Christmas gift ideas for the hunter or angler on your list.

It's hard to believe but it's that time of year already to start looking for that perfect gift for that hard to buy angler or hunter on your list. Let's face it 2020 can't be behind us fast enough. However, there is a silver lining and that is that many of you have rekindled your outdoor recreation passion. You found a new love for camping, fishing, hunting, and just getting outdoors and away from all the noise. I'm sure you have experienced things you never have before with your new adventures and along the way have identified items you wish you had to make your experience that much better. Here are my recommend gift ideas that I assure you, any hunter or angler will appreciate.

1. Salmo Lures (Hornet), Every angler has a crankbait addiction so why not feed it with some Salmo lures. These lures are a multi-species lure but really shine when used for walleye. At one time In-Fisherman magazine declared the Salmo Hornet the #1 walleye lure on the market. These make great stocking stuffers or get a pile of them in a big box! Prices starting at $7.99ea Check them out here: Salmo


2. WileyX Eyewear, You only have one set of eyes so you need to protect them with the best. WileyX sunglasses are Ansi rated providing the top safety rating amongst eyewear.
