2017 Holiday Gift Guide (Part3): Line, Terminal Tackle, Apparel and Accessories
Fishing Shirt (AFTCO M63001 Fish Ninja Longsleeve): Do you AFTCO?
Well if you or your fishing partner don't, you may want to pay attention to the
product by this active wear clothing manufacturer. American Fishing Tackle
Company has been in the business since 1958 and just recently set their sights
on the Bass Fishing world and a couple of their products have really caught our
attention for the coming review season.
Fishing Shirt : AFTCO Fish Ninja Longsleeve
First up is their Fish Ninja Longsleeve shirt featuring a built in gator and hoodie in a light weight, 50+ UV protection fabric. This shirt is perfect for those who spend long days out in the sun not just fishing, but any outdoor activity. AFTCO's Fish Ninja Longsleeve Shirt is available in sizes medium through 2x-large and retails for $69.99 at
Fishing Short : AFTCO Tactical Shorts
Fishing Shorts (AFTCO M82 Tactical Shorts): Tired of wearing cotton shorts while you fish? Have you given in to wearing board shorts instead but lament the lack of pockets? AFTCO has the solution with their new M82 Tactical Shorts made with the fisherman in mind. These shorts are made of a synthetic fabric that is water resistant and dries quickly and features five pockets in all including a plier pocket on the left front. AFTCO's M82 Tactical Short is available in waist sizes 32 through 40 and retails for $61.99 at
Foul Weather Suit : Simms Challenger Bib & Jacket
Foul Weather (SIMMS Challenger Bib & Jacket): The arrival of Fall means only one thing Winter is coming. While a good rainsuit probably won't help you or your favorite angler against the White Walkers, it will keep you dry, and with proper layering, warm when the weather turns bad. Our pick for this year's gift guide is the Challenger
Rain Bib &
Jacket by Simms. Positioned a notch or two below their
Pro Dry rainsuit in terms of price, Simms relies on more fabric layering technology in this suit rather than the GoreTex fabric name. Our review of this suit is almost complete but in the meantime, the entire Challenger suit is available for $400, or $200 for either the jacket or bib right now at TackleWarehouse.
Foul Weather Gloves : Gill FG23 Waterproof Drivers Gloves
Foul Weather Gloves (Gill FG23 Waterproof Drivers Gloves): If you fish during the winter, then you already know the one garment that is overlooked more than any other is a nice pair of gloves to keep your hands warm during those runs from spot to spot. Gill's FG23 Waterproof Drivers Gloves are an excellent addition to any angler's foul weather gear arsenal and are comfy to use and wear whether it's raining or not. After all, you can't fish if your fingers are frozen! Gill's FG23 Waterproof Drivers Gloves are available for $49.95 a pair at
Foul Weather Accessory : STORMR Waterproof Cell
Foul Weather Accessory (STORMR
Waterproof Cell Jacket):
These days many anglers rely on their smartphone as their primary camera for
documenting catches and immortalizing memories.
STORMR offers anglers extra protection from water
and sand with the Cell Jacket which allows anglers to stow their phone in
seconds, courtesy of a dual magnetic closure, and yet still maintain full
function of their phone through the bag. The Cell Jacket is also designed to be
very transparent so that anglers can operate menus with ease and take pictures
through the bag, even under the water!
This simple and elegant solution is designed
to work with the complete array of phones and there are two sizes available to
accommodate standard and plus size phones. The STORMR Waterproof Cell Jacket is
available now at
TackleWarehouse for $27.99-$32.95 depending on the size.
