Think Small Think Stocking Stuffers

by Angler’s Covey Staff


Sometimes when we’re out shopping for that angling-loving significant other in our life, we get caught up in thinking about the big items — boots, rods, reels.  Instead, go small!  Here are some of the best stocking stuffer ideas that round out the accessories a well-equipped fly angler needs in that pack or on that lanyard!  


Fishpond Headgate tippet holder. Regular and NEW XL

The head gate tippet holder has quickly become one of the most popular tippet holds on the market. And for good reason. When you use Fishpond’s Headgate tippet dispensers, you will wonder why no one has thought of anything like it before. The spring loaded hinge design allows an angler to easily add, remove, and carry most tippet spools with ease. Just clip it on somewhere close and forget about the days of looking through your waders, vest, or pack searching for those loose spools. The all new Headgate XL is an enlarged version of our popular Headgate. The new XL size was designed specifically for holding 4” spools so you can have the same great features as our standard size when you’re saltwater fishing. Also, if you want to hold a larger variety of standard spools, the XL can hold up to thirteen spools.


Rep your water sun shield

This 100% polyester sun shield will keep you protected from dangerous UV rays while out on the water. Every angler needs a few of these in their gear bag. Say no to skin cancer! ON SALE-9.99




Stanley’s Ice off paste by LOON

Another must have product for the angler who fishes year round. Stanley’s ice off paste helps keep those guides on your rods free of ice and will stop the “Instant Tenkara” effect on your rod.  This is a non-toxic anti-freeze paste for lines and guides to help keep them from freezing, even when temperatures are dipping below 0. It is safe for the environment as well as fly lines and rods.



Custom fly assortment from our professional guides and staff! Every angler needs flies, and flies can be hard to buy for someone else. Different locations dictate different fly patterns and sizes. Let our staff put together a custom box for you and solve all of the guesswork for you. Any combination can be done. Tailwaters, freestone rivers, terrestrials, stillwater, specific locations, etc. 


Simms Tightlines glove

“This glove is my personal favorite, hands down,” writes Jon Easdon. Gloves and fly fishing are an unlikely pair and we often battle between staying warm and remaining functional while out on the river. This glove solves that with its rich feature set. Warm, water-repelling gloves for hardworking hands. Tightline Gloves protect hands from harsh weather, while allowing half exposed thumbs and index and middle fingers to work their line management and knot-tying magic. Hardface fleece paired with a DWR coating bucks wind and water, and a streamlined fit allows for layering under Simms’ GORE-TEX® shell gloves for added warmth. “


Gift certificates for fly fishing classes OR Guided fly fishing trips

There is no greater gift than the gift of fly fishing. We have a gift certificate for any class or guided trip we offer. There are no blackout dates on when these can be used. Pick the class or trip that works for you, choose a date, and schedule it. It’s that easy.
