"I have enough fishing gear," said no angler ever! And it's true. Every angler can always use something else, no matter how much gear they have. Regardless if they fish in freshwater or saltwater, there are great gifts that can be used for both.
GIFTS FOR THE LADY ANGLER
Shady Rays Emerald Smoke Polarized Sunglasses
If you're on the water, you need good polarized sunglasses so you can see through the water and decrease the glare. Shady Rays have become my go-to sunnies for fishing and everyday wear. The X-Series Emerald Smoke Polarized sunglasses are polarized with 100% UV protection, have a durable polycarbonate frame, and non-slip nose pads. And one of the best features of Shady Rays is their lost and broken protection.
Slappafish Performance Fishing Shirt
Sun protection is so important when you spend day after day on the water. Most sunscreens are filled with chemicals, so choosing clothing with UV protection has become the choice for many anglers. Slappafish offers several options for their 50 UPF quick-dry shirts. Choose from hooded or crew neck, 6 shirt colors, and nearly 50 artwork designs to customize the shirt to the recipient's favorite fish.
