Get your gear ready , Cold weather has brought us an early ice season. I came across this article in the Sunday paper while drinking my coffee and my excitement level shot through the roof . I ran through the house showing everyone, and now sharing this info to you my fellow ice anglers. Our first ice fishing adventure will take place after the new year. Also just got an HD camcorder so Keep an eye out for great ice fishing Videos. (Coming Soon)
So anyways…my little sock is full of super great ideas for any fishergirl or fisherboy on your list…and all of these things fit right into a stocking!!! AND…at the end of this post, there is a special little suprise just waiting!!!
First, I have Berkely Line Clippers. Now these are great for a multitude of little odd jobs when fishing…they cut your line, they make switching lures faster,ect. PLUS, they have a strap that goes around your neck to ensure that they are always easily accessible when needed. They are from Berkley, a trusted brand that is made to last.
They are also pretty cheap at only 2 bucks!!!
Second, I have PLANO POCKET STOWAWAY BOXES.
I would be incredibly happy to find Plano anything stuffed into my stocking on Christmas morning!!! (Hint Hint Santa!!)
Now, I love this because it allows you to take great pictures with a zoom without having to get your fancy camera wet and nasty…enough said!!
The fourth item on my list are BODY WARMERS…I LOVE THESE THINGS!!! I never travel to Canada without them. We all know that it can get cool on the water at any time during the year…the winds on the water can be brutal. These little GENIUS inventions can slip right into your gloves or right into your boots to keep your fingers and toesies completely warm and cozy. My sister-in-law always manages to mooch a few off me…she loves them, too!!! They also come in BODY size for those cold Canadian nights in the bunks!!
One last great idea for a stocking is CHAPSTICK.
I love my chapsticks, and I always keep a variety of them in my tacklebox in case I forget mine on the water. They come in a variety of flavors and for a dollar a tube…you can’t beat the price. They are also a little unexpected treat to find in a stocking!!! Plus they can act as a protectant in case your forget your SPF!!!
