The fly fishing industry is one of creation and innovation. There are new products coming out monthly that are always tempting for the gear nut. Christmas is a perfect time to shop for those new and innovative items for the angler on your list. The 10 items below represent new and exciting items for the Fall 2019 season. Happy Holidays!
1. Ross Reels Evolution LTX Limited Edition Reels $395
Ross Reels has taken the already popular Evolution LTX Reel and made it even more exciting. The Evolution LTX is one of our top selling reels due to its ultra smooth drag and lightweight construction. Ross has created two limited edition color treatments in both the LTX 5/6 and LTX 7/8 Instead of the normal silver or black, both of these reels come in a matte gray color with highlighted blue and green drag knobs and reel feet. They look beautiful in-person and will match perfectly on any modern fly rod.
2. Orvis Limited Edition Tim Johnson H3 Rods $1149 - $1198
The Orvis H3 is one of the leading premium rods in the industry today. Usually known by its signature white color, this limited edition rod comes instead in both green and blue. Artist Tim Johnson has hand burned each cork with a fishing scene that really takes this rod to the next level. Great for the collector or to be fished, these rods are in short supply and are the perfect gift for the angler that has everything.
3. Simms G4Z Stockingfoot Waders $849
Simms has taken waders to the next level with the new G4Z waders. These front zip waders have increased durability and are much lighter than their predecessors. Made completely of Gore Tex in Bozeman Montana, the G4’s are the best waders on the market today and would be an amazing gift for any fisherman.
4. Simms G4 Pro Boots Vibram $299
Also new from Simms this year are the G4 Pro Vibram boots. Along with increased wear resistance this boot offers a totally new stud design for increased traction. The sole of this boot has threaded non-corrosive receptacles for the studs which will help when removing the cleats when they aren’t needed. Every fisherman is looking for better stream bed traction and these boots will offer that.
5. Sight Line Provisions - Fishing Inspired Wrist Wear $70
Made in Austin Texas, these fishing and outdoor inspired bracelets are a way to represent the sports that you love. From Trout to Tarpon, from Bikes to Mountains, these beautifully crafted bracelets are a great gift idea for any outdoor lover.
There are few better gifts than a new hobby. If you have a fly fisher in your family that does not tie their own flies then this gift will keep giving for a lifetime. The opportunity to catch a fish on a fly that you made is one of the best feelings, this kit makes that possible. In particular, this Orvis kit is full of all the right high quality materials to tie many great fly patterns.
Yeti is always on the cutting edge of keeping things cool and fresh. The new Day Trip lunch bag is no exception. This bag comes in three great colors and will keep your lunch and drinks cool for the whole day. And don’t forget, it’s a Yeti!
Every fly fisherman needs the basics, Hemostat, Nipper and Zinger.. The Loon Essentials kit includes all three of these items so it makes a great stocking stuffer. Loon always produces high quality items and these three streamside tools are made to last.
This sling pack is a staff favorite and one of our top sellers. This hold-all fishing bag is the perfect gift for someone trying to replace an old vest or just trying to reorganize all of their fishing gear. The Summit Sling comes in two colors and is made to a very high quality standard. While your shopping, also check out all of the other high quality packs and bags from Fishpond.
Sometimes a product comes along that really amazes us. The taco bag from Simms is one of those items. Perfect for holding waders, boots, jackets and even 4 piece rods the taco bag is a great gift for someone looking for a better storage solution at a reasonable price.
