Giving your favorite angler the perfect Christmas gifts can be a daunting task so we tried to make it a little easier on you. In this Christmas gift suggestion piece, we divided various gift ideas into different categories based on Budget- less than $10, Mid Range - under $100 and High End where you're willing to spend a few hundred dollars (or more) to bring a smile to that angler's face. We even have a special book review section ... highlighting three great books that came out this year. We begin by helping you try to fill an angler’s tackle box with some of the hottest lures for both open and hardwater tackle boxes. These lures are great stocking stuffers or gifts coming in at around $10 or less.
