Top 5 Last Minute Fishing Gift Ideas for Christmas: Sportsman’s Guide

Need some last minute gift ideas for the angler in your life? Check out these picks from Sportsman’s Guide.

You hear it many times from people around Christmas, “I don’t know what to get him or her for a gift.”

Well, for outdoorsy people this is a problem easily solved.

Fishermen are actually super easy to get gifts for because an angler can always use more gear. Have a look at what the Sportsman’s Guide can provide your loved one; and they truly provide short order options for those last minute gifting requirements.

The Sportsman’s Guide can provide three-day, two-day and next day delivery of these last-minute gift ideas.

Pflueger Endeavor Baitcasting Combo

Every baitcasting fisherman can use a new rod in their repertoire. This high quality medium-action graphite rod with reel will be perfect for bass, walleye and lake trout fishing needs for lake or river.

The reel is engineered using a reinforced graphite frame and anodized aluminum spool. This is a superior rod combo for a great price.

Fenwick Eagle Rod / Pflueger Medalist Reel Fly Fishing Kit

Like the baitcaster, the fly fisherman can always use another fly rod and reel combo. Beware of cheap packages that feature plastic reels and non-graphite rods. With this package you are getting a high-end fly rod and tough quality reel.

Pflueger is an American icon when it comes to fly fishing reels and they have teamed up with Fenwick to provide a high quality package.

You get a machined aluminum reel and a four-section graphite rod. This package is truly a modern classic. It is the perfect gift for those looking to get into fly fishing or for that veteran angler who always needs another quality and portable rod and reel combo.

Rebel Classic Critters 4-Pc. Lure Kit

There is one thing that can be guaranteed, a fisherman always can use more lures. This is the yearly go-to gift for my father-in-law.

A dedicated angler is always losing lures and can use replacements to replenish that tackle box. Rebel provides this great lure pack that will be perfect for your freshwater fishing needs come springtime.

I use Rebel lures and they are excellent for bass and walleye, and versatile for casting or trolling to get strikes.

Plano 7771 Pro System Tackle Box

Another great gift idea is a new tackle box. If you can check out what the angler in your life is using, I can bet it likely is a beat-up and worn out old box that can use a replacement.

Another thing most fishermen need is a bigger tackle box, as over the years they keep cramming more gear and lures into that undersized old tackle box.

The Plano 7771 provides a one-stop tackle and gear storage solution that any angler will appreciate. With spacious storage for tackle and gear, this will make for more efficient outings for the angler.

Much like another fishing rod combo, the fisherman in your life can always use an upgrade in their tackle box.

Clam 2000 Cabin 2-man Ice Fishing Shelter

The final hot gift idea is getting the Clam 200 Cabin 2-man Ice Fishing Shelter for that hardwater angler that you know. There has been a recent explosion of use in highly portable and light shelters.

Unlike classic ice fishing, with large wood stationary huts, these shelters provide mobility, allowing you to target the most productive fishing areas. Being able to move around equates to more productive fishing.

This shelter is currently being offered at an unbeatable price, and its weather-resistant material and large 4-foot x 6-foot floor area shelter packs up into a highly portable backpack. This is another gift that will be well appreciated by either the well-experienced angler or the novice who is just getting started ice fishing.
