Ideal Christmas gifts For The Sportsman
By Sam Anderson
Being on the Professional Walleye circuit I get asked a number of times throughout the year what the ideal Christmas gift for the sportsmen might be.  To answer all the questions I finally one day sat down and made a list of things that I thought I would like to have, or give to someone on my gift list.  After the first draft of my Christmas list was finished,  I went over it once or twice to make all necessary deletions and additions made.  As usual, the additions far outnumber those items found unnecessary. 

This year, I've made a vow to do something different. In respect to the upcoming Christmas season: 

I have compiled a list of things that will make top-notch gifts for the holiday season

  1.  First of all every sportsman needs new Stren Fishing Line line for his reels. Stren has made some excellent news line called Easy Cast and sensor.  This line makes an inexpensive gift for a child or friend.
  2. If you are looking for  things for your spouse then the Quantum rods and Reels Fish with the best Tour Edition IM7 rod is and excellent choice.  Team this up with a Quantum Hypercast reel and you have a combination.  When your spouse is not using this rod and reel it might be something that you will want to use.
  3. Next maybe even a pair of Cabelas hip boots or waders might be on the list for both you and your spouse. These come in handy in the spring when wading the streams for trout and smallmouth bass.
  4. Don't overlook some great stocking stuffers like Lindy Little Joe jigs spinners and bottom bouncers or a worm blower for the tackle box and Storm Fishing Lures Lures are always a good gift.
  5. If you really want to buy a gift that keeps on giving then the new EX300CWG walleye grade reel from Quantum rods and Reels Fish with the best is a super bait casting reel and an ideal choice for serious walleye anglers. The EX300CWG reel features a special trolling switch to instantly feed line to light biting walleyes and instantly re-engages for hook sets.
  6. Or you might want to purchase a Lowrance Electronics the walleye pro's choice LMS 350 A ( Depth finder) so the whole family can see all the fish that are down there.   Plus this unit will provide you with features like GPS that will allow you to get back to the dock after a long day on the water.
  7. When shopping for that sports person, listen to what they would like and make a note of the things.   Some things might have nothing to do with fishing.   For example, a good friend of mine would like DeeZee running boards for his truck. Others, might like a warm light weight rain suit to keep in the boat.
Most important thing to remember when considering a gift for the sportsmen is to keep it simple and well within your budget. If you have a young child allow them to make something for the sportsman.  Remember the gift is in the giving.  It can be as simple as a carved whistle, or as elaborate as a new boat motor and trailer.  Whatever it might be the ideal gift for your sportsman is within us all, just stop and think and you will come up with the ideal gift.
