TU launches 2018 Gift Guide

Mike Sepelak fishes the Redington Butter Stick on a remote trout stream in Idaho.

Over the course of the last several months, TU staffers and volunteers have taken new fly-fishing and outdoors products into the fiel

d to test them against the fish and the elements that make our craft so special.

Now, after having tested the gear and given us their thoughts, we’ve compiled this wealth of information into the 2018 Trout Unlimited Gift Guide to make shopping for the fly angler in your family a little easier.

Looking for a good, quality fly rod? We’ve reviewed many of them, from the wispy Redington Butter Stick to the Sage IGNITER to offerings from Cabela’s, Mystic and Scott. How about a new on-stream pack? Simms and Vedavoo have products you might be interested in.

Maybe your wish list includeds a new tent? We’ve got you covered, there, too. Or a new pair or waders? Wading boots? A rain jacket? Tying tools?

It’s all in the 2018 Trout Unlimited Gift Guide. Check it out and see if we can’t help you make the Holidays special for the fly anglers in your life.
