10 Great Gifts for the Fly Tyer

Do you have a fly tyer on your Christmas list? Check out our top 10 gift ideas below.

Gift Idea #1 - Dyna King Barracuda Junior Fly Tying Vise

If you really want to spoil the fly tier on your Christmas list, the Dyna King Barracuda Junior Fly Tying Vise is the way to go! This is our top fly tying vise which we stock because, simply put, it's phenomenal.  This vise features a stainless-steel construction and carries a lifetime warranty. It also has a hardened-steel jaw that can hold a hook so tightly that even a heavy-duty hook can be bent without it moving in the jaws. It’s really impressive.

Gift Idea #2 - Dr. Slick Fly Tying Tools

There are some mandatory tools for fly tying such as scissors, bobbins, whip finishers, hair stackers, bodkins and more.  Dr. Slick has the full line-up of quality tools for fly tying.

Gift Idea #3 - Ahrex Fly Hooks

A good hook is one of the most important pieces of the fishing puzzle. Ahrex Fly Hooks have grown significantly in popularity and for good reason. These hooks are very sharp and of very high quality. A few packs of Ahrex hooks in the stocking would be greatly appreciated.

Gift Idea #4 - Fly Tying Kits

We have two built in-house fly tying kits available. One is a deluxe kit and one is a standard kit and they’re both very good. The deluxe fly tying kit has more materials, better tools and a higher quality vice.  Either kit is a great gift option for someone looking to get into fly tying.

Gift Idea #6 - Dyna-King 3” Trim Bag

Fly tying can be a somewhat messy business, especially when working with a material like deer hair. Help keep the tying area neater with a 3” trim bag from Dyna-King. This bag attaches to the bottom of your fly tying vise. Trimmings and discarded materials fall into the bag instead of all over your floor and table.

Gift Idea #10 - The Osprey Fly Box Book

The Osprey Fly Fishers of BC founded in 1969 have produced an awesome compilation of club members’ favorite patterns as well as patterns by other known BC anglers. There are even some patterns in the book by former Sea-Run owner Kelly Davison and long-time staff member Andrew Redmont.  Pattern recipes and pictures are included with every pattern. The Osprey Fly Box Book includes a variety of patterns for different applications. This is a great gift idea.
