Holidays are upon us, and coming up with gift ideas for the angler who has everything could be tough. Katie Johnstone and Jessica Suvak-Tran have teamed up with local Ohio fly shops Mad River Outfitters and The Backpackers Shop and a local Columbus company, Scioto Made, to come up with the perfect gift ideas. We love shopping local and supporting small businesses, we encourage others to do the same this Holiday season.
Katie Johnstone picks from Mad River Outfitters
1. FisheWear Leggings
FisheWear is known for their fun and unique leggings. Their leggings are made out of Italian fabric and are super comfortable to wear on and off the water. They can be worn under waders, wet wading and for so much more. They really are a must have! Local shop, Mad River Outfitters, has them in three different patterns: Troutrageous rainbow, floral fish and dolly vee.
2. FisheWear Wading Belt
The FisheWear wading belt is a great way to bring some fun and color to your waders! We have seen women on the water with these belts and they really do brighten your time on the water. Plus, they add a little fashion to your waders!
3. Simms Challenger Jacket
The Simms Challenger Jacket is a technical, waterproof shell that does great on cold, rainy and windy days. It features two interior pockets and three exterior pockets. The hood actually does a solid job when it is raining. It is a great jacket for the boat, but can also be worn under or over waders. It is quickly becoming my favorite jacket.
