Ideas for Christmas Gifts

Christmas is just around the corner, the fishing has been thrown out of sorts with the customary weekly downpour, so here’s a little list of gift ideas if you are unsure what to buy.

  1. Gift Certificate. This makes it easy for you, it can never be the wrong shape, size or color. Call us at the shop and we can email you a gift certificate in no time. If one already fly fishes, it can be used for more gear, if it is something one is interested in pursuing it can go towards lessons or guide trips.
  2. Fly Selection: A box made with flies selected for a specific stream like the Gunpowder or region such as the Florida Keys. We are happy to put together a fly selection for you with seasonal favorites suited for wherever one may fish.
  3. Filson clothing: Whether it’s a hat, a duffel or a outerwear garment. Filson has been at the forefront in outdoors clothing since 1897. Treat yourself or a loved one to the best
  4. Rods: We carry a wide range of rods from five of the leading manufacturers in the industry, Scott from Colorado, Echo & G Loomis from Washington State, St Croix from Wisconsin and Winston from Montana.
  5. Fishpond: From packs, vests, nets and accessories. Exceptional products, great value and a industry leader in environmentally friendly products.
  6. Patagonia Foot Tractors. If one enjoys fishing the larger trout rivers of Western Maryland or central Pennsylvania, this wading boot is perfect for those tricky wading situations on large slippery boulders. On sale from 279 to 200.
  7. Floatant: Be ready for the spring time with an essential stream-side accessory. Tiemco Dry Shake, Tiemco Dry Magic, Loon Aquel, Loon Top Ride, Loon Lochsa.
  8. Layering: Patagonia Tough Puff Hoody, Tough Puff Shirt, Snap-Dry Hoody or R1 Hoody.
  9. Rain Jacket: Patagonia SST and Minimalist Jacket. Don’t let the rainiest year on record in Baltimore stop one from being outside.
