On The Fly Gear
By Polly Dean
As we near the holiday season, we all can use gift ideas for the angler in our lives. We may even want to provide that extra encouragement that a spouse, child or friend may need to become a future fishing buddy. At On the Fly South, we very much appreciate the advertising support we receive and want to remind our subscribers, that a gift certificate for a guided trip, fly-casting lesson or fishing gear is never the wrong size and always appreciated.
Following are ideas and suggestions for the angler on your gift list:
