We use these daily as well as instructional vises. Made in the USA. $195
    • Orvis Fly Tying Kit: Fly Tying kits are tough to buy. Most come with useless excess or with sub-par tying materials and tools. The Orvis Fly Tying Kit is the perfect balance between decent tools and usable material. $198
    • Fly Tying 101 Gift Certificate: We offer beginner fly tying courses here in the shop. $100 per person, 4 hours long.

    • Simms Waders and Boots: We recommend getting sized before purchasing, but if that might ruin the surprise, come to the store with a few numbers ready and we will do our best to size appropriately: Shirt Size, Height, Pant Waist/Inseam, and Shoe Size.
