Fly Holiday Gift Guide Picks: We cap this season's Holiday Gift Guide off with our picks in the fly category. There is something therapeutic about being in the beautiful surroundings while fly fishing but with Ms. Casey on hand the word "sexy" and "fly" can officially be used in the same sentence. 


Simms G3 Guide Vest is built tough and has plenty of storage for all your fly needs


Fly Fishing Vest: (Simms G3) When you care enough to purchase among the very best. Itís tough to argue the popularity of Simms apparel in the fly fishing world. Quality begets quality in every seem, fold, and cut of their garments.


Ummm... Nice vest.


The Simms G3 Guide Vest is the baddest vest on the block and features shoulders that have contoured spacers for comfort and ventilation and a non crushable knit collar that will not retain water. A magnetic buckle and zipper and magnetic tool catcher make it easy to access all your tools on the fly (no pun intended). The guide vest is loaded with easily accessible storage and has thermo-laminated tippet pockets. Available in two colors (orange and taupo green) and sizes S-XXL.   


G.Loomis Whisper Creek Fly Rods are designed for smooth casting presentations and features fine diameter tips


Fly Fishing Rod: (G.Loomis Whisper Creek Fly Rods) Based upon the original StreamDance GLX Presentation series fly rods, G.loomis has tweaked the design and changed the color to clearly distinguish these smooth casting "presentation" action rods from other rod's in their series.


What are you thinking Ms. Casey? 

Featuring the fine diameter tips these rods are specifically designed to load up close for accurate shorter casts to spooky fish using Gossamer tippets. When stealth and precision are more important than overwhelming force, these are the rods to have in hand. The rods in this series are truly premium and retail from $575-$620 depending on model and are available at the G.Loomis Superstore at Monster Tackle.

Ms. Casey has Abel on her mind, these premium reels can be customized for a truly one of a kind gift


Fly Fishing Reel: (Abel) So when a tackle enthusiast decides to delve into the darkness that is fly fishing, the question is, where to go in order to fulfill that need for something unique, eye catching, and exclusive? Well, anyone familiar with the world of fly fishing knows, you donít have to look very hard. Abelís complete line of reels more than fulfills this need and is small enough to be a great stocking stuffer for that avid fly fisherman on your list. Looking for something truly unique? Abel has the ability to custom paint and anodize artistic patterns on their reels to make sure this gift is truly one of a kind.


What is in the reel bag?

Fly Fishing Line: (Scientific Anglers Sharkskin) When it comes to the latest in fly fishing technology anglers turn to the team at SA. The company's new Sharkskin lines have been making waves in the industry. By modifying the surface of the fly line with a micro-repeating structure, it is possible to achieve surface interface properties that mimic nature such as the ability of insects to walk on water, the shedding and self-cleaning ability of Lotus leaves, or the adhesion that allows a gecko to walk up vertical surfaces. Scientific Anglers Sharkskin technology is a precise texturing process that embosses the surface of the fly line coating with a repeating geometric micro-pattern. The finished surface is no longer smooth, no longer exhibits unwanted line flash, and can be optimized via the engineered shape, depth, and frequency of the pattern to yield greatly improved line-to-water floatation, casting performance, and overall line suppleness and durability. When it comes time to respool your reels this holiday season Sharkskin lines are a quick and easy upgrade that makes sense.   

Scientific Anglers Sharkskin lines turn to nature for inspiration
