TackleTour Holiday Gift Guide 2010 Part 2 - Lures and Accessories for both the Naughty and Nice (continued)

Watercraft Accessory (Durasafe Codeable locks): Probably the most innovative automobile/watercraft accessory we have seen in years are the Durasafe Codeable Locks. Available as a padlock or receiver lock these locks will code to your primary automobile key so you don't need to carry extra keys. With a weather resistant shutter and solid zinc core and protective jacket these locks are able to withstand shock and the elements.

Code to your own car key and lock it down Durasafe style!


A unique 6 plate tumbler sidebar makes it nearly impossible to pick. These locks are great for securing everything from trailers and spares to bikes and tool sheds. The padlocks retail for $27.99 while the receiver locks retail for $36.99. Strong, reliable and extremely convenient with a codeable design these locks are a great gift for outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. These quality locks are available now at Tackle Warehouse.


Costa Del Mar makes a complete range of premium optics with various lens options


Optics (Costa Del Mar): Costa sunglasses are among the highest end sunglasses that anglers can buy. Featuring a range of lens options the 580 glass options give anglers excellent clarity and polarized performance. One our favorite styles is the rugged Harpoon Voyager version which features spring hinges for extra comfort and extremely durable nylon frames that can be fitted with prescription lenses. A normal pair will set you back $148 dollars but add 580 glass lenses versus the standard CR39 lenses and your looking at a $248 retail price. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Not only do they deliver excellent performance on the water but they look great as an everyday pair of sunglasses and come backed with a lifetime warranty. The complete range of Costa Del Mar sunglasses are available now at Hi's Tackle Box.


Wiley X sunglasses are worn by some of the biggest name pros on tour including Skeet Reese, Boyd Duckett and Jared Lintner


Optics (Wiley X Scissor Sunglasses): For those anglers looking for a more affordable option Wiley X has a number of very stylish yet highly functional polarized sunglasses specifically designed for anglers. These are the sunglasses that are so often seen sported by Pro Angler Skeet Reese. In fact he has his own style called the Skeet Reese Xcess which features his trademark blue lenses for $145.99 or smoke lenses for only $103.99. For those anglers looking for a more traditional frame there is the X Scissor style which is also available in blue mirror lenses and also utilizes the company's proprietary lens technology which adds 99.9% polarization to 100% UV protection for excellent clarity and contrast in bright conditions. One of the best things about Wiley X sunglasses is they come complete with a leash cord and zippered case. A wide assortment of Wiley X sunglasses are available at Tackle Warehouse


The Gill Inshore Lite is a great foul weather jacket for warm weather conditions (Zander didn't protest too much when the ladies wanted the jacket)


Foul Weather Gear (Gill Inshore Lite IN10 Jacket): Gill is well known among the sailing community and has made a big push into the bass fishing world with their premium apparel in the last few seasons. How serious are they? For starters they signed BASS Elite Series Angler Dean Rojas and also provide the foul weather gear for Team Yamaha. Gill apparel is known for quality and what makes the IN10 jacket so good is that it provides waterproof protection while still allowing anglers to be very mobile. This lightweight jacket is designed for warmer days and you can wear layers underneath in case temperatures do drop. Adjustable velcro cuffs help make sure no wind or water get into the jacket when casting and landing fish and the laminate fabric is designed to hold up over the long term. This jacket has been in our review queue for a year now and continues to hold up well, so well in fact that it is making the trip down to the Amazon with us shortly. The Gill Inshore Lite jacket is available now for $144.95 at Tackle Warehouse.


Buff's deliver great sun protection while fishing and can be worn many different ways 


Apparel Accessory (Buff Sun Protection): When out on the water all day long, your neck is one of the most vulnerable parts of your body. It is constantly exposed to the sun. Even if you wear a UV fabric button down shirt with a collar, your neck is never really fully shielded unless you have a Buff. Multifunctional and available in UV protective fabric, Buffs just make sense, and after seeing how Casey and MJ choose to wear them, we couldn’t agree more. Buffs are available in a wide range of fish patterns for only $22.99 each at Monster Fishing Tackle.


Looking for UV protection in a comfortable and stylish shirt? You need look no further than Under Armour Flats Guide II shirts

Apparel (Under Armour Flats Guide II Shirts): UV protection from your clothing is almost common place in today’s outdoor apparel choices - and for good reason. You just cannot be too careful anymore in seeking protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Under Armour’s Flats Guide II Shirt won Editor’s Choice honors at the beginning of this year and continues to perform well for us out on the water – even if we’re still waiting for the TackleTour logo’d versions. Tackle Warehouse has an assortment of these excellent fishing shirts available now.

Conclusion: The 2010 Holiday gift Guide is in the books and Casey and MJ had a great time sharing our HGG picks with you. Here's to a great winter fishing season and thanks to you, all our readers, for a great 10 year anniversary. From all of us here at TackleTour have a very Happy Holidays!
