For that special person out there, here is the Texas Freshwater Fly Fishing gift guide to help you find the perfect gift. Every gift on this list is under $100 and has a connection to Fly Fishing in Texas (in one way or another.)
Double Haul Leatherworks
Fly Wallet - $85.00
Made completely by hand, and made to order. They are made using 6 ounce vegetable tanned leather with a lining made of real New Zealand sheep skin. The vast majority of other fly wallets use artificial acrylic “sheepskin”. The closure button is solid brass.
Designed to be different than others, so it was modeled after an envelope. It even has a trout stamp on the back (which can be omitted). Color options are either natural leather or brown. Made to be the exact dimensions of a standard 6”x3 1/2” Wheatley fly box, allowing you to place the wallet anywhere that you can place your box. The sheepskin is 6”x6” giving ample room for the day’s fly selection.
Shipping is free within the 48 states, and the turn around time is less than a week.
Kameron Hoodie - $95
Texas Freshwater Fly Fishing Books - $97.96 (for all three)
It may be a “best-kept secret,” but central Texas has some of the best fly fishing in America. With Texas native and fly fishing expert Aaron Reed as your guide, enjoy dozens of wades and paddles, all within easy reach of Austin.
Discover secluded spring creeks braced by soaring limestone cliffs. Wade in broad pools dotted with lily pads and stands of water willow. Paddle deep, slow rivers. Easy-to-follow narrative, detailed maps, and gorgeous color photographs make it easy to “Go fishing now!” even if you have only a few hours to spare.
