As the temperature (finally) starts to rise out there, I know lots of guys’ sights get set on hitting the lakes, ponds and rivers in search of the one that got away last year.

As for gifts for the fisherman, like with many hobbies, the key is to try and steer clear of specific equipment and gear. To avoid the guesswork, you should think of gifts to complement his love of fishing. So with the fishing fanatic in mind, here are 7 Gifts the he will definitely consider “keepers”.


ManCrates are the duded-out, manly take on gift baskets (you open it with a crow bar!). Filled with everything he will need for a day on the lake, the “Gone Fishing” crate is the gifting equivalent of a trophy catch.

On the practical side, you’ll be doing him a favor by updating his fishing apparel. The ExOfficio Baja shirt is extremely lightweight and is treated to protect him from the sun and keep the bugs away. The Helios Sun Hat from Outdoor Research is a must so he does get fried out there while he tries to catch dinner.

Keeping with the practical theme, a multi-tool makes a great gift for guys in general. For the fisherman, the Leatherman Juice CS4 has a dozen plus features and will go right in the tackle box and stay there for a long time as a truly indispensable tool.

Fishermen can rarely contain their passion for the outdoors, so much so their devotion usually transcends indoors as well, so I’ve rounded up some fun gifts for the home: The fisherman’s toilet paper roll and the Largemouth Bass nightlight are really fun gifts, they may get relegated to his Man Cave set up. But he’ll totally love and use the Reel Fishing 3 piece BBQ set to grill up the day’s catch.
