2015 Mother's Day Gifts

Mothers Day GiftsEvery year the fly fishing market continues to offer more amazing products designed to meet the needs of the hardcore fly fishing female. Check out our Mother's Day Gift Guide for the fishing women in your life.

Fishpond: The Vaquero Recycled Nylon

The lightweight fabric and mesh back is comfy to wear all day, and the pouches to hold supplies and tools are just low enough to not interfere with ladies' chest anatomy. Adjustability in the shoulder and waist straps accommodate nearly any shape, and the fishpond quality we all know and love is no exception here. $149.95 fishpondusa.com

Costa Manta Shads

Manta is one of Costa's sunglass styles built specifically for active women. Performance features include great wrap-fit and hypoallergenic no-slip nose pads and interior lining to keep the sunglasses comfortably in place all day. Manta style can be customized in its full array of patented color enhancing polarized 580™ lenses. The amazing 580 lens selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens, and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. $169. costadelmar.com

Columbia Ultimate Chill II Long Sleeve Shirt

This lightweight, stretchy, long-sleeve shirt has Columbia's sweat-activated cooling technology. The fit is trim and feminine, while the fabric's stretch allows for range of motion. The Ultimate Chill II keeps you comfortable during hot and long summer days on the water. It also features a stand-up sun collar that is tall enough to make a difference. columbia.com $90

Fishpond Chica

With adjustable straps and a feminine cut, it's clear Fishpond has put effort into the Chica Women's Vest. A total of nine interior and exterior pockets offers a home for everything from fly boxes to lunch. A large back pouch allowed me to easily bring along extra layers, and fleece-lined handwarmer pockets hold the promise of more comfortable cold-weather fishing. As with all things Fishpond, attractive colors and Western detailing make this a cute vest with big personality. fishpondusa.com $140

Orvis Silver Sonic Convertible-Top Waders

Comfortable and easy to move in, these convertibles give you options in warm weather. SonicSeam Technology ensures there are no bulky seams to rub in awkward places, and a flip-out interior pocket offers a secure place for valuables. The fabric is light, and packs down smaller than some competitors — important for ladies who travel. orvis.com$260

Patagonia Spring River Wader

Patagonia has redesigned their women's waders and brought several innovations to the market. EZ-Lock suspenders are mounted at the waist and allow for quick conversion from waist to chest waders, and they also unclip to allow for a quick drop-seat feature. The fit is trim but allows free movement, and the drop seat feature makes river life easier. The waders are comfortable at full height, or worn at the waist, and the wool-lined neoprene booties are cool and comfortable even on warmer days. A flip-out dry bag mounted inside the chest provides a safe haven for a cell phone and an extra camera battery. patagonia.com$400

Redington Siren Waders

Designed to fit a woman's body, the Siren Waders come in two different fit options with suspenders with a stretchy mesh back panel and neoprene underarm gussets for a flattering fit. Neoprene gussets on the upper wader ensure comfort for any chest size. redington.com $220

Simms G3 Waders

Offered in both a hoody and a crewneck, Simm's COR3 fabric technology is wicking and antimicrobial, boasting a UPF of 50. A longer body and finger loops offer protection for sunny days on the water. They offer superb sun protection and are comfortable in the heat, but the fabric seems a bit susceptible to snagging. simmsfishing.com $500

Simms Solarflex Hoody

Offered in both a hoody and a crewneck, Simm's COR3 fabric technology is wicking and antimicrobial, boasting a UPF of 50. A longer body and finger loops offer protection for sunny days on the water. They offer superb sun protection and are comfortable in the heat, but the fabric seems a bit susceptible to snagging. The subtle prints and new colors will be a welcome addition to my closet.simmsfishing.com>
