Our HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE………….
My oh my, where do we start? This year we have added a some new lines and expanded on the products we had. There have been some great products introduced and some “old reliable” standards that appeal every holiday season. We’ve divided this into “Great Gifts” and “Stocking Stuffers”. We hope you will find something that appeals!
G. LOOMIS rods are simply the best. All G. Loomis rods have a lifetime warranty which means you are buying a legacy product that can easily be passed down to the next generation. You can’t do much better! The new Deep Flex Crankbait rods have been extremely popular, as have the new Top Water Series rods. There is a new Frog Rod Series and a new Jerkbait Series. All the the Walleye Rods have been redesigned with 8 GLX models. For the saltwater fishermen the new Pro Green Series rods as just awesome.
If you travel to your fishing destinations then the Escape Travel Rods are a great gift, as are the G. Loomis Escape Luggage and Tackle bags and accessories. We also LOVE the new Trout Spin 2 pc rods with 2 GLX models and the Classic Trout and Panfish Rods. The SR842-2 GLX is one of our most popular rods with good reason. One of my favorites as well.
We also love the G. Loomis Tournament Jacket as a great gift. They are very well made, look great, and last forever. Mine has been washed, stuffed, slimed, dunked, you name it and still looks great and works fine at keeping my old body warm.
is a one-of-a-kind high carbon razor steel knife that just is without equal. With its lifetime warranty and super sharp edge nothing else even comes close. Add the custom English leather sheath and you have the world’s best fillet knife.
Our ALL WOOD ROTATING ROD RACK with 2 free G. Loomis Decals (unapplied) makes another wonderful gift for you or your best fishing buddy. This is an all hardwood rack that holds 40 rods (or 24 combos) with a rotating base. Great workmanship and quality. These JUST ARRIVED and right now we have 50 in stock.
SHIMANO REELS and RODS are always appreciated. The new Stradic CI4 spinning reels are currently in stock in both the 2500 and 1000 size. These super lightweight and technologically advanced reels are marvelous. All of the new Cumara Reaction rods are in stock along with almost all of the better casting and spinning reels. And yes, we still have the Tescata TSS70XL rods on sale at $79.99 (normally $199.99).
Shimano, simply put, makes some of the world’s best fishing reels and rods. Not only are they finely tuned, precision instruments, but they last and last and last. Top-of-the-line Calcutta DC casting reels, Calais DC low profile reels, Stella spinning reels, Tiagra Big Game reels, and Torsa lever drag reels are world’s best by which all others are judged. Anyone would love one of these under the tree!
DAIWA RODS AND REELS also make wonderful gifts. We love the STEEZ rods and reels. Plus, we have most of the new saltwater reels now in stock and ready for Christmas. The ZILLION rods and reels are also great gifts and deliver a ton of bang-for-the-buck performance. Don’t forget the Certate spinning reels for the ultimate top-of-the-line Daiwa spinning reel.
is consider the crème de la crème of fish grips as well as IGFA certifiable scales. Made in the good ole’ USA these are fine, fine tools. Once you use one of these any Chinese knock off just doesn’t do it. Folks, there definitely IS a difference. This is something any fisherman would love to have.
STICK JACKET rod covers are innovative and the best we have found. Inexpensive yet so very useful. They come in assorted colors so you can identify one rod from another. Great gift!
are just fun! Sizes from small to XXXL means that everyone can find his or her size. Wear one of these and you’re sure to start a interesting conversation.
are an American Legacy Exclusive. These show actual game fish skeletons and come in a variety of colors and fish species. Great inexpensive gift for you and yours.
is a unique product that I personally use. It’s waterproof paper with a pen that will write under water! No more squishy pages, no more runny ink. Even has a field for GPS waypoints!
ARDENT REEL LUBE PRODUCTS and CULLING SYSTEM are so well designed. We use the lube products exclusively for all of our reel service. The culling kits is the best available as well as the easiest to use.
MEGABASS LURES are always appreciated in any fisherman’s stocking. Highly detailed and engineered they really do make catching easier. We have the world’s largest assortment. If you haven’t tried one of these you’re missing out!
LIVE TARGET LURES were designed by Grant Koppers and are one of the few lures sold here in the USA that actually “match the hatch” for North American game fish. Great details and performance at a very reasonable price.
SUNLINE FLUOROCARBON and MONO LINES come from Japan and in our opinion are the best available. This year the product line expanded to laeder materials and some very specific technique/situation lines. This will improve your catch ratio!
AIRFLO FLY LINES and LEADERS are the brand G. Loomis uses in developing all of their fly rods. With the new Ridge finish these lines fly through the guides like nothing else. If you fly fish you really need to try the Airflo lines as well as the pre-cut leaders.
CABLZ SUNGLASSES LANYARDS is a product we “discovered” at this years ICAST show. One of those “I wish I had thought of that” items that really fill a need. The days of sweaty, smelly lanyards are gone.
FISH HOOK REMOVAL KITS were one of my “must have” items when we came back from ICAST. So I bought heavy thinking every fisherman would want one or two. Not. Whatzamatter with you guys? You know you hook yourself or your buddy sometimes. Man up and get a couple of these!
