Looking for the right gift for the super-fly angler in your life? We caught up with some of our guides to see what was on their holiday wish lists.

Brian Berry

Brian loves fishing when the weather gets cooler. Fall fishing has some of the most fun brown trout action there is. For that reason, he recommends a good puffy coat from either Patagonia or Simms as a must for fishing.

Stay warm, catch more fish.

Michael Sanchez

Sun shirts. When you’re on the water all day, the sun’s reflection hits hard. Keep your skin protected without worrying about constantly reapplying sunscreen. The guide’s favorites are Patagonia sun shirts like these.

Less time applying sunscreen, more time fishing.

Josh Checkeroski

For Josh, the must-have gift for fly fishing is a good pair of polarized sunglasses. Polarized lenses are a must for spotting fish, both here in Idaho in the summer, and on the waters in the Florida Keys where he guides in the winter. Learn more about fishing with Josh in Florida at

Chris Scott

There’s no such thing as too many fly boxes. The guide’s favorites are from Umpqua.


Tyler Fark

You can’t land the big one without a reliable net. A great net, and a great net guy, are vital to the fishing operation. Check out Nomad or Rising Fish for a solid net to land your catch.

Shout out to the Net Guy.
