Reddington Voyant Outfit
The Redington Voyant Outfit is the ultimate fly-fisherman starter kit: a nine-foot rod (you pick the weight: 4, 5, 6, or 8) paired with a case and a lightweight Surge reel pre-spooled with line and leader.
L.L. Bean Signature Plaid Maine Guide Shirt
L.L. Bean's Signature Plaid Maine Guide shirt is more like a lightweight jacket (which means it runs big) with a great backstory: it's built to the same specs as one of the brand's most popular garments from the 1920s.
Orvis Guide To Small Stream Fly Fishing
Perhaps your favorite angler just needs a nudge to get him to explore new waters? That's the premise behind Orvis' beautifully illustrated, tip-packed Guide to Small Stream Fly Fishing.
Bending Branches Sun Shadow Paddle
Handmade in northern Wisconsin from basswood, butternut, alder, and black willow, the bent-shaft Bending Branches Sun Shadow paddle has a stout rock guard made from the same stuff as skateboard wheels.
Sperry Top-Sider Feedback Low Booties
It doesn’t matter if they kayak twice a week or canoe only a few times a summer—everyone needs a pair of versatile, quick-drying, slippery-rock-gripping water shoes like Sperry Top-Sider’s Feedback Low Booties.
Steelhead Red Wine
Looking for something small for your boss who likes fly-fishing? Pick up a bottle of Steelhead Red. A portion of the proceeds go to Trout Unlimited, one of our favorite trout-and-salmon-conservation organizations.
MiiR Mi 800 Water Bottle
As part of the company's one4one initiative, a dollar from each Miir stainless steel water bottle sold goes to fund construction of water wells around the world. The coolest part: three to six months after purchasing, go to miir.com/proof and enter your order number. A Google map will pop up displaying the location of the well your contribution helped build.
