10 Best Holiday Gifts for Hunters and Anglers in 2017

10 Best Holiday Gifts for Hunters and Anglers in 2017

We see it quite often this time of year; Your loved one absolutely loves hunting and fishing, but you have no idea what gear they already have, or what they would need. We're here to help with ten gift ideas for that special hunter or angler on your list.

RepYourWater Trout Socks


We know, the first thing you do when you see more socks on a holiday list is roll your eyes. But these aren't your run of the mill cheap fish socks. 

Made in Steamboat Springs, CO by Point 6, these medium-weight Merino Wool crew socks can actually be used for wading, hiking, hunting, and biking! Whoever receives these in their stocking will be able to show their love of fish no matter the activity!

The best preparation for tomorrow is what you do today they say. With most hunting seasons winding down, the time to start preparing for next season is now! The person that receives this under the tree will be able to prepare for that next demanding high country spot-and-stalk or high alpine trout stream exploration with ease. Plus, they can achieve their preparation goals quicker while they work off those holiday indulgences!

Help that special person show off their love of hunting and fishing on the next big night out on the town or everyday! Hand made in Austin, TX, these artistic bracelets come in a variety of designs and sizes that will surely find a spot under your tree! 

Fishpond River Rat 2.0


It's always important to stay hydrated while fishing or rafting, and with the River Rat 2.0, that frosty beverage will always be right where they need it.

RepYourWater Wapiti Hat


Have an elk hunter in the family? Let them rep their love for wapiti with this great trucker!

Umpqua UPG HD Medium Fly Box


Every angler can use a new fly box. These brand new fly boxes from Umpqua has redefined the standard for all other fly boxes. Featuring a waterproof seal and the FlyTrap high-grip storage system, these boxes are sure to make your angler smile!

Normal fly fishing nippers have a tendency to dull after only a few run-ins with the eye of a hook. Not so with the strong Tungsten carbide cutting edges found on these Umpqua River Grip models! The Tungsten Carbide will bite through any sized tippet with ease. A rubberized grip and eye cleaner result in the perfect nipper.

If the person on your gift list needs a net to fight off Grizzly Bears, this will be their net of choice. Fishpond's new Nomad River Armor edition nets are constructed with a core of carbon fiber and fiberglass, and an outer layer of woven DuPont Kevlar® fiber and carbon fiber. Can you say bomber?

With the country's largest Elk herd, Colorado is often a destination for hunters from near and far. Show your centennial state pride with this Colorado flag elk shirt! In addition to our standard conservation dontaion, 1% goes to Colorado Backcountry Hunters & Anglers!
