This Holiday season, (now through Christmas) I will be featuring different gift ideas for fly fishing or the special fly angler in your life. These are just suggestions & ideas that run the gamut of big & small gifts for your Holidays. Hopefully this will help to make your shopping a little easier. (Unless otherwise stated, I'm not affiliated with any products or dealers discussed here. I only mention them as recommendations.)
One gift idea for the fly angler is a new home for their favorite fly rod. I offer soft cloth rod bags in different colors. These bags feature embelishment stiches that give these bags a distinctive look. The standard colors are tan, green, & brown but any color bag can be made for you. Each bag is made to fit your rod exactly. All you have to do is provide me with the total length of the each section of your rod & we'll make a bag to fit your rod. Please go to the "Accessories" page to learn more bout these rod bags.
After your rod is in a bag, you'll need a rod tube to transport & store it in. I offer heavy-wall round PVC rod tubes that are covered in canvas material. These tubes featuer a padded zipper top closure & a leather identification tag where you can write your name, what's in the tube, etc. These are a very cost effective way to store your rods & give them the protection they need. You can read more about these tubes HERE.
