Love it or hate it, there is no avoiding it- Valentine’s Day. With V-day approaching soon, we want to help you and your better half, have the best day possible. There’s that saying, “spend money on experiences, not things.”
We support that genuinely, but we also recognize that sometimes certain “things” make those experiences even better. So, whether you are looking to enhance you and your partners next fishing experience or plan a special outing together, there is an idea for every angler on this list.
1. Wine and Dine on the Water
Nothing says thoughtful more than a wintery outing on the water complete with a homemade meal and thermos full of your partner’s favorite hot beverage. Take that special someone to your favorite spot, or better yet show them that honey hole you’ve been keeping to yourself and surprise them with a delicious bite to eat!
2. Guided Trip
Even the most advanced angler can benefit from a guided trip! It is truly amazing what one day with a guide can do to your fly-fishing skills. Taking your special someone along is a great way to relax and simultaneously progress your skills!
On a tight budget this year? That’s ok, sometimes the most romantic gifts are the ones that are from the heart. Amazon sells trout shaped cookie cutters for under fifteen dollars! Surprise your fly-fishing lover with this thoughtful and sweet gift!
Nothing says true love like geeking out over every angler’s favorite movie night- F3T! Surprise your loved one with tickets to a showing near you! (link to fly fishing film tour)
Arguably, flies are one of the most important aspects of fly-fishing success. Entomology is also a difficult subject to grasp, especially as a beginner it can seem overwhelming at first. There are many different kinds of flies, dries, nymphs, and streamers and trout feed on each in different ways.
Simplify it for the beginner angler in your life and give the gift that keeps on giving, with a subscription to The Fly Crate! The angler can discover new flies each month and gain helpful tips and knowledge included in the subscription.
The I.D reel It features a flat back surface to accept custom decals representing anything from your home state to your favorite fish species, and the decals are simple to remove, stack, or swap to update your reel’s look over time. There is no better product to define you and your loved one’s identities as anglers.
For that fly fishing finatic in your life. Accompany your gifts with a letterpressed cotton card that reads, “I love you more than trout love mayflies.”
