We’re not going to be that person and say Christmas is around the corner. It’s still October, after all. But we’re always on the lookout for new and interesting fishing gadgets on the market – whether it’s for commercial purposes or just the great outdoors.
In that spirit, we’ve done some digging around and found some pretty useful stuff. So if you’re trading in your equipment soon, or looking for something a bit different in 2017, here’s a few fishing gadgets we’d love to test out soon.
Ever wanted a coffee flask, LED flashlight and compass built into one handy gadget?
Then look no further than the VSSL Flask. This nice little gadget is perfect for amateur and commercial fishermen alike, and is made from aluminum and glass-coated materials – meaning it’s surprisingly durable (and doesn’t come with that unpleasant metallic taste).
You might have heard of Tenkara before. But this Japanese brand is famous for making super-slim, lightweight fishing rods that can actually fit inside your pocket.
What’s better, Tenkara rods are designed to be used at different lengths – allowing you to use the same rod for different types of angling.
This handy gadget is perfect for people who spend time in the outdoors.
Windcatcher AirPads are portable camping mattresses that can be inflated and packed away in seconds. There’s no manual pumping, no heavy lifting, and they’re easy to keep clean too.
We definitely one to test this one out.
Rumpl High Performance Blanket
Rumpl High Performance Blankets feature some of the same materials as our waterproof fishing gear. These waterproof blankets are great for camping, but also for hobby anglers who fish in the colder months.
The material (20D ripstop nylon) is tear resistant and also repels odour, dirt and any liquid that comes your way.
Pair it together with a VSSL Flask and you’ll be set for the night.
We aren’t promoting drinking on the job, of course. But if you’re enjoying a spot of fishing at the weekend and want to keep your beer nice and cool, then you’ll need to wrap them up first.
These useful Beer Blankets are also made from 20D ripstop nylon and help to keep the cool air in, and everything else out.
Fishing gadgets for 2017
We might be jumping the gun on fishing gadgets for next year. However, there’s already plenty of stuff on the market to get us excited for 2017 – especially when it comes to fishing at the weekend.
