Gift Ideas Under $10 for Salmon & Steelhead Anglers

Anglers can be incredibly hard to shop for if you don’t share the same passion for fishing as they do. There are so many different types of fishing gear to choose from that are species and technique specific. Gift cards are always great option but gifts always feel more special to me when someone has taken the time to find the perfect gift.

These are some fun inexpensive gift ideas that either catch fish or make the experience more enjoyable.
