The wife ([I]my[/I] wife, to be specific) is pressing me for last minute ideas for a stocking-stuffer or two for my sister-in-law's husband, who fishes like there's no tomorrow. He even competes in bass tournaments (with no real success yet). The problem is that he's already up to his transom in lures, most of which he's gotten for free from tournament sponsors. So...does the HC hive have any brilliant suggestions for small, relatively inexpensive fishing goodies other than lures?

Is there a limit on $.
3.) DParker - 12/22/2013
Yeah, I guess "relatively inexpensive" was a little vague. :-) I don't have a hard-and-fast limit, but let's say $20 just to have something to work with. But I'm OK with going a few bucks over that too. Like I said, this isn't for a main gift. Just little bonus type stuff you throw in with the main gift.

"relatively inexpensive" to me is not the same as others. Making sure we're on the same page as what "relatively inexpensive" is. Lol. I was going to say a good pair of polarized glasses.

Or a leather man. Great for me when in fishing to get hooks out and others things.

get him a pack of split shots..and some hooks.

LOL! I wasn't being sarcastic. I actually meant that "relatively inexpensive" was too vague. The leather man is a good idea. I don't know if he already has one, but I can probably find out.
9.) Ohbuckhunter - 12/22/2013
Lol. I was being serious. Some people think "relatively inexpensive" is 1000$. I think "relatively inexpensive" is a couple bucks. I'm poor.

A culling system. Berkley makes an inexpensive one. Ardent makes a $40 version.

Reel covers or rod slicks/socks are inexpensive and they're the kind of thing yo can always use but don't necessarily want to spend the money on.

Some rod rack/storage systems for home, vehicle or boat are relatively inexpensive, too.
11.) crookedeye - 12/22/2013
obh getting a leatherman is a huge deal.. its like the Christmas gods have been good to me this year..
12.) Ohbuckhunter - 12/22/2013
Every outdoorsman needs at least 1
13.) DParker - 12/23/2013
Thanks for the suggestions. I went with a good Leather Man. The culling system was a good call too. In fact he asked for one and my wife and her sister picked one up for him yesterday.

Water/nautical charts for his favorite lake (probably already has them, but if he doesn't this could be handy) or 2nd or third favorite fishing areas.

A flask of his favorite nip.

Cheap pair of binocs to keep in boat (I find these really handy, as then I can just leave then in there and not worry about loading & unloading my good binocs).
